Cypress combines the best outputs of strategic consulting with precise staff augmentation, delivering a turnkey strategic solution.
We are unique in how we combine both elements - think of us like a more nimble Big Four Firm and more strategic staffing company rolled into one.
That combination enables us to strategically target the right resources to the proprietary assessment we provide for our client’s organization.
This combination drives the execution of strategic plans and accelerates ROI.
The Firm’s leadership has PwC and Andersen roots, providing the sophistication of a Big 4 Firm, but with flexibility and bench to deploy resources with greater precision.
In 2005, Cypress Resources was formed to serve as a different breed of consulting - more nimble than a Big Four Firm and more strategic than a staffing company. As the speed of business has increased, the need for organizations to remain agile has grown and proven the Cypress approach to consulting invaluable.
In 2006, Cypress Resources began working with PricewaterhouseCoopers in support of the Department of Defense Financial Improvement and Audit Readiness ("FIAR") efforts. As work supporting the DoD grew, the federal practice was spun out as a separate entity, Infrastructure Resources, Inc.
As Cypress Resources’ commercial practice continued to grow, the firm developed a unique methodology for creating alignment of and executing strategic initiatives. Growing demand for the methodology has evolved into a service-enabled software solution that helps executives see their plan more clearly and execute with more confidence. The combination of the company’s proprietary C4 Methodology and the ability to deploy targeted project-based resources has proven to be an extremely powerful solution for our executive clients.
In October of 2019, Jana Rome took over all operations of Infrastructure Resources. Jana’s leadership and “human-first” approach to business had an immediate impact on the business. As Jana began to streamline the business, the decision was made to streamline and consolidate businesses to create a singular focus once again. As of January 1, 2020, Infrastructure Resources will do business as Cypress Resources.
Jana Rome serves as the Managing Director and most senior executive of Cypress Resources. As a CPA who worked under PwC in the late ‘90s, Jana is perfect leader to oversee the daily operations of Cypress Resources.
Carey Rome, who founded Cypress Resources, and has served as its CEO, leads all Corporate and Client Development activities as well as leading the firms commercial practice.
Nick Guest, who has been with the firm since 2009, leads the firm's compliance and risk activities. Nick worked under PwC in early 2000 where he oversaw projects for one of the largest turnarounds in corporate history.
Cypress Resources is a remote first organization with support staff located in Birmingham, AL and consultants located across the country.
