Consulting

What are initial reactions by Navigant 🐠 to the acquisition by Guidehouse? Is it a good thing for them? Seems like a good fit IMO: complement of public and private sector work in a growing platform

Guidehouse is a mess, Alicia and Jill hated each other. Driven by politics vs wanting to help clients. Good luck Navigant.

My personal opinion it’s a bad decision. I think the CEO saw an easy out by selling vs. retiring or stepping down because she couldn't drive her strategic growth plan. I am a member of the Healthcare Consulting team, and it is sad to think the team we built over the last 5-10 years will be disbanding. I do hope Veritas understands that we have strong sellers/leads, but it's the middle management team that has successfully delivered over the years and the knowledge is within our group not at the top. Again, hopefully, they will invest immediately in keeping our core teams together, or they may have thrown away their $1.1B.

Well D2. Jill Olmstead (the former big boss) used to keep Alicia in check when she worked there. Now that Jill isn’t there (she left on her own accord), I don’t know what might happen with the health sector at Guidehouse/Navigant. I’ve heard from several people that Alicia isn’t as hands on as Jill so who knows. In my opinion, Alicia has some huge shoes to fill. It will be interesting to see what happens over the next year.
