SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Silicon Valley-based Tasman Consulting LLC announced today that it has been recognized as a Kennedy Vanguard Leader in a new report on HR Consulting in Corporate Transactions by Kennedy, the leading consulting research and advisory firm. This new report introduces Tasman as a leader among global HR M&A consulting firms for the first year since its 2011 launch, and one of just six Vanguard Leaders in 2015.

Tasman Consulting's customized approach for clients helped lift their ranking to the top of the charts against the Big Four consulting firms.  Identifying the firm as exemplary for the delivery of a seamless end-to-end M&A experience for their clients, the report lauded Tasman for its hands-on approach as well as for its hiring of senior talent with deep industry experience.

Tasman is a women-owned small business that has been in operation for five years. Shari Yocum & Niki Lee, Managing Partners of Tasman Consulting LLC, said: "We are honored to be recognized for the first time in Kennedy's Vanguard for HR Consulting. Moreover, the identification as one of only six Vanguard leaders in a global comparison is without a doubt a result of the experience and customized end-to-end, flexible service we provide each client." 

Tasman's senior level team members have 10+ years' experience in corporate M&A and have completed a number of due diligence projects for Fortune 500 clients. They all have in-depth knowledge of HR operations and services as well as organizational change expertise.  Most importantly, Tasman's consultants operate as a true extension to their client's HR and Corporate Development teams, providing services as needed and strategic guidance for the most complex deals.

Shari Yocum is quoted in the report on the issue of culture, an area in which Tasman has continued to expand new offerings and provide thought leadership.

Yocum brings nearly twenty years of experience working in global firms, along the way becoming an industry leader in HR, M&A, change management and process re-engineering.  She has held various HR executive and consulting roles at Cisco, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Nortel and MSA, and holds a Master of Business Administration from Duke University's Fuqua School of Business.

Prior to co-founding Tasman, Lee led Cisco's HR Mergers and Acquisitions organization. Over the past 15 years, Lee has managed more than 60 domestic and cross-border acquisitions. Both Yocum and Lee publish and are interviewed regularly on the subject.
