The Connelly Group of Companies (CGC), has a reputation for identifying opportunities, then quickly developing and executing strategic plans to achieve objectives. Following this approach, we have conceived and built a series of successful companies from the ground up over the last 35 years. We are a private company founded in 1980. Our clients say one of our greatest strengths is our ability to coordinate and find consensus between disparate groups of stakeholders, so that together, they may achieve goals otherwise unobtainable on their own.
