After building geographies and consulting practices for others, Celia started Dietrich & Company to fill what she perceives as a gap in the professional services world – essentially providing a different service experience to the market and creating an expectation for how services are delivered. Clients should accept nothing less than a partner that does what they say they are going to do, is transparent, provides a return on their investment, and takes care of its people. Five years later, Dietrich employs 30 plus consultants and provides advisory services to assist clients maximize the value of transactions, deliver key programs, and optimize overall performance. The client roster encompasses public, private equity and privately held organizations, ranging in size from middle market to Fortune 100 companies, and serves a range of industries including healthcare, financial services, utilities, manufacturing and hospitality.
Prior to starting Dietrich in 2014, Celia was the Rocky Mountain Advisory Leader for PwC. With a focus in corporate strategy and transformation, she was responsible for building and managing key client relationships, attracting and developing talent across multiple disciplines and industries, leading strategic visioning sessions, and delivering complex programs. Before joining PwC, she was the Regional Managing Director of a public $800M professional services firm (RGP) leading the business transition from staff augmentation to consulting, the re-establishment and building of offices in Denver, Kansas City, St. Louis, Silicon Valley, San Francisco and Charlotte, and the fostering of a global strategic accounts program.
Preceding RGP, Celia implemented a Project Management Office (PMO) and managed the customer service and internal sales teams for Thomson Reuters. With the goal of consolidating customers and bundling products and services across various Thomson acquisitions, Celia and her team modified the end-to-end customer experience and executed programs impacting 5,000 plus employees and customers. Celia started her career as an auditor with Coopers & Lybrand, and during her tenure transitioned into the PwC Corporate Strategy Consulting practice.
Celia holds her BS in Accounting from Metropolitan State College of Denver and received her MBA from the University of Colorado. She is an inactive State of Colorado CPA (in good standing), on the Board of Trustees with Children’s Hospital Colorado, an Advisory Board Member of Vectra Bank of Colorado, and a Board Member with the Anschutz National Mental Health Innovation Center.
