Our Mission – “To Help Our Clients Find Their Way”
Inspired by the constellation Ursa Major which points to the North Star we collaborate with clients to envision challenging new goals and chart the optimal course to achieve them.
Ursa Major Associates LLC was established as a consultancy in 2001 by John Callan and Mike Comstock. As air courier industry pioneers, John and Mike traveled highly successful individual career paths from the beginnings of international document delivery to the maturation of a comprehensive global express logistics ecosystem. In founding Ursa Major, John and Mike saw an opportunity to share their entrepreneurial passion for business growth, well-honed operating skills and comprehensive postal – parcel – express – delivery expertise with client firms of all sizes, strengths and stages of development
Ursa Major offers clients a virtual constellation of consultant-“stars”. We have assembled an expert cadre of experienced executives, dynamic thought-leaders and proven subject matter experts to meet the distinct and varied needs of our clients. Each Ursa Major consultant brings a unique set of qualifications and skills crafted over many years of service for leading corporations, postal services, venture backed start-ups and/or disciplined management consultancies.
We take care in selecting consultants for defined projects who have the required disciplinary and subject matter expertise to minimize the learning curve and maximize the engagement impact. Ursa Major is not an overhead-burdened organization driven by demands for headcount productivity. We take a scalable approach to our assignments and are pleased to accept short-term, highly focused tasks and build on them toward long term comprehensive engagements as required.
Ursa Major consultants work hard to earn our clients’ appreciation and confidence. As experienced executives we naturally take a collaborative approach to our engagements working closely with clients to solve problems that we feel to be our own. Together, we develop winning strategies that are practicable and we assist with execution as required. Our collaborative approach, our comprehensive expertise in the delivery ecosystem and our focus on the transformative forces and disruptive innovations that are shaping its future set Ursa Major apart from other consulting firms.
