Get to know Jeremy

Jeremy Lacy’s career began in audit.  He spent approximately 7 years there before opting for a change of pace where he decided to transition into consulting to get more experience into the industry side of the business.  Most of his consulting was in the energy sector doing special projects.

What led you to consulting?

Once I figured out audit was not for me, I knew there were parts of audit that I enjoyed.  Like moving from client to client.  I loved the idea of learning and working in many different industries, and consulting seemed to be the perfect blend of what I liked from the audit world, and what I wanted to do new in the industry.

How would you describe the culture at Bridgepoint?

The level of support provided by Bridgepoint Consulting is the first thing that springs to my mind. Bridgepoint’s staff is extremely attentive and always willing to assist others. Another cool thing about Bridgepoint is that if you ask to learn something new…leadership is really good about making that happen.

What attracted you to Bridgepoint and when did you know #teambridgepoint was for you?

Having worked at several consulting firms, I have seen how a lot of these firms protect their bottom lines.  There was no sense of urgency in the competing firms I worked at to find that next project for their consultants because they could simply lay off the consultant until they found the next project.  Bridgepoint operates in a different manner. Their business philosophy is based on stability and valuing their consultants. Their approach of stability and respect for their consultants struck a chord with me.

Talk to us about who you are outside of consulting.

Outside of work, the vast majority of my time goes into studying and investing in cryptocurrencies.  So much so I would consider it a second job.  I’m also a car guy, so I watch a lot of motorsports and go to car events when I can…things like cars and coffee, Porsche club of America get-togethers, and track days.

What advice would you give someone who is considering a career in consulting?

Consulting is challenging work.  To be a successful consultant, you will need to enjoy solving problems and interacting with various groups of people to solve those problems.
