On episode eleven of Radically Agile, Catalant’s SVP of Strategic Partnerships & Marketing, Rich Gardner, welcomes Gavin Payne to the podcast. Gavin is the Founder and CEO of Payne Enterprise and brings seven years of consulting experience to his projects. He specializes in market research, customer insights, competitive analysis and due diligence engagements.
Gavin worked for 5 years with Bain & Company before officially launching Payne Enterprises, an independent consulting firm. While at Bain, Gavin completed an 8-month rotation in Bain’s Private Equity practice where he conducted market research diligences for top PE firms across a range of industries. He has strong vertical experience in the retail, industrial, financial services, and telecom sectors, and a number of his projects included a digital component. Gavin has over a year of experience completing projects as an independent consultant as well.
Listen in to hear Rich and Gavin discuss Gavin’s experience launching his firm and how large companies can take advantage of independent talent and firms, like Payne Enterprises. Gavin also shares with listeners what drove him to leave a lucrative consulting job to create his own non-traditional trajectory. This episode gives a glimpse into the growing world of independent work – its drivers, misconceptions, opportunities and more.
