West Monroe’s Gil Mermelstein named one of Consulting® magazine’s Top Consultants of 2022

West Monroe is honored to announce that Gil Mermelstein has been named one of Consulting® magazine’s Top Consultants for 2022. Mermelstein, a West Monroe Board Member, Managing Partner, and the firm’s next Chief Operating Officer, earned the “Excellence in Client Services” award in recognition for his accomplishments serving clients and contributing to the firm’s overall success. 

Gil Mermelstein

Mermelstein has been a prominent consulting leader and entrepreneur for three decades and continues to play a leading role in West Monroe’s growth and success. He is a trusted adviser to the firm’s top clients, using his expertise to guide through rapid industry shifts. He also founded our New York office and has since transformed the office into one of West Monroe’s largest. Under his leadership, he built several industry and horizontal practices in New York and increased revenue by more than 50% annually over the last five years. He has served on the firm’s board since 2012 and played an integral part in MSD Partners’ strategic investment in West Monroe to better serve our clients. 

“I’ve had the pleasure of working closely alongside Gil for over a decade and have seen firsthand how he entrenches himself in day-to-day client work, even as his role continues to significantly elevate at the firm,” said Chairman and CEO Kevin McCarty

We simply would not be one of the fastest-growing firms without the strong relationships Gil has cultivated with our banking and private equity clients and the undeniable comradery he has built among our teams at all levels. Gil is an exemplary leader for the New York office, our clients, and the firm, and I am incredibly proud of his achievement.


Since 2000, Consulting® magazine has identified the most influential practitioners in the consulting profession—those individuals having the biggest impact on their clients, their firms and the industry—and recognize them as a Top Consultant. Mermelstein and the other recipients will receive their awards at a gala dinner at Chelsea Piers in New York City on June 9.
