About Us

Who We Are

425 Consulting Group was founded in 2014 by Rich Berry and Chris Brooks. Each partner brings extensive experience in enterprise consulting.

Throughout the past twenty years, Chris has played key roles in establishing FP&A teams, refining accounting processes, and implementing various financial reporting solutions across diverse industries such as manufacturing, travel, and high-tech. In addition to being the first Controller for Microsoft Retail Stores worldwide, he has also navigated environments ranging from start-up ventures to Fortune 500 giants like Boeing and Expedia.

Rich leveraged the accounting experience he gained from the CPA firm Moss Adams to become the Group Finance Manager at Microsoft. With a team of 25+ employees and vendors, he provided solution delivery for finance applications. He is proud to know that the systems, processes, and reporting work he originally designed, developed, managed, and maintained continue to be the framework of Microsoft’s operations today.

Together, with an equally qualified team of professionals possessing one hundred years of combined experience at Microsoft, their focus is on becoming a trusted partner for small to mid-sized organizations. Through tailor-made solutions in business consulting, business applications, and business intelligence, they transform organizations by aligning the strategic use of processes and technology.

425 Consulting Group, a Microsoft Cloud Partner, offers a powerful combination of industry knowledge, business acumen, and technical expertise to deliver data-driven solutions built on Microsoft Azure and other Cloud services. Since its inception, the firm has remained dedicated to its core mission of helping organizations envision new possibilities, achieve objectives faster, and operate more efficiently by aligning processes and technology with their vision of success.

Whether it is solving problems, streamlining processes, implementing business applications, or harnessing the power of business intelligence, 425 Consulting Group transforms organizations and positions them for growth.
