In August 2010, Transform announced the departure of Founder, Partner & CFO Darren Heil. Mr. Heil currently serves the company as a Senior Advisor.

In mid-2008, Transform's government practice - DifEQ Consulting - applied for a Mission Oriented Business Integrated Services (MOBIS) Schedule by the U.S. General Services Administration. On February 1, 2009, the U.S. General Services Administration awarded Transform an approved GSA MOBIS Schedule, Contract Award Number GS-10F-0075V. This contract award included Consulting Services (SIN 874-1), Facilitation Services (SIN 874-2), Acquisition Management Support Services (SIN 874-6), and Program and Project Management Services (SIN 874-7).[12]

In February 2008, Dale J. Boylston joined Transform as Managing Partner of Healthcare resulting in the formation of Transform Healthcare LLC. A noted and published healthcare strategist, former Greystone.Net Executive and Ernst & Young Partner, Mr. Boylston focused the practice on "re-defining the Healthcare Experience"[9] for hospitals and health systems across the country. In December 2008, Transform was awarded two contracts by Lancaster General Hospital to help formulate its healthcare experience strategy[10] and develop a new internet for the health system's cardiovascular service line.[11]

Growth and Diversification

Transform originated as a partnership between FocusIT Group,[6] a Georgia-based technology consulting firm founded in 2001, and DifEQ Consulting,[2] a Georgia-based process improvement and operations reengineering consulting firm founded in 2004.[7] John C. King, a former CIO of Delta Air Lines previously ranked in the Top 100 U.S. Public Company IS Executives[8] in the U.S. by InformationWeek, was CEO of FocusIT Group and a member of DifEQ Consulting's Board of Advisors. Christopher G. Burger and Darren R. Heil - the founding Partners of DifEQ Consulting - along with Mr. King, formed Transform in early 2007 with a primary focus on technology integration and process improvement.
