Our team

As you’d expect from a consultancy working in fast-moving environments, we structure our business in line with a ‘start-up’ culture – bringing the right expertise to each project whilst keeping our overheads low.

For each project we undertake, we select the right mix of associates and team members, along with any additional specialists, to ensure that we deliver best value to each assignment, led on every account by our highly experienced senior leadership team.
