During these recent volatile times, Merrick continuously builds its presence in the markets it serves, while testing new initiatives to take the firm to the next level and position for the future. Much of the fuel that drives Merrick’s growth lies in the following:
Highly strategic long-term planning with annual programs that integrate into the firm’s long term 2020 vision
Zero to minimum debt, even during the great recession
Continual monitoring of performance metrics and implementation of adjustments to keep the firm on course
Use of a strategic initiative program to identify new opportunities and test drive those possible opportunities prior to full financial investment
Employee ownership since the firm’s inception meaning employees have some “skin in the game”
Involvement in diverse markets to balance out market risk
In a market that has been particularly hard on professional services, Merrick continues to thrive. The firm has been able to balance out extreme swings in revenues through a strategic placement of the firm in a diverse range of high demand and well-funded markets that allows Merrick to maintain a strong, yet steady momentum towards its 2020 vision.
