Description

The Burton Grad Associates, Inc. records contain documentation from the consulting firm for software and services companies owned and operated by Burt Grad from 1978 through the early 2000s. Grad and his associates completed hundreds of short term projects for over 200 companies, including Sterling Software, Sterling Commerce, Informatics, and AGS Computers. Projects were focused on strategic and organizational planning, company valuations, due diligence studies, and some expert witness legal projects. The collection contains correspondence with clients, background information collected for the projects, and draft and final reports prepared for clients related to this work. Additionally, a small amount of material in the collection relates to another consulting firm Grad started called Heights Information Technology Services, a publishing company he owned and operated during the 1990s called CustomerCare, Inc, and correspondence from Grad while he was still at IBM between 1974 and 1978.
