Corral Consulting developed out of the insightful vision of Richard Xavier Corral, who while in graduate school at UCLA’s Luskin School of Public Affairs, discovered an interest in consulting, yet realized that most of the major firms did not serve the diverse and underserved communities he identifies with.
To help empower these communities’ social change agenda, Richard embarked on a mission to personally consult the businesses serving these communities. He created a business model and platform that assembles professionals with diverse skills, content expertise and networks to provide a comprehensive suite of business services. Officially launching part-time in 2008, Corral Consulting became Richard’s full-time career in 2010 and has since added two business partners and six consultants.
Richard envisions Corral Consulting as a firm that provides the distinct experience, expertise and relationships needed to reveal business strategies that optimize both financial growth and social impact. Corral Consulting has cultivated lucrative business opportunities for clients in corporate, government, private and nonprofit sectors by identifying and addressing their special needs in communications, community engagement, evaluation, fundraising, policy, research, education & training, and organizational management.
Corral Consulting continues to assist businesses across all sectors, particularly those that serve minority and at-risk communities, thereby promoting diversity and social change.
