“The increasing attractiveness of government clients, along with promise of new investment (such as infrastructure) are attracting new companies, in turn increasing the sector’s competitive intensity. Whether a firm is new to the government market, seeking to expand or an established player, there are often opportunities to accelerate growth,” said Harrington.

To that end, Pathfinder Consulting Group offers services including: go to market public sector strategy (e.g. prioritizing markets, building/improving business development, market and competitive intelligence, capture and proposal management capabilities); and go to market operating model development (e.g. designing the optimal organization; hiring the ideal talent; building the enabling infrastructure to support a robust growth strategy).

Harrington brings 30 years of experience that include leading diverse global teams in multiple market contexts. Prior to launching Pathfinder, Harrington was a partner at McKinsey & Company, based in Washington, DC.
