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 (Our 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.

CORE VALUES

At Twelve, Core Values aren't just words we say — they're something we hire for and live out every day. Our team is built on a foundation of culture, and it's this culture that has made Twelve the most innovative, successful implementation partner in the Anaplan ecosystem.

WELL-BEING

Making time for happy and healthy. Your best work is done by your best self. At Twelve, we recognize that fact and live it every day. From Wellness Wednesday workouts to hiring events at local fitness clubs, to the MS 150-mile bike ride, to offering healthy snack choices in the office, Twelve is proud to support our people in their pursuit of health and happiness.

EXCELLENCE

Accountability to deliver results through perseverance and passion. We thrive on a strong culture - one that is healthy, collaborative, and growth-oriented - but without delivering excellent results, none of this is possible. Twelve's reputation and business
are built on being the best Anaplan implementer in the industry. We hire excellent people and expect nothing short of excellent work.
This focus is reflected in each and every project we deliver.

PERSONAL GROWTH

Empower people to achieve their personal goals and aspirations. At Twelve, Personal Growth begins with our career development plans and tracks and doesn't stop there. Not only do we support our people in making the right choices to achieve their professional aspirations, but we also go the extra mile to help them accomplish goals outside of work.

COLLABORATION

Engaging as a team to strengthen our community. Our team collaborates on everything we do. In the office and across the country, we remain connected as a group through Slack messaging. We work together to solve the most challenging problems on a daily basis. We keep each other accountable
and recognize and reward our team members often for their great work.

OUR COMMITMENT TO DIVERSITY,
EQUITY, AND INCLUSION

Our mission at Twelve is to unlock potential for individuals, organizations, and communities alike. We recognize this is only possible by intentionally building
a talented team that reflects the diversity of our continuously evolving communities.

 

We strive to remove barriers and create an inclusive environment where our people feel empowered to bring their true selves to work every day. We will challenge our team to push beyond their comfort zones. We will intentionally learn, unlearn, and expand our perspectives by cultivating platforms for knowledge, growth, and empathy.

 

We commit to investing in our communities, partnering with organizations
to drive transformative change and amplifying marginalized voices. 

 

This is how we unlock potential. 

TWELVE GIVES BACK

Over the last several years, Twelve has chosen to invest in three programs that we believe make a huge impact!

EMPOWERING LEADERS

Children are the leaders of the future and we believe that technology can help opens doors in amazing and unexpected ways. The Empowering Leaders Program is designed to provide eligible clients with an opportunity to select a 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 $50k+ through our Empowering Leaders Program. 

M HEALTH FAIRVIEW UNIVERSITY OF MINNESOTA
MASONIC CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL

Making time for happy and healthy. Your best work is done by your best self. At Twelve, we recognize that fact and live it every day. From Wellness Wednesday workouts to hiring events at local fitness clubs, to the MS 150-mile bike ride, to offering healthy snack choices in the office, Twelve is proud to support our people in their pursuit of health and happiness.

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!
