Gray Reed Launches Gray Reed Advisory Services

Gray Reed is pleased to announce the launch of Gray Reed Advisory Services, a new business consultancy for companies of all sizes.  A subsidiary of Gray Reed, Gray Reed Advisory Services specializes in helping companies optimize their business, specifically in the areas of strategy, operations, marketing and technology, to maximize performance and drive growth.

“Through our close working relationships with thousands of companies of all sizes over the years, we have uncovered gaps between what our legal services can provide and the additional business advisory services some of our clients need,” Gray Reed Managing Partner Cary Gray says.  “When some companies outgrow their business models, they’re unsure how to move forward.  We created Gray Reed Advisory Services to help these companies solve their core problems and elevate their business to the next level.”

Gray Reed Advisory Services is led by skilled problem solvers with decades of collective C-suite experience, including President Mark Gargiulo, who spent over 20 years as a partner at Accenture. 

“We look forward to working with companies as they navigate various business challenges,” Gargiulo says. “They may have reached a critical growth point – either they are finding new challenges to top line growth, or they have outgrown their organizational structure and business processes. We have the collective experience and knowledge to help solve complex problems and provide measurable results.” 

Gray Reed Advisory Services gives companies unique access to the strategic advisory capabilities of large consultancies with the personal service and accessibility of a boutique firm. The Advisory team leverages deep experience to develop custom solutions based on what clients need to accelerate growth and unlock the full potential of their business.
