What happens when work becomes something more? Something that challenges you, inspires you, and enables you to develop your own career equity each day?

The Uncommon Blend at West Monroe conveys the deep technical proficiency and business acumen our consultants bring to help our clients solve their biggest challenges every day. But it’s more than just that, from Seattle to New York and across our offices in between, we believe in creating an environment that allows all of our people to own their career development.

Our award-winning culture is built on the belief that investing in our people and building the next generation of leaders is key to our success. We’re all owners, empowered to make decisions that drive our business, and each other, forward each day. Accepting the challenge means joining an inclusive culture where the best ideas win and everyone shows up for each other each and every day.

We are excited to continue our involvement with West Monroe Partners, and are very appreciative of their support with the Summit.


Factory is an operating company with $250M of investable capital. We acquire meaningful equity stakes in high potential food, beverage and pet health companies. Then we partner with them, using our experience and expertise, deep networks, one-of-a-kind facility and fresh capital to help them innovate and scale.

Factory makes value. We’re in business to make money for our entrepreneur partners and our investors. Factory principals have created over $3B in enterprise value in three CPG companies, and we’re geared up to do it again and again. To quote the CEO of our first investment: “Factory gives a $2M company the resources of a $200M company, and our interests are perfectly aligned.”

Factory has The Factory – a 40,000 sq. ft. purpose-built facility that houses all the resources and expertise needed to innovate and scale-up. Factory’s staff includes experts in sales, distribution, marketing, product development, food science, manufacturing, supply chain, logistics, package engineering, food safety, consumer insights, social media, finance, legal and more. There are lots of places to get money and advice. But only Factory has the hands-on expertise and resources available to entrepreneurs at The Factory.

After opening in Bethlehem in 2018, Factory has been exceptionally supportive of LCG and we hope to maintain our partnership.

Advisory builds a better working world by strengthening industries, improving businesses and by building trust and confidence in the capital markets. Everything we do — every process we help improve, every risk we identify, every interaction with a client or colleague — contributes to making the working world better than it was.

We help them assess and protect their organization, grow revenues, improve processes and innovate their businesses. We do this through a sharp focus on leadership, alignment, execution and adoption.
