A cooperative client service relationship to integrate Environmental, Health and Safety (EHS) into Governance Risk and Compliance (GRC) consulting services
August 24, 2009 – The Elm Consulting Group International, LLC and Milo Belle Consultants LLC announce the formation of a cooperative relationship that will augment Milo Belle’s Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) services to include Environmental, Health and Safety (EHS).
Chris Maxwell, Milo Belle Partner in St. Paul: “We are happy to forge an affiliation with Elm. They bring highly complementary expertise to our GRC services. We believe our clients are also integrating EHS management into larger internal GRC initiatives. Elm allows us to bring highly qualified EHS expertise to the table to support those clients.”
“Our business models and philosophy are very similar, so our mutual learning curves will be short,” said Lawrence Heim, Director in Elm’s Atlanta office. “We both emphasize high quality client service and innovative business thinking, while minimizing internal administrative processes. We are confident that clients will find the joint Milo Belle/Elm expertise valuable as corporate EHS departments frequently are considered an element of GRC programs.”
