Who We Are

We’ve been there and know what to do.

Our leaders have an average of 30 years of expertise in their given function at early stage start-ups, regional leaders, science and technology innovators, and expansive global corporations. Our team members have served public, private, venture and private-equity-backed companies of every size and in every industry. They include Ph.Ds. MBAs, CPAs and a Fulbright Scholar. Collectively they bring unparalleled knowledge and experience to their consulting and advisory support.

We know how to lead and be part of your team.

We not only assess, advise and build plans but as trusted advisors, our associates become an extension of your organization—on an interim basis, as retained consultants, or for special projects, such as mergers & acquisitions, divestitures, expansion plans, new market entries, repositioning and rebranding, succession planning, diversity issues and regulatory compliance initiatives.
