In 2008, six colleagues, intent on providing cities, counties and government agencies with highly professional strategic services, decided to combine their experience and skills to form a new consulting firm. The result was Municipal Resource Group, founded on a shared commitment to create for clients innovative and transformational solutions to leadership, governance, human resource, financial management and other complex organizational challenges.

What started out as six consultants grew as the firm affiliated with top retired public-sector executives and leading subject matter experts with decades of experience who wanted to serve organizations in both the public and private sectors. Then, in 2014, Municipal Resource Group made a quantum leap to a full-service professional firm of 27 consultants, as cities and counties recovering from the Great Recession reached out for organizational assistance in strategic planning and assessing the current status of their workforces.

Now, four years later, Municipal Resource Group has just completed a rebranding, changing its name to MRG to reflect the firm’s evolution to include among its more than 250 clients, a broad range of public- and private-sector entities, in addition to municipal agencies. Today, MRG’s more than 60 affiliated consultants offer their clients an ever-broadening range of expertise.

As part of its rebranding, MRG, which currently has offices in Sacramento and Danville, plans to expand its consulting practices into the Los Angeles region, beginning in June. The firm will work with a local partner to provide staffing strategies, coaching for performance and remediation, employee relations and performance management, labor relations, and investigations, among other services.

The rebranding builds on MRG’s track record of success. A relaunched website — www.solutions-mrg.com — new marketing initiatives, and an expanded social media presence mean that consultants will communicate more often, more consistently, more personally, and more powerfully with current and prospective clients.

MRG’s changes begin at the top. Co-founder Mary Egan takes on the role of CEO and majority owner. Co-founder Mike Oliver continues in his role as partner with the title of President.

“Our rebranding enables us to better serve clients, recognizing that we now provide services to many private-sector and public-sector clients, as well as cities,” says Egan. “It also gives us opportunities to expand into new markets, and we’re excited about serving clients in such an important and dynamic region as Los Angeles.”

At the same time, MRG has consolidated its practice areas into a set of seven core services:

  • Leadership Development and Strategic Services
  • Project Management and Organizational Audits
  • Workplace Investigations
  • Training, Coaching and Staff Development
  • Chief Executive Officer Evaluations
  • City Council and Board Governance
  • Financial Management and Fiscal Sustainability
