Current Opportunities

Principal – Stack’d Consulting Inc.

THE ORGANIZATION

Stack’d Consulting Inc. (“Stack’d”), is a management consulting firm headquartered in Calgary.

Stack’d was officially established in 2015 as a result of the separation of the Alberta consulting practice from Conroy Ross Partners. However, the roots of the firm date back to 2002, and the practice has had a long history of serving North American clients in both the private and public sectors. Their success is a function of uncompromising quality in the team they are building and the services they deliver.

Stack’d exists to make a meaningful difference to their clients by helping them achieve their full potential. They do so by analyzing their client’s key business issues and opportunities and aligning leadership teams on purposeful action. This enables clear, strategic decision-making which defines the organization’s long-term success and sustainability. Stack’d is tenacious about excelling at their craft, so that clients receive undeniable value. When clients are challenged with complex issues or opportunities, Stack’d believes that by combining strengths, they can stack the deck, and “deliver amazing”.

The services that they provide where they “deliver amazing” include:

  • Strategy and Business Planning;
  • Organizational Governance;
  • Business Evaluation and Transformation; and,
  • Post-Merger Integration.

The values of Stack’d define who they are, how they behave, and what to expect when you work with Stack’d. The Stack’d teams lives and breathes these values every day:

  • Deliver Amazing. They have a passion for excellence and are driven to make an impact on their clients, communities and teammates;
  • Be Great, Not Good. As individuals, they are humble but realize that excellence is a habit, and that there are always ways to be better, as complacency is not an option;
  • Insatiable Curiosity. They seek to understand, knowing that why is often more important than what;
  • Don’t Be Afraid. They are willing to challenge status quo, try something new even if it might result in failure, and to say what they think even if it is controversial;
  • One Team. They never give up and know how to win and lose as a team; and,
  • Serious Fun. They don’t take themselves too seriously. They work hard, play hard but most importantly, they are a little odd and that is ok!

Knowing all of this, why join Stack’d?

  • Work directly with executives and senior leaders in leading organizations in Canada and the United States;
  • Establish your own niche within the firm by developing your client network and service expertise;
  • Strengthen your expertise as a member of an exceptional team that mentors one another to deliver high quality client outcomes;
  • Be part of a collegial and supportive work environment characterized by integrity and respect;
  • Work in an entrepreneurial culture that rewards initiative and results; and,
  • Have a meaningful impact building and developing a firm that is growing rapidly, and having fun doing it!
