Michelle Hyde, principal consultant and founder of the Hyde Group, has more than 20 years’ experience working with clients to overcome network infrastructure and data center challenges. While on the brokering side of the business, Michelle quickly realized that many sales reps and independent brokers forgo the most important step in generating lasting, scalable solutions: The needs assessment and consulting legwork that is so paramount to delivering meaningful ROI. This void in the marketplace—the absence of true client advocacy—is what propelled Michelle to start and grow the Hyde Group into what it is today.
