Living our values

“My father has been my inspiration: leaving school at 14, working 3 jobs, he gradually improved his lot with grit, curiosity and the quiet confidence necessary to stand apart. His story is emblematic of ‘learn, adapt and grow’ as well as having ‘impact through insight and tenacity’. Forced to choose, I would go with the latter; it’s a large part of why I get to do what I do today.”

Andrew's Story

Andrew was attracted to the Firm over 20 years ago by the opportunity to unearth new perspectives and to partner with ambitious management teams. To this day, Andrew derives his energy from the inputs - working alongside, and learning from, talented CEOs and colleagues; and the outputs - seeing the plans and assertions turn into the reality of stronger, healthier and, ultimately, more valuable businesses.
