About Point B

Point B, Inc. is 100% employee-owned, and helps organizations "form, execute, and thrive." The firm's capabilities include management consulting, venture investment and advisory and property development; these integrated businesses currently serve organizations and communities in ten U.S. markets.

The firm was founded in 1995 by three consulting veterans who were looking to create a place where top consulting talent could make a difference and achieve great things--both personally and for clients--without having to sacrifice their quality of life. While most consulting firms offer plane tickets and hotel stays, for the past 22 years, Point B has promoted wrapping work around life, rather than the other way around--an approach that is now starting to catch on elsewhere in the industry.

In 2014, Point B's founders transitioned the firm from 20% employee-ownership to 100% employee-ownership (ESOP), selling their 80% interest back to the firm. Representing the biggest cultural milestone in its 22-year history, the firm credits this transition with ensuring that the purpose, mission and values of Point B will endure for the long-term, in addition to providing significant tax advantages for the firm, and giving its people a great opportunity for personal retirement wealth building.

As owners, Point B associates have a unique personal investment in the firm, meaning they own results and outcomes. They take an ownership mentality at any given moment, and relentlessly pursue success that will lead to long-term performance of the firm.
