MorganFranklin Consulting opens Nashville and Raleigh locations

MorganFranklin Consulting, a McLean, VA-based management consultancy, has opened its sixth and seventh locations in the US with the launch of offices in Nashville, TN and Raleigh, NC.

The new locations join previous offices in New York, Atlanta, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and McLean.

The Nashville location is a logical addition, since the firm’s parent company Vaco is headquartered in “Music City.”

Vaco, a recruitment consulting specialist, acquired MorganFranklin in 2019, adding management consulting to its core strength in talent solutions. Vaco has approximately 1,200 employees across 40+ offices in the US, Canada, and India, and has annual revenues of $700 million.

Since the acquisition, MorganFranklin bolted on the ERP consulting practice of Kraft Enterprise Systems. The firm also sold off its public sector practice to BDO last year to focus on its commercial client roster.
MorganFranklin advises on finance transformation, accounting, and risk; business and technology transformation; cybersecurity; and transactions.

“Even as we seamlessly serve clients remotely amidst the Covid-19 pandemic, our team is fully committed to cementing our presence in the markets and communities we serve,” said Chris Mann, MorganFranklin’s managing partner and chief executive officer.

The consulting firm was founded in 1998 and has more than 400 employees, according to LinkedIn. It works with clients in aerospace & defense, energy, retail, construction, healthcare, life sciences, financial services, private equity, media, and nonprofit.

“The momentum and growth of MorganFranklin since joining the Vaco platform has been so amazing and there are many reasons to be excited about this expansion” said Brian Waller, founder and chief strategy officer of Vaco. “Most importantly, it strengthens our ability to offer MorganFranklin’s expanded services through our long-standing relationships in these two markets allowing us to solve more complex and technical business challenges in partnership with our clients.”
