Five Consultants Choose their Own Destiny.

CCG started with five consultants, all with Big-Five consulting experience, who bonded while working together on a project for Arthur Anderson. The Enron scandal presented these men with a choice--fold into the acquiring firm of KPMG or risk their careers and take control of their own destiny. Their decision created CCG.

A Client-Centered Philosophy Built on Trust.

Even before CCG owned a door to hang a sign on, the founders set out to create true partnerships with clients. The strong relationships created at Arthur Anderson allowed CCG to thrive for years on referrals alone. Our focus at this time was to deliver successful outcomes to our large corporate clients.

A Time to Grow. A Time to Build.

At this time we picked up a few key clients, hired on more employees and opened our first office in Tampa. CCG quickly went from being a group of five guys into a stable, vendor agnostic organization.
