Our History

BroadBranch was established in 2005 on the idea that there was a better way to help organizations accelerate performance and solve complex business challenges. BroadBranch founder Matt Polak pivoted from traditional consulting models to design a distinctly different approach — one anchored in externally developed fact patterns and informed by original, creative, and critical analyses. The result? Our competitive strategy insights and recommendations have helped clients drive sustainable growth and performance for over 18 years.

John Hedden, BroadBranch’s former Managing Partner, brought his extensive corporate development and strategy background to the cause when he joined BroadBranch in 2009. Together, he and Matt delivered value to stakeholders through intentional and rigorous hiring practices, a commitment to ethical research practices, and diligent project execution.

In 2023, Courtney Matson was appointed Managing Partner – bringing years of experience supporting clients – to help the firm focus on its culture and values, client and team member growth, and expansion to serve new clients and industries

We have completed hundreds of engagements across a range of industries to help clients carve a path to success through organic and inorganic growth strategies, innovation, and a deeper understanding of industry, market, and customer dynamics. We continue to expand our services and support our clients through targeted executive search capabilities and leadership development and training

No matter the challenge at hand, we enjoy what we do, we maintain a steadfast commitment to ethics, and we take great satisfaction in helping our clients succeed. We are proud of our entire team and their accomplishments, and deeply thankful to our clients for the trust they place in us.
