Thought Logic Consulting opens Richmond office
Thought Logic Consulting, an Atlanta-based firm, is expanding with a new office in downtown Richmond. The company announced the opening Wednesday of the office at 13 S. 13th St., in the recently renovated Powers-Taylor building.
The opening coincides with the firm’s second anniversary on June 2. It expects to bring more than 100 jobs to the area.
“We provide business transformation, project leadership, change leadership and analytics services, much like the Big Four, but in a local model,” Richmond Managing Partner Jeff Deyerle said in a statement. “We’ll be hiring a number of experienced people over the summer, with the expectation that over the next three to five years, we’ll bring more than 100 jobs to the area.”
The opening of the Richmond office marks Deyerle’s return to Virginia. He grew up in Roanoke and earned undergraduate and graduate degrees from the University of Virginia.
Deyerle joins Thought Logic from Slalom Consulting, where he helped launch and grow that firm’s New York office to more than 225 consultants over a five-year period.
When Thought Logic evaluated communities for its first expansion, Richmond quickly rose to the top of its list. Keith Roberts, the company’s CEO and managing partner in Atlanta, said, “The presence of market leading companies, the diverse industry base, the city’s support for entrepreneurship, a highly educated workforce, and a solid appreciation for work-life balance were all significant factors.”
Thought Logic’s clients include Coke, GE Power, McKesson and Cox Communications. The consulting firm said it also can work with smaller companies and start-ups. It currently employs 40 people in Atlanta.
“Our consultants work on-site for local clients, so it’s a unique model. They get to see their families and take full advantage of everything living in Richmond has to offer. And it’s ideal for clients,” said Deyerle, who explained that travel expenses can total $200,000 for a $1 million project.
