Managing Director, Connext

Providing role clarity to help business leaders fully achieve their short-term and long-term goals.

Client

Connext, an equipment finance company founded in 1996, has been working with Aliniti since early 2015. They are a national company with headquarters in Indianapolis, working with vendors and dealers to sell equipment and helping customers finance their equipment. Connext has seven employees.

Challenge

Five years after acquiring another business, Connext was struggling to define the roles of each of their employees, including the president and vice president. Connext needed to clearly define each job role, while also determining if any new hires were needed.

Solution

With future growth in mind, Aliniti helped Connext determine immediate and long-term goals for HR, and work on a plan to realize those goals.

To help Connext, our solutions included:

  • Analyzed the current roles of employees at Connext
  • Worked with the top executives to determine what additional roles, if any, were needed
  • Rewrote job descriptions for employees to better reflect their roles
  • Determined metrics for performance reviews to refine roles over time

Results

“Together we defined and agreed on the roles, and now we all work together better than before,” says Ken Wuethrich, Managing Director. “We really gained respect for each other. Now we have boundaries, and we can laugh about it when we say, ‘You’re in my sandbox.’” Since their work with Aliniti, Connext has been acquired by a larger company. “In fact, when they saw our discipline and organization based on Aliniti’s work, they were really impressed.”
