OUR STORY

Our roots began in 2006 in Vancouver, British Columbia where the ImagineX Consulting Founders met and worked together to deliver a project code named “Imagine”.  Project Imagine was a very demanding project with many traveling consultants.  Tight personal and professional bonds were formed and reinforced through project accomplishments and personal moments.  In the years that followed the founders scattered, and then reformed across North America, earning MBAs, founding and selling companies together, advancing careers, and starting and raising families.  The founders stayed in contact, followed one another’s careers and accomplishments, and cheered one another’s successes.   In 2015, the stars aligned for this group to come together and do something special, and ImagineX Consulting was born.
