The first port-of-call for privately owned businesses
looking at significant growth or change.

Privately owned businesses form the backbone of the New Zealand economy.

But too few understand this important part of our market, and even fewer specialise in helping owners and managers of these businesses succeed.

Our business is focused solely on offering owners of these businesses access to independent and direct counsel on their businesses, in particular on:

  • Strategy and Business Planning
  • Governance and Leadership
  • Succession and Change
  • Expansion and Growth
  • Capital Structure and Corporate Finance

Doing business is personal

Everyone says that business is about relationships – but not many firms walk the talk. Our team all believe that the best business is done on a handshake. That trust and mutual respect are essential. And that if we take the time to understand you, your business and your market then we can make a commitment to delivering you results.

Our style is direct. We take time to understand, then tapping our experience, we tell it the way we see it, and think about what we can do to help. And if getting results requires us to tap a wider pool of specialists in our network, we open doors for you and help it happen smoothly.

Our people are central to our proposition. Each of our partners has had significant experience counseling the leaders of family-owned and private businesses across New Zealand; and each brings access to a deep network of associates, affiliates and business owners each with the ability to add value.

Our business is all about private business – in fact we’re passionate about it. We have deep respect for people with the determination to build successful private companies, and aim to help by building long term relationships and facilitating solutions which make a difference.
