Letter from the CEO

Elevate the industry is our new, big and very important idea. Will you help us?



The AEC industry is red hot – as red as the color on our new website. With industry performance metrics shattering all-time records, there’s never been a better time to be in this profession. There’s also never been a better time to be running an AEC firm – and that’s where Zweig Group can help. With a mission to Elevate the Industry™, Zweig Group’s vision is to be the leaders in driving performance and purpose for the AEC industry. Driven by the latest data and case studies from the highest-performing firms in the industry, Zweig Group equips you with the tools and resources you need to be even more successful.  Take some time to explore the Zweig Group website. Here is a sample of what you’ll find:


Advisory and Consulting Services – Under “Advisory” you’ll find resources for any business management challenge you face. Zweig Group has expert advisors and consultants to help you drive performance and purpose in every area – from Board level advisory chief fractional roles, to acquisitions, to strategy, to succession, to valuation, to recruiting, to marketing and business development, and beyond – Zweig Group has a team for you.


Research, analytics, and reference – Under “Publications” you’ll find everything from real-time data and research on the industry to timeless reference materials for every aspect of your business. This includes The Zweig Letter, the only weekly management newsletter for leaders in the AEC industry, now free to everyone. 


Training and Development – Under our “Learning” section you’ll find training for every aspect of your firm, targeting nearly every level of the organization from project managers to CEOs. Our learning programs are set apart as they are taught by our top advisors who work inside firms daily and can bring the data and stories to life as to what really drives performance and purpose in today’s AEC firms. In 2023, we have in-person seminars of all of our popular seminars and roundtables while keeping some virtual options as well. There’s something for everyone!


Industry events – Under our “Conferences” section you’ll find information on our highly acclaimed industry events. This year, we pair up our M&A Next Symposium with our Elevate AEC Conference and Awards Gala, one of the largest gatherings of AEC leaders for networking, learning, and celebration.


Awards and Recognition – Under our “awards” section, you’ll find information on our expansive and highly competitive awards programs aimed driving performance in firms and celebrating success. This includes the only national “Best Firms To Work For” contest in the AEC industry and the largest employee experience program in North America.


ElevateHer™ - Under our “about” section, you’ll find a link to our ElevateHer™ program, arguably the most exciting efforts around our mission. More than a program, it is a movement that is already proving to be transformative, driving performance and purpose to elevate the industry.


We hope you enjoy exploring our new site and find new resources to help you drive purpose and performance for yourself and for your firm. If you have any questions, we are an easy phone call away at 800-466-6275.
