With more than 35 years of consulting, sales and general management experience in the United States and abroad, Ken Hedberg helps his clients drive their growth agenda, develop executive talent, establish corporate strategy, and achieve intended acquisition goals.

Ken’s areas of expertise include:

  • Sales execution
  • Organizational effectiveness
  • Executive assessment/coaching and leadership development
  • Merger integration

Prior to working with Pivotal Advisors, Ken was Partner of CLG, focused on strategy execution and coaching. Before that assignment, he served as President of a preeminent Minneapolis research and consulting firm, specializing in organizational and industrial psychology. The company worked with most branches of the U.S Government, several state and local governments, and a select group of Fortune 100 private sector organizations. Under his leadership over eight years, it increased revenues over 3.5x and profits over 5x, strengthening its market position in the federal government.

He also spent more than 14 years in positions of increasing scope and responsibility for a leading global human resource consulting firm, which specialized in management and executive assessment and development. Ken created and grew this firm’s sales organization, achieving more than 15x in revenues and 20x in profits over a six year period. He applied many of the principles Pivotal Advisors uses today to achieve sustained results.

After the success in sales and products, Ken initiated the firm’s European operations as its subsidiary President. While living in Brussels, Belgium, he established offices in London, Stockholm, Paris and Brussels. From a dead start, he grew the business to $4 million in annual revenues in just the first three years of operations.

These accomplishments led to Ken’s role as its President and COO – during his tenure, the firm grew by nearly 20 times in its consulting and products annual revenues. Some of his additional accomplishment included leading the effort to negotiate and successfully integrate multiple acquisitions and alliances, and increasing international revenues from nothing to 20% of the firm’s revenues.
