Design Thinking and Advanced Analytics Consultancy Selected as Finalist for United States Chamber of Commerce Emerging Business of the Year

(September 9, 2018) - Stonehill announced today that it has been selected as a finalist for Emerging Business of the Year as part of the United States Chamber of Commerce Dream Big Awards presented by MetLife.  The program celebrates the achievements of small businesses and honors their contributions to America’s economic growth.  Award winners will be announced at the Dream Big Awards Gala on Wednesday, October 3 in Washington, D.C. as part of the 2018 Small Business Summit at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. 

Stonehill was founded in 2016 to help the world’s most interesting brands to innovate, implement change, and accelerate growth.  The company has been recognized as international experts in Design Thinking - a unique methodology that uses human centered design and data driven insights to solve complicated problems.  In a short period of time Stonehill has delivered solutions for a diverse set of clients that include Melting Pot Restaurants, White and Case, Bremtown Cabinetry, Restaurant Magic, Vascular Insights, and Valley National Bank.

Stonehill was founded by Florida entrepreneur, Doug Pace, who had previously been a partner in one of the most recognized digital agencies in the United States.  Pace sold his interest in the agency and soon after suffered a stroke which required significant recovery.  During this time, he spent time talking with many business executives and researching design thinking, business intelligence, and robotic process automation.  The research showed that there was an opportunity to create a management consulting firm focused on helping companies to innovate and apply advanced analytics.

“Being selected as a finalist for United States Chamber of Commerce Emerging Business of the Year is a great honor,” said Doug Pace, Founder and CEO of Stonehill.  “We are fortunate to have a great team, incredible clients, and a supportive community.  Innovation is alive and well in Florida!”
