LYONSCG is Named a Fastest Growing Firm by Consulting Magazine
Congratulations to LYONSCG for being named one of Consulting Magazine’s Fastest Growing firms in 2017! LYONSCG is ranked #41 on the list with 132% growth from 2013-2016. Consulting Magazine caught up with Richard Lyons, CEO & President, to discuss the firm’s financial performance.
Consulting: What were the main factors that contributed to your firm’s growth?
Lyons: We remain steadfast in our mission to inspire and empower our clients to realize their commerce vision and ambitions, whatever they may be. We know that if our clients are successful, then we are successful. We’re fortunate that a lot of our new business comes from client referrals. This is a testament to the talent and commitment of our team. We have developed a strong reputation for quality and reliability in the industry. Retailers want to work with a partner they can trust, and they know that when they work with LYONSCG, we will get the job done right the first time.
Consulting: How is this year shaping up for your firm?
Lyons: We are seeing great success in 2017, and it’s looking like we’ll have another record-breaking year. We’ve launched many eCommerce sites for new clients, and have worked on hundreds of other projects for existing clients. We’ve also sharpened our brand and messages to better reflect who we are and what we stand for. In August, we launched our new website with a fresh design, content and engaging creative. We’re excited to showcase some of the great work we’ve done for clients on our site. In September, Capgemini, one of the world’s largest technology consulting and professional services firms, announced that it is acquiring LYONSCG. We look forward to joining this world-class organization and further expanding our offerings to better serve our clients.
Consulting: How would you describe your firm’s outlook for 2018? Where do you see the most opportunities?
Lyons: We are really excited for what’s to come in 2018. As a Capgemini company, we’ll have access to many more resources that will allow us to scale our business. We have the opportunity to further expand our offerings, grow our team, and expand our global reach. Toward the end of this year, we are moving to a larger office in London to better serve our international clients.
Consulting: What would you say are your firm’s biggest challenges in 2018?
Lyons: Our standards are very high and we aim to hire only the best, and it can certainly be a challenge to find the right talent.
Consulting: What does being named one of Consulting’s Fastest Growing Firms mean to your firm, your employees, and your clients?
Lyons: Being recognized by Consulting Magazine is an honor. I am really proud of our company’s growth because it demonstrates that we are providing valuable solutions to our clients. When our clients are successful, we’re successful, and to me, that’s what this award represents.
