Operations Diagnostic of Direct Marketing Services Company:  Establishing “One Company” Organization and Operations to Realize Cost Synergies 

Conducted a 5-week operations diagnostic of a recently acquired portfolio company to identify cost reduction opportunities and establish organizational and operations end-visions.
