about us

As a boutique firm, we understand the challenges of leaders in today’s business environment. Companies have no time to waste, whether it be with addressing a bad hire or wading through the indecision holding up the go-forward plan. That’s why we take a pragmatic approach to all of our work; we want to be as efficient as possible with your time to give you the insight you need to make better decisions.

We are also about more than just performance. We are values driven, taking pride in the “how” of the way the work is done as well as the accomplishment itself. We know that reputations linger in business and are focused on maintaining ours and enhancing yours as our client. Learn more about our four core values below.

our values

The Golden Rule

We treat others the way we would like to be treated. We live up to our promises, uphold high ethics, and seek to be good representatives for you with your candidates and portfolio companies.
 

Relentless Excellence

We continually invest in our products and skills to deliver on this commitment. We engage in partnership with our clients to refine and deliver the best advice possible.
 

Diplomatic Directness

Feedback is a gift and the result of our work can result in many gifts. We aim to deliver that feedback in as direct a manner that still values the individual or company receiving it.
 

Good Steward

To whom much is given, much is required. We give back to our community through sharing our time, talent, and resources to those whom we can help.
