Executive Alliance Celebrating the 25th Anniversary in 2017!

Reflecting on 25 Years

“We would be lost without EA. Your dedication, diligence, and demeanor are unprecedented in my experience, and if we are successful, it will be largely to your credit.”  Senior Director of Risk, $2b manufacturing firm with 6,200 employees.

Founded in 1992, Executive Alliance is the longest, continuously operating, independent provider of HCM management consulting services in the country.  The success of Executive Alliance is in our in-depth functional and technical knowledge while focusing on Human Resources and Payroll in the context of people, process, and technology. This approach has helped us build a reputation for completing superior in-depth, fact-based consulting assignments by utilizing proprietary tools and industry-specific knowledge base.

EA has its origins from Data General (now part of EMC Corporation) where the founders met in the late 70’s and early 80’s. The founders were Donald Bateman, Joseph Rich and Kevin Mallett. The concept was to build a consulting organization offering the highest levels of expertise available to client companies in the disciplines of Executive Search, Compensation, Benefits and Human Resource/Payroll Information Systems.  Later, we added a practice providing Labor and Employment Law and Labor and Employee Relations consulting.

In order to provide a unique market differentiation we positioned ourselves as a firm that offered integrated services across these disciplines. EA was officially launched March 30, 1992.  In the first year we had signed over 50 clients and grew rapidly adding hundreds more throughout the 90’s.

In the late 90’s as the marketplace changed EA went through a repositioning by discontinuing Executive Search and sold the Employment Labor Law practice to its principal Richard Gaucher.  It still operates today as Gaucher Associates, Inc.  In 2001 the compensation practice led by Joe Rich was sold to Clark Bardes, Inc. and now operates at Pearl Myer and Partners.

Since March of 2001 Executive Alliance has focused solely Human Resource/Payroll Information Systems (Human Capital Management Systems) however we also provide significant consulting services in other areas of Information Management.   In total, EA has served over 300 clients globally, noting over 25 countries in which we have led payroll implementations.

EA consultants have an average of 11 years tenure with the company. The corporate office is located in Marlborough, Massachusetts and consultants by and large work remotely with home offices in Ohio, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Florida.  The combined direct experience amounts to over 250 years.

“Thank you for your hard work marshalling us through the project. We could never have done it without you. You have been wonderful to work with- you made the project fun and digestible in small bites.”  Director of Physician Recruitment, Health Care organization with 6,800 employees.
