Growth for this young professional services consulting company means adding new jobs and sharing the rewards.

“We have had tremendous growth and with that comes tremendous responsibility to continuously upgrade our performance.

When they crossed the sixtieth client mark at the beginning of 2011, they were named one of the “Top Twelve” service organizations that distinguished themselves as the “Best of the Best” by SPI Research. It was the second straight year they had been included in this elite group. But now, only ten months later, they are serving more than one hundred clients, and bringing onboard two new Senior Business Consultants, Robin Garrison and Stephanie Picardi. Not bad for a company that has only been in operation for four years.

“We’re thrilled having Robin and Stephanie join us,” says Jodi Cicci, President and CEO of TOP Step Consulting. “They both bring an integral element of expertise to our endeavor of serving our clients.”

Stephanie Picardi is known for her abilities of discerning the needs of clients and of exceeding their expectations. She has more than ten years of experience in the field, having worked for a leading provider of project and resource management software.

“I am very excited to work with TOP Step Consulting,” says Picardi, “because the culture of the company is to provide clients with not only a comprehensive solution to enhance and improve their core business process, but also enough initial support and training to be self-sufficient going forward. I enjoy working with clients as a trusted adviser and gaining a deeper understanding of their unique business to provide comprehensive solutions and consulting.”

Robin Garrison joins the TOP Step Consulting team having been successful as a Senior Project Manager and PMO manager for a major international software consulting and solutions organization. His expertise is developing operations from the ground up, which will be integral to TOP Step’s growth.

“The challenge of working with a company that is developing at such an incredible rate is exhilarating,” says Garrison. “TOP Step is a relatively young organization, but their level of proficiency is boundless.”

TOP Step Consulting assists companies with professional services automation by providing expertise in improving professional services business operations. They help other project-based service providers streamline their business operations; better manage their projects and resources, and promote the overall financial health of the organization. Garrison and Picardi have hit the ground running as TOP Step continues to see an increase in demand for their services.

“We have had tremendous growth,” says Jodi Cicci, “and with that comes tremendous responsibility to continuously upgrade our performance. The experience that Stephanie and Robin bring to our organization is a great step forward to our continued success. Our first one hundred clients will appreciate their talents. We look forward to the opportunities 2012 will bring through serving many more clients and the continued growth of our team.”
