Bronfenbrenner Consulting Group (BCG) was established as B Squared Consulting (B2) in 1993. In 2015, B2 was reorganized under the leadership of co-founder Steven Bronfenbrenner to strengthen our focus on service to non-profit and public-sector organizations. • BCG’s approach blends strong management expertise with project consulting. Strong experience as a senior manager in the non-profit and public sectors gives him an in-depth understanding of and appreciation for the day-to-day realities of operating non-profit institutions. We apply this experience in our consulting projects to provide realistic and quantifiable methods to improve performance and meet strategic goals. • BCG takes a collaborative approach to our work partnering with community leaders, designers, managers, presenters, arts advocates, donors, artists, volunteers, educators, and students. • Extensive experience in financial management and consulting enables BCG to analyze complex organizations and identify key issues. We have developed financial forecasts for an array of institutions including theatres, performing arts centers, colleges and universities, school districts, social service organizations, symphony orchestras, operas, ballet companies, and museums.

The orchestra created the most fiscally sound long-term strategic plan I’ve seen come from an orchestra – due to the exceptional financial prowess of Steven Bronfenbrenner…Look for this economic plan to become a benchmark for how orchestras will fund capital projects in the future.
