Pariveda, a leading management, and technology consulting firm, understands that having a prime location in the largest markets is key to its growth. That’s why, with Toronto moving up to third on the list of North America’s largest tech markets, the company decided it was about time to take the plunge into the Canadian market.

“Toronto has always been on our list,” says Bruce Ballengee, CEO of Pariveda. “One of our company’s goals is to become sustainable in 40 of the largest metropolitan markets in the world. Toronto is an ideal location for any headquarters. It has favourable proximity to other large markets, and it’s cost competitive. What makes Toronto special is its talent. It’s multicultural, supported by a great educational system, and interconnected. I am not surprised that it’s known as a talent magnet for the world.”

A unique approach to problem solving

Founded in 2003 in Dallas, Texas, Pariveda provides strategic consulting, leadership and organizational sciences, and meaningful technology solutions. The company serves clients across the U.S., including Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Seattle and Washington D.C.

In a sea of management consulting firms, Pariveda stands out due to their novel approach to winning new business. “We have a history of offering alternative views,” says Ballengee. “We must be willing to not win the proposal because we offer a disqualifying answer. Where we really shine is situations where a client is not sure what the problem is.”

Grounded by purpose and principles

And it’s Pariveda’s unique corporate culture that underlies its employees’ ability to offer solutions that truly elevate the success of their clients. “We are purpose and principle-driven. That’s what has led us to become such a great place to work,” says Ballengee. “We want our people to stay here for their entire career – which is a different approach from most management consulting firms.” Pariveda has been consistently ranked as one of Glassdoor’s Best Places to Work, while also being citied as a Best-of-the-Best Professional Services organization.

“It’s hard to imagine that just 16 years ago, Pariveda began with two employees with $20,000 in revenue. We now generate approximately $150 million in revenue with over 700 employees. Our move to Toronto will help us write Pariveda’s next chapter.”
