Gerson Lehrman Group

General Information

We believe we are the market’s leading Insight Network, bringing decision makers the expert insight needed to get ahead in a rigorously vetted trusted environment. Our network of experts has been built and curated over the last two decades and offers immense breadth and depth of insight across almost every geography, industry and function. This powerful network allows us to connect our client users with highly targeted insights, in real time, that match their decision-making journey. Our platform, powered by proprietary data and technology, allows us to create these highly targeted connections, creating a powerful flywheel that improves Network Member engagement and connectivity, delivers differentiated client experiences (precision, volume and speed) and creates operational efficiencies.

As of June 30, 2021, more than 2,700 clients subscribed to GLG and many of those businesses have done so for over a decade. Within those businesses, we have over 60,000 unique Client users that we have been able to grow by 11% CAGR from 2015 to June 30, 2021. Our customer base is large, loyal and diversified, including blue-chip companies and leading professional organizations such as the top banks, consulting firms, private equity funds, tech companies, law firms, and over 40% of the Fortune 100 with companies in nearly every sector. For the last 23 years, GLG has been embedded in the critical research and decision-making workflows of our clients.

We believe we are the market-leading Insight Network because we offer our clients timely access to the right insight enabled by our data and technology powered platform. The GLG platform powers precision, speed and volume in matching users with the right Network Member, a broad suite of services that map insights to their decision-making journey, high levels of trust and robust compliance, and the ability to anticipate demand and guide the user discovery process. We are able to offer this level of differentiation by leveraging our distinctive assets: our data and technology powered platform that organizes our data from our Network Members and rapidly surfaces the right Network Member for the right query, our deep and broad proprietary expertise database through which we capture, codify and structure information from our approximately 1,000,000 profiled Network Members; a suite of offerings that we believe to be the broadest in the industry (backed up by deep operating and methodological capability); and our Client Solutions teams who are aligned to Client users and empowered by our proprietary data and workflow tools.

We deliver these offerings through our platform which combines our unique proprietary data with technology, tools and applications, and over 1,000 Client Solutions and Business Development team members. Our data and technology powered platform is designed to drive a flywheel that creates high precision, speed and volume in direct interactions with Network Members facilitated by our platform as well as a data exhaust that further feeds our platform, creating the ability to anticipate demand and guide the user discovery process with more specificity. Our platform is enhanced and supported by a broad suite of offerings that map insight provision to our clients’ decision-making journeys at high levels of trust and compliance.
