Client Profiles, who are Atlanta based, are soon to launch the CP Foundation and aim to 'partner' with law firms to raise $2.5 million for charitable causes including education programmes in Georgia. Their drive will be to do deals with law firms with a negotiated percent going to their CP (Client Profiles) Foundation.
Running the CP Foundation as a not for profit, Whit McIsaac the CEO of Client Profiles, plans to raise the quality of Georgia education and its ranking, which currently sits at number 49 out of 50 compared with Atlanta which is ranked as one of the top spots in the country for education.
Client Profiles is already working on software deals with clients at discount costs to help Californian lawyers working with death row inmates.
Whit was inspired after hearing a CSR talk at Clifford Chance, who are following or mirroring their clients, like UBS and Credit Suisse in matching funds that employees give to charity to help their local communities.
Client Profiles grew 29% in 2007 and Whit believes their Microsoft alliance has helped them really reach the top. "They have 20,000 sales people and 4,500 partners." He points out, highlighting their capacity for sales. Client Profiles have made great strides in the UK market also recently partnering with well known reseller and consultant TFB.
