Saggezza Named Fastest Growing Firm 2019
Saggezza recently won an award as a Fastest Growing Firm 2019 by Consulting Magazine. CEO Arvind Kapur gave some insight into Saggezza.
Saggezza is a technology and consulting partner that delivers personalized, high-value solutions to accelerate business growth. Since 2006, clients around the world count on the firm to guide them through digital complexities and disruptions. Consulting caught up with CEO Arvind Kapur to discuss the firm’s financial performance.
CONSULTING: What were the main factors that contributed to your firm’s exceptional growth?
KAPUR: There are three primary factors that contributed to Saggezza’s growth. The first factor is our capacity to identify and invest in emerging technological trends and solutions earlier than most of our competitors. This gives us the ability to deliver the highest value to our clients to help them address digital disruption; particularly the value conscious mid-market segment. The second factor is that we truly strive for excellence in everything we do. Whether it is helping our clients create a world-class user experience, fostering and encouraging a data-driven culture for our clients, or validating the importance of digital modernization and retiring legacy systems to our clients. The final contributing factor would be our global presence. Our expansion into the Northeast of England has greatly impacted our growth in 2019.
CONSULTING: How is this year shaping up for your firm?
KAPUR: This year has been an exciting time for Saggezza. In March, we expanded our presence in the Midwest with the acquisition of Omni Resources, a Milwaukee based IT consulting firm. Omni has been in operation since 1984, and as a result, has strong roots in Wisconsin. This acquisition has allowed Saggezza to enter a new market. It has also given us the opportunity to work with a wider range of clientele and industries helping to expand our presence as a leading technology consulting firm.
CONSULTING: How would you describe your firm’s outlook for 2020?
KAPUR: The biggest opportunities we are focusing on in 2020 is enabling our clients to adopt a data-driven culture. In Milwaukee, we recently established a Cloud & Analytics Center of Excellence to provide our clients with every imaginable data resource they could want. We expect to add 50 new members to this team in 2020.
CONSULTING: What would you say are your firm’s biggest challenges in 2020?
KAPUR: With growth, there are always obstacles that arise, and making sure it is properly managed is paramount. Having the capacity to hire at the same rate that we are growing is vital, but ensuring that we are hiring smart and talented people is even more important. With that, we are focused on diligently supporting a culture of continuous learning as we continue to grow. At Saggezza, training and development has always been viewed as a top priority.
CONSULTING: What does being named a Fastest Growing Firm mean to your firm, employees and clients?
KAPUR: Winning this award is an honor, and it is gratifying to be recognized by our peers. For our employees, it serves as recognition for all of their efforts and everything they have done to make us successful. For our current and prospective clients, it provides them with validation that Saggezza lives up to its promise of being a proven and trusted technology partner.
