After years as a road-warrior with a “Big” management consulting firm, Michael Mann decided there had to be a better way. A way to prosper in the world of consulting—which he loved—and achieve a more balanced lifestyle.
In 2006, Mike launched VWC. The new company was based on the premise that exceptional consultants wanted and deserved greater autonomy—an ability to direct their own lives—without sacrificing career-building consulting engagements.
VWC intended to be different—no pyramid scheme of a few partners supported by a few more senior managers propped up by legions of young, inexperienced consultants. VWC wasn’t interested in training people on the client’s time or turning clients into guinea pigs for the latest management consulting gimmick.
Instead, VWC consultants would work and live in the same communities with our clients. We would hire only the best consultants with years of practical experience. We would have a flat organization structure enabling clients to drive greater value from their management consulting spend.
Our clients are quietly benefiting from our expertise, immediacy, and pragmatism as we partner with them in management and technology solutions.
