Creation of Advisory Boards and Distribution Channels
DCG has collaborated with a number of corporate clients to utilize DCG's breadth of relationships with world-class CEO level and other "C-level" executives to create corporate Advisory Boards. These Advisory Boards not only are useful in providing guidance in key areas to growing companies, but enable companies to dramatically reduce time-to-market by capitalizing on the long-standing relationships these Advisory Board members have in the commercial marketplace. These Advisory Board members help an enterprise create what many growing companies need most -- a viable distribution channel to the marketplace. In this way, clients can accelerate time-to-market and, more importantly, take advantage of DCG's long-established relationships in locating the most successful targets for its products and services.
One particularly successful such arrangement - established through DCG's Atlanta Office - involved establishing a 20-person Board of Advisors which produced an effective distribution channel for Private Professional LLC, a provider of outsourced HR solutions. These activities enabled Private Professionals to get to the marketplace months ahead of a normal sales and marketing program, providing the company with substantial revenues and cash flows.
