Toffler Associates Continues its Strategic Transformation with Record Breaking Sales in Q3

Toffler Associates announces strong third quarter results in 2015, with record-breaking single quarter sales. Toffler Associates Chief Operating Officer Darin Powers says the company is on track to close calendar year 2015 with a 100% increase in revenue over 2014.

“Our value to organizations is reflected in both client acquisition and revenue.”

“We have a proven track record helping the world’s largest organizations rapidly adapt their organizations to focus on innovation and value creation amidst accelerating change and disruptive market forces. Our team is intellectually powerful, collaborative, and focused sharply on actionable insights and strategies. Our value to organizations is reflected in growth in both client acquisition and revenue. We are heading into 2016 with a funded backlog that equals 2015 revenue and an unfunded backlog that is three times 2015 revenue,” said Powers.

The company’s growth continues to be fueled by helping public and private sector clients understand, plan, and adapt to emerging market disruption with strategic/advisory services, organizational transformation, innovation and agility plans, and risk management services that help to solidify market positions and gain competitive advantage.

Consulting Magazine recently listed Toffler Associates on the top 10 list in 3 areas for its 2015 Best Small Firms to Work For rankings. The rankings are voted on by employees, a fact that Powers says shows the organizational transformation success isn’t all about revenue.

“Our rankings were in the areas of work/life balance, overall compensation and benefits, and how interesting associates find their work on a typical assignment. This tells us employees are invested in and excited about our work for clients, and feel they are well compensated for it, “ said Powers.

The company is actively searching for talent to add to its team of associates and plans to grow 10 percent in Q4 of 2015.

Toffler Associates’ Leaders Selected for Fellowships

RESTON, Virginia – Toffler Associates is pleased to announce the selection of two of its leaders for fellowships for the 2014-2015 season. Senior Associate Eric C. Chase was selected as a 2014-2015 National Security Fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies (FDD), and Director Tyler Sweatt was named an Industry Fellow at The Asymmetric Studies Institute (ASI) at The Johns Hopkins University (JHU). “We couldn’t be more proud to have two members of the Toffler team recognized for their ability to make valuable contributions in their field,” notes Toffler Associates Operations Director Darin Powers. “It’s a tremendous honor – both for Eric and Tyler individually, and for Toffler Associates as a whole.”

The FDD sponsors the National Security Fellows Program (NSFP) for up-and-coming members of the policy community, with the goal of exploring national security issues through a series of expert-moderated discussions. The FDD is a non-profit, non-partisan 501(c)3 policy institute focusing on foreign policy and national security. “Our adversaries are challenging our conventionally oriented institutions with new, innovative, complex threats. As our enemies adapt at an ever-accelerating rate, we too need to evolve our ability to address future threats in an uncertain environment,” observes Chase.  “The members of the NSFP are some of today’s top thinkers in the national security community, and I’m humbled to serve alongside them.”

The Asymmetric Studies Institute, which is partnered with the Department of Military Science at The Johns Hopkins University, is a 501(c)3  non-profit organization dedicated to the advancement of asymmetric research and course instruction to educate future U.S. government leaders to make difficult decisions in light of adversity, ambiguity, and a multitude of information. “The ability to recognize, understand, and leverage trends, correlations, intersections, and other features of complex problems is critical to the development and implementation of cross-industry and often non-standard approaches to today and tomorrow’s toughest challenges,” says Sweatt. “Developing a cadre of young leaders capable of fusing existing and developing innovative methods to addressing these problems is critical for our shared future.”
