Every organization goes through seasons when the in-house human capital just can’t get the company to the next level given time, resource and talent constraints. The Fortress Accelerator provides an injection of entrepreneurial leadership to drive that next phase of growth. The not-so-secret “secret sauce” they bring to each engagement is the ability to leverage the full power of the Fortress engine as part of the relationship.
We match your organization to one of our seasoned executives with a high-growth background and place them fractionally on your leadership team to drive growth and transformation. They act as the “tip of the spear” to move your most important strategic initiatives forward while the Fortress team acts as their go-to execution team. Since they are playing a fractional role in your organization for a short window of time (typically 6-18 months), you get world-class firepower on your team for the monthly cost of an admin.
What makes the Fortress Accelerator so effective for the right types of organizations is that we earn a majority of our compensation on the outcomes (revenue, profits, growth, equity value increases) of the engagement. Other than a modest monthly base fee, you only pay us when you get paid handsomely for our catalytic impact on your business. It’s a shared-risk, shared-reward relationship that puts both you and us in a mutually aligned relationship.

We’re currently seeking a full-time Senior Designer to join the team and work out of our Chicago, IL office. The right person for this position sees the bigger picture while remaining passionate about the details.
You’re knowledgeable and skilled in Web, Branding, large-scale marketing campaigns, and more. You’re a jack of all trades in creative software, but you also have a passion for design beyond the screen. You understand that great design is in the nuance—that subtle cultural references should be woven into the things you create and every project should be approached with the end-user at the center of it. You love working on a team with diverse perspectives and you’re willing to learn from as well as build up those around you. At the core, you’re a problem solver with a knack for making things look good.
