Bespoke Solutions

Our team operationalized a CEO’s good idea from scratch. We tapped culturally competent resources to determine that a less well known area would be ideal for purpose. Senior client executives were impressed not only with potential savings, but business concerns like talent pool, attrition rate, language skills, security, continuity, connectivity, and scalability. The number of hires favored creating a wholly owned subsidiary.

The client wanted the right people to run the subsidiary. We ramped up an executive search in collaboration with the client’s HR department. Upon site visit, the client’s senior executives were ready to occupy space and hire talent. From concept to contract execution, we took 5 months and were remarkably cost efficient.
