Innovative Learning Group has added 12 new clients over the last year, but the value in that news comes from when you take a deep look at the list of customers.
The new customers include the likes of the United Way for Southeastern Michigan
and Ford. The business consultancy’s client list spans a number of different industries, ranging from IT to medical devices to healthcare to pharmaceutical.
“We have always had quite a mix,” says Lisa Toenniges
, CEO of Innovative Learning Group
. “It’s great from a diversification standpoint. It’s also interesting for our consultants. It’s also nice to share things across industries and it’s not a competitive problem.”
That growth has allowed Innovative Learning Group
to hire one person over the last year, a business development executive. It now employs 13 people. The 10-year-old company, which is based in downtown Royal Oak, has been doing more work in mobile strategic projects, such as how best to streamline mobile apps into the everyday work routine of a sales professional.
“How does it integrate into the way they do their jobs?” Toenniges says.
