Management Consulting

Consulting Built on Character

Citygate is Cause-Driven, not Profit-Driven.

Our firm is comprised of senior public sector executives who long ago dedicated themselves to the public service. That continues to be the firm’s motivation. We have found that when we dedicate ourselves to the qualitative excellence of client service, the finances of the business take care of themselves. And when we focus too much on the business’ finances, quality suffers. So what then, would be the threshold of testing whether we have set our sights primarily on qualitative rather than quantitative factors? When we put the interests of our clients above our own business interests.

It sounds simple, yet it is an entirely unconventional strategy in the present environment of free market enterprise.

Trustworthy experience

Over 500 engagements successfully completed for public sector, private sector, and non-profit clients.

More than 25 years

Citygate Associates, LLC has been in business for over 25 years.

Sole Source

70% of our engagements are sole source or repeat business.

Our aspiration is that character is the leading distinguishing aspect of Citygate.

Character defines who we are, our attitudes, how we interact with others, and how we deliver service. We are reminded daily that quantitative factors (such as the number of projects sold and monthly revenues) are the by-product, rather than the focus and motivation, of the business. We will continue to be cause-driven rather than profit-driven, not only because it satisfies our idealism about continually improving the public sector, but because it is a proven method of business.
