Bassich & Associates is now
Actel Advisory Group

We deliver
actionable intelligence

A management consulting firm should listen carefully, ask smart questions, and take a rigorous approach to discover the information clients really need. Not sugar-coated, not broad brush, not what you already know or can’t use. Rather, the consulting firm should provide insightful facts, thorough analysis, and rock-solid advice.

At Actel, our research methods, proprietary sources, and professional passion drive a truly unique, robust service. We dig deep – and then even deeper — to uncover precise, timely facts and then offer pragmatic guidance to help you make more confident business decisions.

Our company was founded in 1989 as “Bassich & Associates.” Over the next three decades, we perfected the art of primary research and strategic partnerships. In 2021, we rebranded as “Actel” to more clearly express our mission and mantra – “actionable intelligence.”

Today and going forward, Actel Advisory Group continues to add value and have impact by informing, supporting and advising our clients on achieving ideal outcomes.
