About Insight Sourcing Group


Elite team, exclusive focus

Founded in 2002, Insight Sourcing Group is a consulting firm that focuses exclusively on strategic sourcing and procurement. Led by alumni of some of the world's top consulting firms, including the likes of Accenture, Deloitte and McKinsey, Insight Sourcing Group is privately held and has been growing at a rapid clip ever since its founding. 

Around half of the firm's clients are in the Private Equity industry, where Insight Sourcing Group has developed something of a reputation for its ability to improve valuations. The rest of the firm's clients meanwhile, are less easy to categorize: they are comprised of everything from mid-sized to large organizations (including Fortune 500 members), across a wide swathe of industries. Those industries include everything from commercial services, retail and medical supplies to manufacturing, financial services and aerospace.


What do they do?

Insight Sourcing Group's website points out that, while its client base is incredibly diverse, its "core skills are 'portable' across industry lines, meaning that clients tend to have similar needs when engaging the firm-the need to improve their sourcing and procurement performance, whether by cutting costs, seeking guidance in a new area, or building the expertise in the first place. 

A typical project will see the firm involved in transforming a company's cost optimization and procurement-related programs. Insight Sourcing Group works on such projects from development to execution, often on a global basis.


Global Partnership

The firm's global reach is greatly expanded by a partnership with Germany-based pricing, procurement and supply-chain experts Kerkhoff Consulting. The tie-up allows Insight Sourcing's clients to have access to "low cost country-specific sourcing expertise throughout the world for U.S.-based companies, and sourcing and procurement services for the U.S. Operations of European-based companies. Additionally, Kerkhoff's European clients gain access to Insight Sourcing Group's proprietary spend analysis program, SpendHQ.
