National consultancy establishes Los Angeles office and hires technology, media, and entertainment industry expert as its West Coast Regional Lead  

Washington, D.C. – May 6, 2019

Peter Gumbrecht has joined MorganFranklin Consulting as a Managing Director and the West Coast Regional Lead. The establishment of a Los Angeles office and the appointment of Gumbrecht mark the latest step in the company’s ongoing national expansion and growth on the west coast.

“The west coast is a critical component of our ongoing national expansion as a firm, which started with the opening of our San Francisco office.  Launching our Los Angeles office and hiring an experienced, high-quality leader like Pete is the next step in our journey,” says Chris Mann, MorganFranklin’s Managing Partner and Chief Executive Officer. “His expertise at the intersection of finance and technology along with his deep industry expertise in financial services, media and entertainment makes Pete a valuable addition to our team.”

Gumbrecht has more than 20 years of business and management consulting experience leading finance, technology, and strategy initiatives. He is an expert in the design and execution of programs that reshape operating models while harnessing changing technology to meet future business needs. Gumbrecht has held key executive leadership positions in financial services, technology, media and entertainment—including four years working in Paris and London leading a global operation for a Fortune 100 company. He also spent a one-year sabbatical sailing around the world on his 45-foot sailboat, the SV Wanderlust, an experience that taught him adaptability, perseverance, patience and perspective which he draws from each day.

“I am excited to join MorganFranklin and look forward to working with our clients,” Gumbrecht says. “I have worked with companies of all sizes and have run my own businesses as well. I understand the challenges my clients face and I enjoy partnering with them to delve into their most pressing issues and find solutions that work.”

Gumbrecht holds a B.A. from State University of New York, Albany, and has completed graduate courses in international finance, strategic marketing, and executive leadership at the London School of Economics and INSEAD.
