Who We Are

A SOLID REPUTATION FOR SUSTAINABLE RESULTS.

Since 2009, Boxley Group has helped businesses manage and implement change by focusing on people, processes, technology and data. Specializing initially in energy consulting, we’ve applied those insights to expand into healthcare, manufacturing, construction, and other industries.

Transparency is the difference we bring. Our assessments are comprehensive and candid, informed by data and deep subject matter expertise. Our implementations are tangible. And our solutions are agnostic. While we support all major software platforms, we don’t force-fit technologies for financial gain.

Headquartered in Houston, Texas, we’ve served clients in more than 25 countries, earning a reputation for quantifiable, lasting results—achieving efficiencies and revenue during times of challenging transformation.
