Meet Brian King
In 2004, nine years after beginning his career with Accenture, Brian founded Kenway Consulting with the goal of starting the company for whom he always wanted to work. Brian set out to build a company that operates under the general philosophy that you must always do, under all circumstances, what is right. This philosophy seems simple enough, but when clients are asking you to do something that is not actually in their own best interests, saying “no” to clients and potential clients is what’s right, and that philosophy has been a major differentiator for Kenway ever since its inception.
During Kenway’s early years, Brian successfully managed and led critical enterprise initiatives from the implementations of Enterprise HR solutions, Client Relationship Management (CRM) solutions, Portal Technologies and Case Management Systems to the deployment of enterprise wide Data Governance, Business Intelligence and Master Data Management initiatives. These implementations spanned technologies and industries, from the package to the custom, Telecommunications to Financial Services.
Once Kenway grew to a size warranting full-time executive leadership, Brian turned his energies to “running the business”. In his “spare time”, Brian spends a great deal of energy growing his expertise in the field of Data Management. In doing so, Brian has had the opportunity to work with some of Chicago’s most successful companies to implement data strategies, governance structures and tools that position them to leverage their information as an asset, adding revenues to bottom lines and reducing long-term operating costs. His continued work in data management along with many other Kenway experts in the industry, ensures that Kenway Consulting will be a leader in the field for years to come.
As Kenway has continued to evolve, the basic principles that were integral to the early success of the company remain the same: focus on the overall betterment of employees and clients alike through mutual respect, candor and diplomacy. Embodying these attributes as Kenway’s CEO and as a Kenway spokesperson to our clients, Brian is proud to still run the company for whom he always wanted to work.
