In 2005, we set out on a mission to change peoples’ lives by transforming middle market companies in Cincinnati.  Thirteen years later, we’ve brought that mission to middle Tennessee, bringing our A+ team to one of the nation’s most exciting and challenging markets. Music City has some of the most forward-thinking and growth-oriented minds in the world, and we are here in Nashville consulting and moving their businesses from good, to better, to unbeatable.

We love solving problems – especially the problems you struggle with most. If you’ve tried hiring, firing, spending, cutting, optimizing, re-engineering, flame-throwing, outsourcing, or ignoring, and the problem is still blocking your success…we’re the team you need.

We’ve helped hundreds of clients solve “don’t mess this up” kind of problems for more than 13 years.

Growing too fast? Too much chaos to deal with? We can help.
Growing too slow? Need to generate bigger results? We can help.
In transition? Merging? Changing owners? Selling off a part? We can help.
Need to optimize for profitability or sale? We can help.

We’re at our best when the going is tough.

We’re not about quick wins or moving the fastest. We’re about moving the farthest. And about creating lasting change. Transformation. From the inside out. Together.

Exciting, right?

Let’s get going.

We’re passionate and performance-driven. We love solving problems, and delivering results. We tell it like it is, work to make complicated things simple, and always put people first. We zig when others zag, and we don’t stop until you are satisfied. We’re all in, on every project, every day, just like you.

How We Work

We begin with you – meeting you where you are and building a plan for your success from there. We work to understand your goals, then we get to work – with you – to make change happen.  And, we stick around long enough to make sure it lasts…but not so long that we start drawing a pension.

Our Promise

If you don’t love the results we deliver, we will keep working until you do.

Simple. And exactly the way it should be.


Get these right and you’ll achieve your goals. Miss them and no level of superior leadership or super-human effort will right your ship.


The foundation of your success. Motivated and engaged team members burn through even the toughest projects, reach their goals and accelerate your success. The wrong people deliver the opposite. We work with you to ensure you have the right people in the right places with the right skills.


The best people running broken processes deliver mediocre results. You need the best people running the best processes to achieve superior results every time. We work with you to map your current processes, identify opportunities, and close the gaps between where you are today and your best performance.


Leadership is impossible without key metrics to guide feedback and fuel continual improvement. We help you identify the best metrics to monitor so you can predict success instead of simply hoping for it.

People + Processes + Metrics = Lasting Transformation

Need a Nashville consulting company? This is our simple formula for delivering lasting transformations. If you’re ready to realize different results, we’re ready to work with you to change the lives of your people and transform your business.

  • CFO
  • $250MM Manufacturing Company




Rather than spending years of your own time and hundreds of thousands of dollars training your team to become experts in challenges irrelevant to their job description, we provide that extra bench strength or manpower to push you to the next level.


Meet Jack Johnson…

Director, Greater Nashville

Q: What do you love about working with mid-market business leaders?

A: With so much growth and an increasingly fast-paced world, it’s tough to keep up with everything needed to become unbeatable. I’m addicted to partnering with mid-market leaders to identify solutions to your most pressing needs. We help leaders regain control over their growth and deliver results that don’t seem possible today.

Q: What do you like to do in Nashville?

A: In my free time you can always find me at a live concert, a new restaurant, or a Titans or Predators game. I’m especially excited that Nashville is hosting March Madness this year.

Powerful Insights. Powerful Results.

Meet The AMEND Analytics A-Team


We’ve spent the last ten years building the region’s best business intelligence and analytics teams. Our team members left or declined jobs at Google, Apple, the NSA, McKinsey, P&G, Deloitte and more to work for you. They don’t care to help giant companies become GIANTER.


They want to help you – the real growers of the economy – the job creators, the blood-sweat-and-tearers, the next generationers doing remarkable things you never imagined possible.


That’s why all our team members are highly skilled analysts AND with real-world business leadership experience. They know how to translate your data into the information you need because they’ve walked in your shoes and alongside other leaders using similar solutions to drive their businesses forward.



“AMEND brought more talent to our challenge than any other company we reviewed for this work. We knew right away there was no one better qualified to help us and they didn’t disappoint.”

  • CFO, Gorilla Glue


Leaders like Jeff – like you – are fighting daily battles you should no longer be fighting. Jeff was dealing with more than 350 pages of reports every month. Beyond the paper stack, he was fighting with his team members over the accuracy of the information on those pages. Worst of all, they were fighting over OLD information that was revealing less and less about how to steer the business moving forward. The intelligence they needed was buried…unusable.

Data and information can transform your thinking when it’s turned into actionable intelligence. That’s our specialty – turning information into action.

We take the endless data that exists in your business and bring it to life so you can use it to make better decisions, faster. 

Updates and reporting become quick and easy. Alignment increases. More team members become empowered to make decisions, discover competitive advantages, and grow your business.

“We are beyond THRILLED with the results. We didn’t ask for anything like this because WE DIDN’T KNOW ANYTHING LIKE THIS WAS POSSIBLE. Now that we have it, there’s no going back.”
