Capstone Promotes Edelweiss Harrison to Director of Strategic Growth

Edelweiss Harrison brings over 15 years’ experience in senior-level consulting to enhance Capstone’s M&A services to middle market companies.

Capstone, a leading management consulting firm that helps middle market companies grow through M&A, announced today that Edelweiss Harrison has been promoted to Director of Strategic Growth.

She will lead Capstone’s strategic growth and market research projects for clients. Her primary focus will be on the first two phases of the company’s proprietary Roadmap to Acquisitions — “Build the Foundations” and “Build the Relationships.”

Edelweiss Harrison has over 15 years’ experience in guiding C-level executives through challenging strategic developments. She brings the added advantage of having worked in multiple manufacturing and services industries. Harrison is deeply immersed in the Capstone Roadmap methodology, having first joined Capstone in 1999 as a Research Assistant while studying at Georgetown University. For the last five years she has served as a Strategy Advisor in the firm.

During that time, Harrison advised medium and large clients on their domestic and international acquisition initiatives. She has conducted major research projects that follow Capstone’s demand-driven approach to M&A. She has also facilitated custom workshops for clients, evaluating opportunities and building growth plans based on objective data rather than subjective preference.

“We are pleased to have Edelweiss serving as Director of Strategic Growth. Her long history with Capstone and expertise in strategic consulting will further our commitment to helping clients grow through proactive growth programs,” said CEO David Braun.

Harrison’s strengths include her ability to build relationships of trust, based on candid communication and professional expertise. At the same time, she has exceptional analytic and project-management skills that ensure effective implementation. She says about her new role: “I enjoy helping clients clarify where they are today, define where they want to go and create an actionable plan for getting there.”

Originally from Brazil, Harrison is fluent in Portuguese and Spanish. She has extensive experience working with international markets including New Zealand, Australia, Spain, Latin America, Europe and the Middle East.

Harrison holds a Master of International Business from the University of Auckland and a Bachelor of Science from Georgetown University. She lives in Minneapolis with her husband, Craig, and their two sons.
