about the SpadaforClay Group

In the rapidly evolving business environment, many corporations – large and small, public and private, for-profit and not-for-profit – are facing common business challenges. Some of these challenges include setting a strategic direction for agility and flexibility; aligning board members to focus on achieving measurable results; completing and integrating mergers and acquisitions; and improving performance in light of increased competition in the marketplace.

These are typical challenges faced by SpadaforClay clients – and why for more than 10 years both new and many repeat clients have engaged the firm. CEO Christine Spadafor leads customized programs to deconstruct complexity and work side-by-side with C-suite executives to develop practical, results-driven solutions. Clients have experienced increased revenues through the execution of designed growth strategies; increased effectiveness through more efficient processes; and increased board performance through the adoption of governance best practices and a focus on achieving business results.

a different kind of consulting firm

SpadaforClay is different than many other management consulting firms. Led by Christine Spadafor, she provides personalized services while bringing significant expertise gained as a partner in three international management consulting firms and experience as a C-suite executive. Christine Spadafor has “been in the shoes” of her clients, has been responsible for meeting payroll, and so well understands their challenges and what keeps them awake at night. So the programs she designs in partnership with her clients are designed to prioritize the most immediate issues, develop practical solutions and implement them to achieve targeted business results.

SpadaforClay Group History

In 2004, I established SpadaforClay Group in response to requests for consulting services from clients with real business issues. Their annual revenues ranged from $20M to $700M – in general revenues too small to afford most of the major management consulting firms. So many requests were received – from repeat clients as well as new clients who heard of my work only through word of mouth – that we saw an opportunity to provide partner-level management consulting services to middle-market clients at a competitive price point.

SpadaforClay Clients

For the past 12 years, SpadaforClay has had the privilege to work with impressive and forward-looking clients. Some examples include: developing a global strategy for an international French perfume company; designing global solutions for improved operations at two Fortune 100 entertainment and media companies; assisting a social services provider grow from $56M to more than $125M through execution of a strategic growth strategy; aligning board members to improve corporate performance; and partner with medical professionals to transform the practices to meet new health care industry requirements.
