CHARLOTTE, N.C., Oct. 10, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Slalom, the purpose-driven consulting firm that helps companies solve business problems and build for the future, today announced the opening of its newest office in Charlotte, North Carolina. 

The Charlotte team will be led by general manager Kelly Adkisson, who has spent the last 16 years holding key leadership roles in Accenture's financial services practices. She has spent her career focused on strategy and advisory services and has worked with most of the large banks—and many regional ones—in North America. She’s passionate about delivering meaningful results for her clients' most strategic challenges. 

“In addition to being one of the top three banking hubs in the U.S., Charlotte has a wide range of industries, including manufacturing, healthcare, utilities, and consumer services, which is a perfect fit for Slalom’s breadth of expertise,” says Adkisson. “We’re looking forward to collaborating with clients across a diverse set of industries, and making an impact on our local community in Charlotte.” 

Slalom Charlotte will help local companies reach their biggest goals through strategy, data and analytics, organizational effectiveness, experience design, and technology.

Slalom is also launching a Slalom Build Center in Charlotte. Slalom Build Centers are locally based engineering hubs where teams rapidly create modern technology products alongside clients.

“Slalom Build is a key differentiator for Slalom, and I’m excited to introduce it to our Charlotte-based clients,” says Adkisson.
