Each February, Consulting Magazine, the flagship magazine for the consulting profession, shines a light on seven hidden gems, smaller firms that are shaking up the profession and challenging some of the industry giants. These companies are breaking new ground in terms of firm management, but they are also breaking new ground in terms of their financial performance. Year in and year out, the Seven Small Jewels far outperform the overall profession. 

"Having made Consulting Magazine’s list of Seven Small Jewels to Watch in 2017, we are especially proud to be among the select few consultancies chosen as its Seven Small Jewels for 2018," says Maine Pointe Chairman and CEO Steve Bowen. "This honor is not only a testament to our continued success in executing our vision, but also to the hard work and unwavering commitment of our people to accelerate value for our clients by helping them optimize their end-to-end supply chain and operations for advantage,” he added.

This latest listing builds on Maine Pointe’s considerable momentum within the industry and closely follows the company’s inclusion on CIO Review’s list of ‘The 20 Most Promising Data Analytics Solution Providers 2018.The company has also previously won accolades for its procurement solutions, award winning remote site services projects and as one of the 30 most trustworthy companies of 2017.

“In 2017 we significantly strengthened our position as a leading authority in measurable supply chain transformation through Total Value Optimization™ , which was featured strongly in the Global Supply Chain Institute’s End-to-End Supply Chain Collaboration Best Practices paper,” said Simon Knowles, Chief Marketing Officer. “Additionally, Steven Bowen, our CEO, launched his book, ‘Total Value Optimization’ which has received further endorsements including taking the No.1 spot in the distribution & warehouse category on Amazon. Being selected as a “Small Jewel” validates the strategic path we are on as we strive to achieve our goal of being the world’s most sought after operational implementation consulting firm,” he added.
