In 2002 Mark was on the deal team of a large global consultancy working on a transformative merger in specialty manufacturing.  Mark left the deal team to form SATOV and to help that client realize identified operational synergies.

The SATOV team then worked with our client over multiple years to integrate and improve operations in everything from rationalizing manufacturing footprints, to reducing SKU complexity and improving customer service.

Since then we have executed over 125 operational engagements for our other clients across a range of industries. We combine the SATOV analytical approach with deep subject matter expertise from specialists on our extended team.  Our clients tell us that our operational work is better because it is grounded in strategy; we focus on improving operations in a way that reduces cost and improves competitive position.

At SATOV we believe that advice is valuable but that help is better.

Once our client agrees to our improvement recommendations, we often leave a team on the ground to ensure our clients see the benefit of improvement.

We needed a firm that could quickly get a sense of the issues and turn them into action. SATOV started with a data-rich evaluation and then translated that into operational initiatives which significantly improved our value proposition

Former Vice President, Direct Energy

We’ve used SATOV to help us with a number of projects ranging from strategy to manufacturing footprint rationalization and implementation. Every time we were very pleased with the results. SATOV always delivered what they say they were going to deliver

Former COO, Johnson Outdoors

The SATOV team helped us with some complex operational & organizational issues. In a relatively short period of time, we had developed recommendations that are expected to significantly improve our effectiveness with substantial buy in from the parties involved.

SVP, Canada Life

By working with SATOV, not only did we develop and deliver an effective project management program, we experienced significant learning and skills development throughout the process that we redeploy as we engage in other initiatives. SATOV's experienced professionals were dedicated to effective implementation.

Former SVP, CIBC Mellon

SATOV is the best I have ever seen at managing the complex issues which ensue from merging two large businesses. They helped us every step of the way – from integrating our supply chain through to our field sales operations to the back office. They always provided objective, well thought-through recommendations which they helped implement.
