Maine Pointe Named One of Consulting Magazine's Seven Small Jewels to Watch in 2017

(Boston, Mass. – February 23, 2017) Maine Pointe, a global operational implementation consulting firm, has been named as one of Consulting® magazine’s Seven Small Jewels to Watch in 2017. This is in addition to the company being recognized by CIOReview magazine, in December 2016, as one of the Top 20 Procurement Solution Providers.

Each February, Consulting® magazine, the flagship magazine for the consulting profession, shines a light on smaller firms that are shaking up the profession from the bottom up. They are firms breaking new ground in terms of firm management, but they are also breaking new ground in terms of their financial performance.

In addition to its Seven Small Jewels, the magazine recognizes Seven to Watch. These are up-and-coming firms with less than 250 billable consultants that have carved out a niche to help topple some of industry’s giants.

"As you might imagine, Consulting magazine receives hundreds of nominations for just Seven Small Jewels. As a result, there are many, many very good firms left on the outside looking in. Several of these firms stood out in the eyes of our editorial selection committee ... we felt like these excellent firms needed to be on the radar too." Consulting magazine.

This latest recognition builds on the considerable momentum Maine Pointe has gained within the industry. In late 2016, the company was picked by CIO Review magazine as one of the Top 20 Procurement Solution Providers. Maine Pointe was also recognized as instrumental in two award-winning projects which helped the field logistics team of a $50B energy company cut costs and reduce carbon emissions in its aviation, lodging and ground transportation divisions.

"This is the first time Maine Pointe has taken part in the Seven Small Jewels awards and we are delighted that we have been selected as one to watch," said Simon Knowles, Chief Marketing Officer. "We are confident that our rapid, sustained growth, our unique Total Value OptimizationTM approach and ability to deliver sustainable measurable results to our clients will continue to build our reputation for being sought-after in the industry."
