It's all about you and how we can add value to your business. We are driven professionals with years of experience and we want to see you succeed.
Those sorts of words and sentiments are easy to find on many websites. Our difference is that we don't let anything get in the way of superior customer service. It's easy to make all kinds of promises, but delivering is where it counts. And that's where our focus is, always has been, and always will be.
The business precursors of Menchions Consulting Inc. have existed since the mid 2000s when Colleen began facilitating in the former CA educational program for the Atlantic School of Business. As this work grew, she took on both more and higher level assignments and now works within the Atlantic Region and Nationally. She has done this all while also serving at the management and executive levels in public practice and the not-for-profit space.
MCI has grown from that seed.

MCI's principals are below. We can leverage a national network of other practitioners with whom we trust from having worked together before.

Founder & Principal
Andrew has considerable experience in both technical and business-focused roles and is able to combine both of these with ease. He "speaks" both Engineering and Business and is as comfortable wearing safety boots in the field as a suit and tie in the boardroom.
Over the course of his career, he has been responsible for the development of type-approved software expected to run without human interaction for up to a year at a time; has worked in porting and certifications for enterprise software; as a software consultant for SMEs implementing an ERP for the first time, and as a tax credit adviser. From 2015-2017 he was responsible for the design and development of the data collection and processing system for a robot designed to operate in the harsh environment of the North Atlantic (see: https://youtu.be/PRTzHaWOMTQ).
Andrew has worked in the government incentives space almost continuously since 2011. His clients include a wide range from single person startups, to regional firms, to the largest global professional services firms. This has, in turn, resulted in serving prominent Fortune 500 companies.
Andrew is a registered Professional Engineer in the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador.
