We founded EDC on the belief that experience, pragmatism and caring should be the bedrock of our firm.  As experts in the field with over twenty years of experience, we wanted to create a place where we could do the best work of our lives with people we like and respect.


We are committed to practicing what we teach our clients - that hard work, collaboration, humility, compassion and openness to change are what differentiate strong performance. We strive to live these values in everything we do.


All of us at EDC have worked with CEOs, executive teams, and boards of Fortune 500 companies. Many of us have built and led businesses, giving us first hand experience with the challenges our clients face. Clients tell us that they choose to work with us because we are credible without being arrogant or rigid.


Our goal is to create value in every interaction with our clients - but, we know that just because we are experts doesn’t mean we have all the answers. It does mean we know how to help you find them.

           I choose to work with the people of EDC because of the relationship we have developed. I have recommended them to others and the feedback is always stellar. With their experience and pedigree - they all do outstanding work - they are easy to work with, easy to recommend.
