In 2006, Ed Riefenstahl was recruited by the TCU Neeley School of Business to define, develop and implement a “true” consulting initiative that would mutually benefit both TCU Neeley graduate students and fee-paying clients. Sixteen years later, Riefenstahl continues to bring his director-level consulting experience at EY, KPMG and BearingPoint – along with leading his own boutique, performance and process improvement firm, ROI Associates – to the business school to serve both students and clients as the Neeley & Associates Consultants founding director and program leader.
