As a consultant, I spend some time reading about other consultants. It is important to me to know who else is out there and what services they perform. I am noticing that consultants have become very niche in their markets. For example, I was looking at Rusty Solomon. He is a management consultant that specializes in the mortgage and title insurance industry. This is a tough specialty market to work with. I have a good amount of experience working in the real estate and mortgage industry and I would not want to go back to this. It has a lot of rules. Also, it is one of those businesses that can get very big, very fast. Often too big, too fast.
This is when a company needs someone like Rusty Solomon. He is the Chief Executive Officer of the Mandrien Consulting Group. He has worked in the industry for quite a while, having served as the national managing director for Linear Title and Closing. There is also a benefit to being community based. That is why he has served on the Board of Directors for the Anti-Defamation League, and has being involved with Save the Children, American Cancer Society, and Cancer Crusaders.
