EVANSTON, Ill., May 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Jeff Gold, managing principal of the business intelligence practice at global sales and marketing consulting firm ZS Associates, was named one of the "Top 25 Consultants" of 2014.
Recipients of the "Top 25 Consultants" award - an accolade given by Consulting magazine each year since 2000 - are selected from hundreds of nominees. Gold was nominated by a senior executive at a multi-billion dollar healthcare company for his commitment to innovation and strategic thought leadership. He'll receive his award at Consulting magazine's recognition dinner at the St. Regis Hotel in New York City on June 19.
"It is a tremendous honor to receive this nomination and be named one of this year's top consultants," said Gold, who has led large-scale business intelligence and sales and marketing improvement initiatives for nearly 100 high-profile companies. "The biggest factor in my success has come from partnering with my clients and other ZSers – some of whom I've worked with for more than 10 years. It's been a lot of fun seeing my colleagues grow their skills and expertise over the years. They are a constant source of ideas, focus and passion.
"I love to collaborate with my clients and colleagues across the globe to achieve our common goal of improving sales and marketing effectiveness and integration through strategy, operations and analytics."
The nominating senior executive has worked with Gold for more than two years and values the partnership they have built.
"When I think about a strategic thought partner who keeps me up-to-date on market trends and helps me push and elevate my group - whether it be through strategies, technologies or processes - I always think of Jeff," said the nominator. "He always helps me see around the corner."
'A Real Strategic Partner'
This senior executive noted that Gold and his ZS colleagues consistently go above and beyond to serve his best interests. This was true in a recent engagement that led to the creation of a more efficient, cost-effective analytics team-a model that has since been repeated for other needs within the company.
"When I'm wrestling with a business issue, I don't hesitate to call Jeff and ask him for his thoughts and perspective," said the senior executive. "Our relationship is not just about services – Jeff is a real strategic partner."
Gold is the fifth ZS principal to be honored with a Top 25 Consultant award since 2006. He joined ZS in 2002 and has been a principal since 2008. He earned a bachelor's degree in economics from the University of Pennsylvania and an MBA from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, where he was recognized as a Palmer Scholar.
