What we do

How Umbrex serves our clients

Umbrex is the fastest, most reliable way to find the right independent management consultant for your project needs.

Our consultants are all alums of top tier consulting firms. The majority also have industry experience.

We offer global coverage, with consultants in over fifty countries.

We provide flexible solutions tailored to your needs:

  • Part-time or full-time
  • On-site or remote
  • Single consultant or a team
  • Any seniority, from analyst to partner

Our clients range from Fortune 500 firms to privately-owned companies. We also serve consulting firms that need to augment their teams with an external resource.

The expertise of our consultants covers a broad range of services and industries.

To get started, tell us about your project needs. We’ll schedule a short call to make sure we understand the full context, ideal profile, and objectives.

Then we’ll send you bios of vetted consultants who are a good fit for your project, typically within 24-48 hours.

You decide whom you’d like to interview, and we’ll introduce you.

If you decide to engage one of the consultants we’ve introduced, you contract the support through Umbrex.

We understand that needs can evolve, so you’re never locked in. You can end a project early with no penalty.

In 2008, Will Bachman left McKinsey to start his own independent consulting practice. While he enjoyed the autonomy, he missed the experience of sharing lessons learned and collaborating with other consultants.

Inspired by Seth Godin’s book Tribes: We Need You to Lead Us , Bachman began connecting with other independent management consultants and organizing professional development events.

In 2015, Will Bachman, Jing Liang, and Margarita Soto founded Umbrex to provide this growing community with a name, an infrastructure, and a core staff.
