Remembering Robin


This week our team came together to remember Robin Carpenter, who put as much energy into the people around her as she did into her own impressive career. The strong turnout from alumni, even on short notice, was particularly touching. Robin was a source of encouragement, actionable advice, and the occasional practical joke for dozens of consultants who have called Evantage home. As her remembrance in the Star Tribune said, “Robin was a gifted mentor to many, helping to inspire and propel leaders everywhere she went.”

A commemorative celebration will be held on Saturday, April 25, at the Woman’s Club of Minneapolis (410 Oak Grove St., 55403): visitation starting at 3:00, celebration at 4:00, social thereafter. Memorials preferred to one of Robin’s favorite non-profits: the Minnesota Opera, the University of Minnesota Veterinary Hospital, or the Golden Valley Humane Society.

Help us double down on service delivery

Service delivery—doing our work well—is kind of a thing for us. Most of Evantage’s business comes from repeat customers, which makes us pretty happy and means we have great client relationships, old and new.

This emphasis on quality is why we’re looking for a service delivery lead. We’re looking for a veteran business consultant with deep experience working with big, complex client organizations on big, complex interdisciplinary projects. The service delivery lead will head longer-term client engagements, cultivate trust relationships, and ensure that we’re consistently exceeding expectations. There’s more to it than that, of course; if this sounds like what you do, we’d love to meet you.
