HCG was formed by a group of business professionals who collectively have provided business analytical and consulting services to thousands of clients and have been involved in building some of the fastest growing analytical, management consulting and strategic tax planning companies in business today. In coming together to form HCG, these highly experienced and qualified individuals decided that they wanted to build the premier consulting company for the owners of small and medium-size businesses. In forming HCG, these professionals have committed themselves and HCG to a standard of quality in the delivery of business analytical and consulting services never before seen in this marketplace. The core group of HCG has been working together for over 11 years and many have been working in consulting-related fields for over 20 years.
No company has a more experienced staff than HCG in providing quality analytical, consulting and strategic tax planning services to the owners of small and medium-size businesses. The average number of comprehensive onsite business analyses performed by the core group of HCG senior business analysts is over 700. The minimum allowable number to work with the HCG team is 400 comprehensive onsite analyses. In addition, every year each of HCG's senior business analysts provide analytical services to 50 or more businesses to provide each of HCG's clients a broad range of knowledge which comes from the vast experience offered by each of its senior business analysts. There is no staff of analysts anywhere in North America who have more experience over the course of a year than the HCG senior business analysts.
The same can be said for its staff of management consultants and tax professionals.
