"In founding Alembic, I embarked fully on a lifelong passion to help people, linking this with my career in company and M&A advisory work. Bringing these two things together means a focus on supporting ambitious business leaders with lots of problems to solve.
I work with the CEO's, senior leaders and investors in large family and privately owned businesses. In our clients people are bonded by their shared history and commitments, sometimes very deeply within family businesses. Although they are bound together, they are often apart: stuck in situations that can be repetitive, deeply frustrating, stressful, confusing, and perhaps even frightening.
My deepest pleasure lies in helping them rediscover and then build upon the threads of communication and the threads of their lives, helping them find the courage and method to talk through their challenges and find agreement, direction, and renewed energy to move on to wherever that leads. At the lighter end of this, it means bringing alignment on major strategic options and a new binding narrative for a leadership team that needs strategic clarity and energy. At it's most challenging it can involve fixing families broken by the stresses of being in business together."
