Columbus Consulting LLC

About Us

For over 20 years Columbus Consulting has been helping retailers and consumer products companies achieve their business goals. Unlike other consultants, Columbus was founded as a resource for insiders…. we know your industry, because we were in your industry. Our partners and consultants came from the business and held senior-level positions. These are the same folks who assess, recommend and implement solutions that drive results for every client we work for.

Why Columbus

From design to delivery, Columbus Consulting’s team of We’re different because we are just like you. We know that finding practical solutions to business problems is what companies need. Sure, we can build thick PowerPoint decks and spend hours of time in meetings that leave you with more work, but how does that help you? Our teams work side by side with you and operate as part of your team.

Our story is simple. We are practicing experts. We take pride in our client’s success and that’s it. And, after 20 years, over 300 clients and a network of hundreds of top industry talent, that seems to be working.
