Convergence Strategy Group brings together minds that have guided some of the most successful developments in the world. The New Orleans-based casino gaming and leisure consulting firm was formed as a partnership between Leisure Dynamics Research L.L.C.’s Scott Fisher, and Renaissance, L.L.C.’s Suzanne Perilloux Leckert, and represents the convergence of the far-reaching expertise of its partners. We provide analytical and strategic planning services to casino gaming, leisure, commercial, tribal and governmental development partners. Through continual innovation and collaboration, and building from a collective 45+ years of professional experience, we strive to provide the best for our clients.

Our founders are personally involved in each and every assignment, and have performed over 450 casino and resort-related analyses throughout the globe. We help our clients develop strategies for maximum success, from casino feasibility studies to hotel assessments, racing and racetrack studies, and integrated casino resort studies, to full financial forecasts for some of the largest casino resort developments and operations throughout the world. Our partners have helped guide projects throughout the United States, North and Central America, Asia, Europe, the Caribbean and Africa. Groundbreaking projects in Macau, Philippines, Singapore, Greece, the Middle East, Boston, the Mississippi Gulf Coast, and Las Vegas have all advanced with our assistance.


Rooted in our commitment to the public good and the AICP Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct, we support non-profits and government agencies in planning projects for the public good, such as arts and cultural districts, workforce housing, and airports. We regularly assist with non-casino and ancillary developments including large scale commercial, mixed-use residential, golf course, marina, theatre, convention center, bowling alley spa, and other related leisure developments.

Additionally, CSG has strategic alliances with several individuals and firms to broaden the scope of services that we provide to our clients. Our alliances extend our reach to the investment banking industry, casino gaming regulation, casino design and operations, civil engineering, transportation planning, as well as international construction cost estimation and construction management.
