Meet Andrea

Andrea Dunathan, principal of Dunathan Consulting, helps businesses make the best use of their people, processes, and technology for sustainable growth. Since she founded Dunathan Consulting in 2004, she has worked with clients of all sizes, across a wide variety of industries, to improve internal operations and free up the owner and their staff to do their best work. Her clients value her ability to quickly understand complex situations and develop workable solutions to move the business forward. She specializes in helping expertise-based businesses get to the next level of growth on a solid operational foundation.

Andrea is by far one of our most productive and valuable business partners. When working with us to build an important new capability for our global company, she quickly demonstrated a keen understanding of (and respect for) our business culture, values, and approaches. But what I valued most about Andrea’s partnership is her uncanny ability to thoroughly assess what we saw as challenges and translate them into meaningful opportunities for the business."
