Michelle Richard Promoted to Vice President

LANSING — Public Sector Consultants (PSC) is pleased to announce that Michelle Richard has earned a promotion to vice president.

Michelle’s outstanding work in education policy has put her at the forefront of issues that affect the lives and development of children, students and talent in Michigan. As vice president, Michelle will continue in this capacity but will also lead the firm’s education practice, where she’ll manage staff, oversee strategic direction and support the company’s growth at the executive level.

Her reputation as a collegial team player, shrewd strategist and passionate education expert has earned her praise and recognition from her peers.

“We are thrilled to have Michelle join the executive team as vice president,” said CEO Jeff Williams. “She has been indispensable to PSC’s success in our education work and will help us continue to provide effective solutions on this important and complicated subject.”

Joining the firm in 2010 as a consultant, Michelle quickly advanced to senior consultant in 2011, where she has led and supported seminal research on improving Michigan’s outcomes in areas like early childhood, special education, K — 12 and higher education.

“PSC is a special place where highly committed, thoughtful people can do their best work to make a difference in people’s lives,” said PSC vice president Jeff Guilfoyle. “Michelle exemplifies that spirit, and our state has been made better by her contributions.”

Michelle’s promotion to vice president is effective as of November 28, 2016.
