The Silicon Review
“We provide strategic counsel to private and public organizations and the individual who lead them. We are more than just a consulting firm to our clients, we strive to be a dedicated catalyst for their growth and success.”
While businesses can be perpetual, its owners or management is not. Obstacles and opportunities will present themselves. When this occurs, it’s critical your company has a plan in place that allows for a seamless transition.
In light of the above-mentioned scenario, we’re thrilled to present NMS Consulting, Inc.
NMS Consulting is a global corporate advisory firm providing strategic counsel to private and public organizations and the individuals who lead them. The combination of the firm’s diverse skills, global network, and deep expertise offers clients a unique multi-disciplinary perspective.

It has additional office locations in San Francisco, Washington D.C., New York, London, Dubai and Hong Kong, with plans to open an additional office in India soon.
Trevor M. Saliba, NMS Consulting, Inc. Managing Partner / CEO, spoke exclusively to The Silicon Review. Below is an excerpt.
Q. Why was the company set up? How did you select the services and business structure to serve clients as part of a global platform?
NMS Consulting was formed to fill a void in the global market place where lower middle market firms can gain access to experienced and qualified consulting and advisory services without having to go to large firms, which usually comes with higher fees. In today’s global market place, technology has created not only a flat world but a closely connected world. We are able to work with clients literally in any country, but more importantly service those client relationships in a way that would have normally been prohibitive in the past, either as a result of a need to be face to face and/or an understanding that most work can be done just about anywhere. By taking all of the best attributes of large global law, accounting and consulting firms, we have an ecosystem that provided proven results for small firms of up to 5-50 employees and even much larger firms.
Q. Tell us about the services you provide to clients?
We are a global strategic advisory firm providing professional services to clients spread across three business units: Management Consulting, Corporate Advisory and Strategic Communications.
Q. How successful was your business launch? Share the experience?
We have seen a tremendous positive response from clients since launching, which is good in the sense that there is high new client demand and it allows us to be selective in who we work with, yet bad in that we have to be selective by not taking on too many clients too quickly to ensure our ability to continue delivering the “high touch” of services.
Q. What do you feel are the reasons behind:
Your clients responding positively -- As a service organization, our ability to be flexible and responsive is the key. Moreover, being willing to be accountable, even when it’s difficult is what clients value.
Your growth as an organization -- Fortunately, our people and corporate culture are able to attract like-minded professionals. In addition, as much as there is a void for clients, I feel there is also a void for the professional consultants who are looking for an organization that is more collaborative than adversarial and competitive internally.
Q. What drives/inspires you to excel in your field of business?
At the end of the day, if we have done our job, we have not only helped our client, but we have helped them reach their goals and make them a better organization.
Q. Do you have any new services ready to be rolled out into the market?
While we have core services within our business units, we are quickly identifying the need to expand the services within the units either by scope or sector.
Q. Where do you see your company a couple of years from now?
We expect our business to continue on its strong growth trajectory; to be a much larger industry player.
