It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Welch Consulting’s founder, Finis Welch. Finis passed away unexpectedly on Monday, August 24, at his home in Bryan, Texas. While Finis had withdrawn from litigation work for the last several years he remained an inspiration to all of us, who learned from him the value of empirical labor economics and careful data analysis. We will post a memorial to his life and work on our web site in the coming days.

A smooth transition of Welch Consulting management is in place and company operations will be unaffected. We will continue to honor Finis’ wishes that the company he founded perpetuate his high standards of service and integrity.
