“We are excited by the new possibilities this creates in the market for our customers,” said Wes Colwell, Managing Partner of WG Consulting.  “We have been working with Quorum on a range of clients for some time, and realized together that our clients, especially those backed by Private Equity or other outside investment, need tier one business operations at launch if they are to participate in today’s fast moving market.  The recent industry volatility reinforces the need for a best in class business solution that scales quickly and enables companies to operate efficiently and be ready to seize market opportunities as they occur.  By combining our cost effective Backoffice Outsourcing and process innovation capabilities with the Quorum platform, we deliver the most robust solution in the market in a fraction of the time while driving savings in ongoing operations costs.”
