about us

IT STARTS WITH OUR PEOPLE

It takes an unusual medley of hands-on experience, continuous education, and personal discipline to serve up advice for business executives. Providing counsel that challenges closely held beliefs, takes into consideration market, industry and organizational conditions, and sheds new light on issues … that kind of insight requires intellectual depth, creativity, energy, and courage. So those are the skills we assemble with our team.

We find these unusual traits in all sorts of people from all sorts of places. From former human resources managers to vice presidents of operations and sales executives, we are a diverse team. We believe it is our diversity that helps us deliver fresh perspectives to our clients.
