OUR STORY

Avenai (ah-ven-eye)

In 2012, four well-seasoned professionals decided to create a new, nimble and value-driven consulting firm. With decades of combined experience in business operations and management consulting, the four founding partners had gained a significant amount of knowledge in what a successful consulting company would comprise. They decided to create a consulting services firm that focused on all of the positives and factors that worked well. The goal was to build a unique organization with the right capabilities to deliver success to all of its clients. They named this organization, Avenai.

Today, Avenai is rapidly growing. Hiring the right professionals with the proper skill set and similar values has allowed for consistent growth. The vision and values that were fundamental building blocks of Avenai are still prominently displayed throughout the company. Strong leadership, close collaboration and always putting our clients first will continuously be key factors in ensuring the success of Avenai.
