Archetype Acquires TopDown Consulting


Archetype, a management and technology consulting firm providing performance management and business intelligence services, has acquired TopDown Consulting, an enterprise performance management (EPM) solutions provider based in San Francisco, CA. The acquisition further accelerates Archetype’s growth in EPM services with a larger team and added experience serving clients across industries and technologies.

“By joining forces with TopDown Consulting, we are strengthening our commitment to bring clients the best service and experience to make better decisions through data,” says Jason Webster, CEO & Founder of Archetype. “Like Archetype’s own staff, TopDown Consulting has a team of hard-working professionals, who go above and beyond for their clients. Our two companies share similar values and dedication to our clients which positions us for a stronger future together.”

Archetype’s financial roots and EPM practice have been central to the company’s long-term success and a recent area of growth. This acquisition is aligned with that growth and helps accelerate the capacity to serve new clients and expand geographically. Archetype can also offer clients of TopDown Consulting expanded services in the areas of business intelligence, big data and analytics consulting.

TopDown Consulting was founded by Juan Porter, a leader with over 25 years of experience which enables him to bring unmatched insight into the strategic impact of performance management solutions. Since then, the team continues to support clients and delivered powerful, flexible, and scalable solutions for hundreds of Global 2000 clients.

“I have the utmost respect for Archetype’s outstanding work, integrity, and customer service,” says Porter. “I am confident that TopDown Consulting has found the right organization and people to carry forward the vision I set when I founded the company, to help clients leverage data for insights and make better business decisions. I look forward to working with Archetype and continuing to build upon my original vision.”

The acquisition took effect on November 2, 2018 and will not interrupt existing client service engagements.  Over the next two months, the two companies will work together to integrate TopDown Consulting’s team and business functions into Archetype’s organization. Both companies anticipate a seamless transition for clients.
