GLOBAL EXPERIENCE,
PRACTICAL EXPERTISE
Our management team has a wide range of skills developed in leading international commercial banks and development finance
institutions. Between us, we have been responsible for delivering and implementing over 100 projects in over 50 countries in Africa, the
Middle East, Eastern Europe, Russia and the CIS, and South and East Asia. Importantly, we believe in actually implementing change, rather than producing reports. We enjoy meeting new challenges in new business environments, and particularly working in partnership with the
management and staff of clients. Good interpersonal skills and the pleasure we take in mutual problem-solving comes through in our work, demonstrated by the long-term relationships we have with many of our clients. We are optimistic about the future growth and success of many emerging markets, although we also realise through our experience that there are very real hazards and challenges to be navigated.
