ABOUT US

Founded in 2015, ALTA Consulting is a boutique management consulting firm that helps companies engineer revenue and reach their potential. We specialize in working with companies in Technology and Professional Services verticals that need assistance with strategy and are looking to grow sales and marketing capabilities.

Hi there … I’m Gord Smith and I’m the Founder of ALTA Consulting.  Let me start the ALTA story by telling you where I am today: I’m on a mission to help small and mid-sized companies reach their potential through leadership development and sales and marketing strategy growth.

I began my entrepreneurial career while studying at Wilfrid Laurier University. Looking to do something wildly different for a summer job I was one of the first franchisees at College Pro Window Cleaners. Turned out to be a great way to pay my way through school and the experience of running my own business was a pivotal moment.

Following graduation, I headed into the corporate world and a 25+ year career in sales and marketing, including leadership positions at NCR, SAP, Siebel Systems, Deloitte, Ideaca and Hitachi. Most of my career was spent specializing in the professional services, high tech, and financial services industries and so it is fitting that ALTA Consulting gravitates towards the Professional Services and Tech sectors.  

Scattered along the way, I kept looking for more “wildly different” experiences and embarked on several entrepreneurial ventures - a retail venture, a start-up software company, a property development company, and a consulting company (Ideaca). As a partner at Ideaca, I helped grow the company to $60 million in revenue which led to a successful acquisition by Hitachi in 2014.

Following the acquisition of Ideaca, I was driven to once again draw on my entrepreneurial passion to embark on a new journey. ALTA Consulting was born! 

In all of the mid-sized companies I’ve worked in, or with, there has been a common theme. Growth stalls due to issues around leadership development, scalable processes and systems, and marketing. In order to reach their potential, entrepreneurs, need help with leadership, growth, sales, and marketing. ALTA is here with a team of deeply experienced go-getters who can help in all of these areas!  ​
