Team | PDL Consulting Group

Founding Partners - History PDL Consulting Group’s core team consisted of seven founding partners. The core team believed in collaboration. Once PDL Consulting Group was engaged, our core team made sure that the client’s issues were analyzed by as many of us as possible, and we did so without compromising the efficiency of our work processes or without shifting the internal costs over to our clients. In essence, once clients hired one of us, they got the complementary benefit of having the entire team’s expertise at their disposal. Current team members carry the mantle and operate with the same ethos. Once you engage any of our current principals at PDL, the principal will make sure to take counsel of relevant experts within our team. And we do so with utmost care to ensure confidentiality of your needs. When you sign our engagement letter, we will disclose the members of the team whom we might turn to for support (without adding to your costs of engaging us, of course). Should you have any concerns about the dissemination of your confidential information, please do not hesitate to let us know.
