OUR STORY

OUR FOUNDER – JILL KING

Twelve is in business to empower leaders to think strategically and act quickly. Twelve's Founder, Jill King, started working with the revolutionary Anaplan
platform in 2012 and hasn't looked back since. In a previous career, she spent
years muddling through Excel spreadsheets - spending more time reconciling
data than adding real value to her business. When she discovered Anaplan, she
felt empowered to be able to help her customers change the way they analyze
their data.

"The top-notch consultants at Twelve Consulting Group use the latest technologies to help solve business analysis issues our customers have been wrestling with for years…the analysis takes too long to put together, you can’t rely on the data, there are versions upon versions floating around emails and network folders, there’s too much data to manage in Excel…I could go on and on. Twelve, partnered with Anaplan, can change the way you look at your business."

–Jill King, Founder

OUR CEO — JOSH KING

Josh is deeply experienced in management consulting, especially leveraging EPM tools like Cognos, IBM TM1, and most recently, Anaplan. Josh was one of the first 10 employees hired in 2011 just months after Anaplan went commercial. In five years, Josh built the global pre-sales organization from the ground up as the Vice President of Pre-Sales. He joined Twelve in February of 2016 to help scale the organization.

 

Josh’s passion is growth: building a strong culture, scaling competent teams, and developing leaders. At Anaplan, he built a team with a very specific culture that was focused on continuous development and became a feeder for leaders at Anaplan. At Twelve, he is enjoying working with an innovative team to extend the culture, deliver customer value, and execute at scale. Josh works with our leaders to continue to evolve the way that we deliver excellence to our customers while developing our people for long-term success.

EMPOWERING LEADERS

This program is designed to provide eligible clients with an opportunity to select a K-12 school in their community for us to donate to on their behalf. The funds are contributed to the school with the request that they are used to improve the school’s technology resources.

To date, Twelve has contributed $70k+ through our Empowering Leaders Program.

PLAYWORKS

In 2016, we began a strong and lasting partnership with Playworks. It has evolved over the years to multiple cash donations, annual team participation in the Minneapolis and Chicago Playworks Kickball Tournaments and our new hires volunteering with Playworks at recess as part of their onboarding experience. Plus, the Playworks Corporate Recess has taken our Annual Kickoff to a whole new level over the past 4 years — we are blown away by the work they do and value this partnership brings to Twelve!
