Hands-On Execution Support to Transition to an Internal Team

May 22, 2024 Rachel Halversen

Seven months after acquiring a multi-billion-dollar company and using a strategy consulting firm for the pre-close and post-close integration, the board and executive teams of an F100 company wanted the internal team to start owning the workstreams and synergy realization themselves.

As the consulting team had brought 50+ people to stand up and staff the Integration Management Office (IMO) and regulatory aspects of the commercial integration, the internal team was very lean and lacked different integration-specific skillsets and bandwidth ranging from FP&A to change management to board strategy and communication.

BTG delivered seven talent that were sprinkled across the IMO with perfect-fit skills and expertise to support the internal post-merger integration team for the exact amount of time needed—enabling the client to realize synergies a quarter earlier than expected and keep the workstreams ahead of pace.

The talent included:

  • A business transformation consultant with more than 15 years driving change execution & management, talent strategy, technology adoption, organizational effectiveness, and people experience initiatives
  • An established finance executive with extensive experience leading strategic planning and change management projects in addition to overseeing functional financial operations such as budgeting, internal controls and reporting, audits, and FP&A
  • A senior leader with more than 15 years of M&A, change management, financial analysis, IT implementation, operations improvement, and project management experience
  • A former McKinsey Engagement Manager turned strategy and transformation executive with a wealth of experience defining corporate strategies and leading large-scale business transformations
  • A former EY Engagement Manager and COO turned seasoned independent consultant skilled at leading and executing post-merger integration projects, strategic transformations, and ecommerce innovation initiatives across several sectors
  • A transformation delivery expert with more than 13 years of big-4 consulting experience driving innovative workforce change adoption, organizational redesigns, and program management solutions during high visibility M&A initiatives and IT transformations
  • A former Accenture and Deloitte consultant with deep finance, transformation, and M&A expertise skilled at driving performance, saving operational costs, increasing profitability, and managing risk

Collectively, the talent worked to further the integration initiative and transition workstreams to internal ownership, while helping the company realize exceptional savings and growth opportunities.
