Whether clients face mergers, acquisitions, location changes, labor issues, or new ventures, we help them anticipate obstacles through deep and bespoke analysis. That means working with management, stakeholders, employees, and local communities to facilitate seamless execution of business objectives.

Our consultants come from diverse backgrounds, including government — from the White House to town halls — as well as NGOs, nonprofits, and press rooms. With feet on the ground in more than 70 US cities, we have the pulse of markets and people alike.Working with Fortune 1000 companies and other high-profile organizations, Ichor has particular expertise when serving highly regulated industries and those most affected by activism.
