We’re not a traditional consulting shop.

WE'RE BORN FROM A NEW KIND OF EXPERTISE

A mashup of finance and talent management. We think differently.

We’ve led Finance, Talent Acquisition and Talent Management at Fortune 500 companies, including Home Depot, Coca-Cola and Revlon. We have hands-on experience in operations from startups to global multinationals. We understand the evolution of talent needs as a company grows.

Saying “people are our most important asset” was a convenient platitude for the last 2 decades, but now it’s a critical reality most companies aren’t set up to deal with.

We blend our deep HR and finance experience to illuminate the connection of talent investments with business value - so you can deal (and do more) - now.

What You Can Expect Working With Us

We don’t think having fun and being successful are mutually exclusive; we think they’re mutually reinforcing. You’re going to laugh more than you’d expect.

We have a healthy cynicism regarding “same old” HR solutions. You’re going to enjoy change more than you’d expect.

We believe the purpose of debate is progress, not victory - so you can expect pragmatic, evidence based discussions to help accelerate progress. You’re going to participate in deeper discussions about your business value drivers than you’d expect.
