Former GE executives form Paladin Associates to provide
“Results Driven Consulting”

June 2001

A group of 4 former GE executives, who once formed the management team of Norcross, GA based GE Computer Services in the early 90s, has announced that they have formed a new national management-consulting firm, Paladin Associates, Inc., to be headquartered in Atlanta.

The new firm will specialize in helping clients improve their profitability and market value by enhancing revenues, improving processes and reducing costs.

“The Partners in this firm are determined to differentiate ourselves from so many other consultants we have seen by focusing on the values we shared for many years as GE executives,” said Pat Horgan, Partner. We believe strongly in providing clients with practical and affordable solutions to their business problems, which yield very rapid, measurable results. We also believe in objectivity and the need to find and face reality. We call this “Results Driven Consulting”.

According to Horgan, the new group has broad and deep operational and financial expertise in a variety of industries and companies large and small, including many non-GE companies. “Our people have been C-level executives and successful leaders in most functions and have world-class credentials in Financial Management, Marketing & Sales, Mergers & Acquisitions, Sourcing/Procurement”, he added. “We bring well over a hundred years of cumulative expertise to the table, and many years of excellent management training and success, coupled with a lengthy list of best practices. We call it ‘Experience At Work’, he continued.

We will maintain a low overhead to offer our clients maximum value. Whenever possible we charge only a percentage of what we save or produce. So… if we don’t produce, the client doesn’t pay”, Horgan asserts.
