Teamwork and experience powerfully allied

The Management Team

We are recognised as truly independent, trusted experts, providing experienced consultants with a proven track record of delivering high value strategic change.

Our heritage comes from Xantus, an IT consultancy that was acquired by KPMG in 2011 after ten successful years, at a time when it had grown to 100 people. Our aim is to continue to grow our business by providing the same service to more clients - after all, that's what we enjoy doing.
