Below the surface, however, each industry has its own unique wants, needs and expectations. Advising a private equity firm requires quite a different approach than a K-12 public school system.

EBI has developed specialized practice areas that allow our consultants to measurably help our clients manage and grow their business through our expertise and counsel in benefit services:
