PITTSBURGH, July 25, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Outside Angle, a change leadership and organizational development strategy firm, announces that Meredith Bortz, an experienced change leader, has joined the organization as a Senior Engagement Director. Bortz joins at a critical time as Outside Angle’s client portfolio rapidly grows across industries, including technology, professional services, healthcare, public infrastructure, and education.

“Our clients face increasingly complex and challenging environments both internally and externally—and they trust Outside Angle to help organize their teams and organizations in ways that make them antifragile in an ever-evolving environment,” said Sarah Silverman, Outside Angle CEO. “Meredith brings the ideal combination of a generalist skill set and an ability to quickly and authentically build relationships that is necessary to provide immediate lift to our clients.
