About us

“To succeed at re-engineering,
you have to be a missionary,
a motivator and a leg breaker”

We are independent Managers


We have had our professional experiences mainly in private small and medium sized enterprises, global corporation and/or family companies operating in different sectors such as  industrial manufatcturing, consumer goods, pharmaceutical, healthcare, retail and shipping.

We share the passion for change management, digital transformation and open innovation tackled through pragmatic, agile and measurable actions focused more on hands-on approach than proposing of academic models. We are not only a consultant but reliable executive managers to be used for a fixed period.

We stand out for professional integrity and ethics, focusing on Customer needs and building a mutual trust within the project team to achieve an effective support with our customers and partners.
