What I Do

When someone asks what I do for living, it’s tempting to point out three-decade track record for helping to transform world-class companies into sharper, smarter, better versions of themselves. It’s true; my mission is to help management teams create such high levels of economic value that together we redefine our respective industries.

But that's only part of the story.

The rest of the story is about my way of doing things—intangibles that can't be financially measured or modeled but that truly make the difference. As my clients have outperformed the S&P by four to one, one by one, they experience the power of those intangibles.


I work across all types of industries, with all kinds of clients:

· Large multinational corporations

· Leading private equity firms

· Midsize companies

· Small start-ups

· Nonprofit organizations

But what unifies my clients, is that they all tend to be bold, ambitious business leaders.

· They think and act like owners.

· They are not satisfied with the status quo.

· They want a sparring partner to challenge them.

· They want a personal trainer to push them to their best, not a "yes-man."

On every case, I look at the business from a chief executive's perspective. I start by asking the right questions, and then dig deep into the numbers to unearth the right solutions. I don't settle for off-the-shelf solutions; my approach and recommendations are highly customized. I help clients decide where they want to go, and how to get there.

And I don't stop there. I make sure those decisions get translated quickly into action and that the client's team can sustain the momentum into the future. I commit to leaving organizations stronger than when we arrive.
