Canback Consulting is a high growth management consulting firm leveraging predictive analytics with an expertise in emerging markets, owned by the Company. From our headquarters in Boston, we operate on a global scale with some of the world’s largest companies as clients. As of today, this has taken our consultants on the ground in over 85 countries (and counting), including extensive work in Asia, Africa and Latin America.
