Chris Holman interviews Peter Pratt, president of Public Sector Consultants. In this role, and as an owner of the firm, he oversees strategy and human resources.
Public Sector Consultants (PSC) has the great honor of announcing a new addition to their family. Kuntzsch Solutions is joining forces with the firm effective October 13, 2016.
“This is a marriage that just makes sense,” says PSC President, Peter Pratt. “We’ve admired Kuntzsch Solutions’ work for years as colleagues and partners and, at times, even competitors‐it’s rare to find two organizations with similar passions, skills, and commitment to excellence that fit together this well, but it’s happened here.”
By joining forces, PSC acquires a wealth of talent in the area of community and economic development, bringing expanded depth to the trusted policy expertise clients have come to expect. PSC welcomes the entire Kuntzsch Solutions staff; founders Rachel and David Kuntzsch are joining the PSC ownership team.
Over Kuntzsch Solutions’ 12‐year history, the company has served Michigan organizations and communities using a host of service offerings from planning to funding development to communications. PSC is well known for its work in health, energy, environmental, public finance, and education policy. The merging of the companies will expand on these disciplines, allowing existing clients access to a greater pool of resources to tackle the largest, most interconnected issues facing the state.
“We are delighted to join forces with a team of likeminded individuals at PSC, which is a tremendous win not only for us and our clients, it’s a win for the people we all serve‐the residents of Michigan and beyond,” says Rachel Kuntzsch. “This is a case of one plus one equals three.”
Clients of both firms can expect a smooth transition, as all staff from both companies are being retained in the merger, resulting in a nearly 50‐person firm at Public Sector Consultants. Friends, clients, and partners can reach their typical point of contact at any time for more information about the merger.
