Testimonials

Don’t take our word for it – here’s what those who we have worked with have to say:

Steve was brought into a $2 billion organization to change the organization from a decentralized procurement organization to a Category Management organization. Steve led this transformation to setup the organizational format needed to succeed. In addition, Steve was critical on educating the procurement organization and the Executive Leadership Team on what “true” Category Management does for an organization as well as the benefits moving this direction. Steve was also critical in providing evaluation of current organization as well as staff. Steve was great thought leader for me personally as we went through this transformational change including walking through necessary change management. Lastly, Steve worked to evolve and make positive improvements with our international sourcing program as well as RFP process with key commodity vendors.

Steve Gettleman has a unique and comprehensive understanding of the Industrial Distribution market and its challenges from both a distributor and supplier perspective. It would be hard to find an individual in the Industrial Supply space that possesses the range of experience with private brands and category/product management that Steve has. Steve is a highly strategic thinker who has the ability to see opportunity in a myriad of ways while staying keenly focused on delivering results. These qualities proved to be of great value in our engagement with Steve as he successfully helped us to expand our reach into new supplier relationships and establish our key priorities and strategic direction.

Qosina is a leading global supplier of more than 5,000 OEM single-use components to the medical and pharmaceutical industries. We produce a product catalog that is considered the authoritative resource in our space. Not surprisingly our supply base is among the most important contributors to our success. That being the case, we engaged with Steve at SG Consulting to help us advance the strategic approach we take in managing our suppliers. Steve spent considerable time with Product Department Leadership as well as key members of the ELT and BOD sharing some of the most important elements of successful supplier relationship management. The opportunity to tap into the expertise and insights that comes from Steve’s 20+ years as successful Category Leader for Fortune 1000 companies proved invaluable and continues to pay dividends for our organization.

The engagement required a wide range of skills and talents that included industry insight, strategic planning and execution capabilities, communication expertise, as well as the ability to collaborate effectively with key leaders across our organization…all of which Steve excels at, leading to the successful outcome we desired.

Even with a product concept that has been expertly designed and engineered, the difference between success and failure at launch often comes down to the execution and attention to detail throughout the final stages of development and delivery. Proper execution requires deep knowledge of materials, an ability to identify the best manufacturing partners, and then the management of all of the processes throughout manufacturing.

Jack and the sourcing team at SG Consulting have the experience, people, connections and deep knowledge to help their clients execute and bring successful products to market.

Steve helped guide our company to record sales through thoughtful, strategic leadership. We worked well together because Steve was very transparent and not afraid to hit us between the eyes and tell us what we needed to do better in order to be successful. He also took a long-term, strategic view to growing our business in order for it to be sustainable and mutually beneficial. It worked.
