June 8, 2016

Toronto, ON – A new team of talented MBA students has begun to provide premium consulting services at competitive rates with Impact Consulting Group at the University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management. The team is already working with clients in a wide range of industries from corporate governance to technology services.

Since 1972, Impact Consulting Group has been providing innovative and customized consulting services to clients. Each year, a new team of five Rotman MBA students is selected to lead the Impact Consulting Group, based on their entrepreneurial abilities, work experience, and problem-solving skills.

The 2016-17 Impact Principals are Ramon Ashirayangkura, Lyndon Dai, Alison Hyodo, Alex Walker Turner, and Lisha Xu. Together, they share a diversity of experience in consulting, marketing, finance, accounting, and entrepreneurship, and bring an international perspective to bear on tough business challenges, having collectively lived and worked across North and South America (including the Canadian Arctic), Asia, and Western Europe. The team combines their professional experience with their MBA knowledge to provide expert consulting services in market research, business plan development, financial modelling, market entry strategies, and performance improvement, and more.

The Impact team receives training and support from their strong network of Impact alumni and their Board of Directors — which is composed of industry professionals with a wide range of expertise. Impact also has access to world class Rotman professors and some of the world’s greatest business minds, who add incredible value to Impact’s client engagements.
