Elevate the industry is our new, big and very important idea.  Will you help us?


    We are really excited about 2021 and beyond – for you and us, our firms, and our industry. With a vision to Elevate the Industry™,  Zweig Group’s mission is to be the leaders in driving performance and purpose for the AEC industry. Empowering leaders with the tools and resources they need to be more successful is something that we’ve done from the day of our founding, over 32 years ago. Some of the resources available to you through this website include:

    Advisory and Consulting Services – Under “Services” you’ll find resources for any business management challenge you face. Zweig Group has expert advisors and consultants to help you drive performance and purpose in every area – from board level advisory, to acquisitions, to strategy, to succession, to valuation, to recruiting, to marketing and BD, and beyond – Zweig Group has a team for you.

    Research, analytics, and reference – Under “Publications” you’ll find everything from real time data and research on the industry to timeless reference materials for every aspect of your business. This includes The Zweig Letter, the only weekly management newsletter for leaders in the AEC industry, now free to everyone.

    Training and Development – Under our “Learning” section you’ll find training for every aspect of your firm, targeting nearly every level of the organization from project managers to CEOs. Our learning programs are set apart as they are taught by our top advisors who work inside firms daily and can bring the data and stories to life as to what really drive performance and purpose in today’s AEC firms.

    Industry events – Under our “Conferences” section you’ll find information on our highly acclaimed Elevate AEC conference, one of the largest gatherings of AEC leaders for networking, learning, and celebration. New this year is our Elevate Leadership Summit, a limited in-person event for leaders who are ready to return to in-person networking and experience thought leadership at the highest level.

    Awards and Recognition – Under our “Awards” section, you’ll find information on our expansive and highly competitive awards programs aimed driving performance in firms and celebrating success. This includes the only national “Best Firms To Work For” contest in the AEC industry and the largest employee experience program in North America.

    ElevateHer™ – Under our “About” section, you’ll find a link to our ElevateHer™ program, arguably the most exciting efforts of our vision and mission. More than a program, it is a movement that is already proving to be transformative, driving performance and purpose to elevate the industry.

    We are excited to introduce some new offerings to the industry in 2021. Some of our own evolution will be marked by a new website, from the ground up. We will be combining the vast resources from thezweigletter.com and zweiggroup.com in one new structure. Stay tuned for these exciting new resources!
