Kurt Salmon Associates buys out Katz Consulting Group

Jun '06
Kurt Salmon Associates (KSA), the premier consulting firm to retailers, consumer products companies, and health care organizations, has announced the acquisition of The Katz Consulting Group, Inc., a Philadelphia-based health care strategic planning consulting firm.

Founded by Gerald Katz in 1991, and led by Principals Katz and Lydia Hammer, The Katz Consulting Group provides strategy consulting services to academic medical centers, community hospitals, children's hospitals, and physician groups.

Jim Berarducci, Managing Director of KSA's Health Care Consulting Group said, “Through the acquisition of The Katz Consulting Group, Inc., KSA accelerates its growth and expansion in health care provider consulting services. The merger is an excellent fit for both firms. Our combined resources will allow us to continue to focus on each unique client through our balance of proven methodologies and experiences from our large and prestigious client base.”

Katz said, “Much of our firm's strategy assignments lead health care providers to facilities and information technology initiatives. Joining with KSA will allow us to provide our clients a synergistic consulting experience.”

Hammer added, “Both firms boast a very high percentage of repeat clients. It's the highest compliment and reward to have our clients retain us repeatedly, and recommend us to others.”

Joining the two firms will expand KSA's health care presence in the northeastern United States, bringing the number of KSA Health Care Consulting Group offices to six. Offices providing health care consulting expertise in the areas of strategy, facilities, and information technology include Atlanta, Madison, Minneapolis, New York, Philadelphia, and San Francisco.

Kurt Salmon Associates (KSA) is the premier global solutions provider focused exclusively on the retail, consumer products, and health care industries. For more than 70 years, KSA has been helping clients achieve significant gains through strategic growth initiatives, superior product performance, and comprehensive enabling technologies.
