About us

We are your partners in service

A community of practice.

Design Group International is a group of consultants who have chosen to be part of a community that is committed to the craft of process consulting. Process consulting is our shared foundation, approach, and framework.

Being part of a community means we learn and grow together. Consultants in our community of practice hold content expertise in a wide variety of fields. Each is an expert in their own right with a unique set of skills and experiences. We support and challenge one another, share best practices, and collaborate to advance the goals of our clients. Our community of practice provides our consultants with the flexibility to do their very best work.

DGI - about us 2

It started with one.

Design Group International was founded in 2000 by Dr. Mark L. Vincent. Today, the organization includes a growing and dynamic community of consultants across the country. Our consultants serve a variety of businesses, nonprofits, educational institutions, and faith communities throughout North America and beyond.

In 2019, Dr. Vincent transitioned from CEO to Founder of Design Group International. In this new role, he aims to further grow and elevate the field of process consulting. He plans to share this knowledge and experience to help prepare other consultants for the field through the Society of Process Consulting. The Society offers education, credentialing and a framework of professional ethics for process consultants.

With Dr. Vincent’s transition to the role of Founder, Lon L. Swartzentruber was selected to serve as CEO of Design Group International.
