Team TBO

Our clients will tell you that the TBO team works hard, works smart, and works for them. We work to make their people successful, not lecture them or just give them advice. We respect their time, their work, as well as their knowledge and experience. We also know how to leverage our time with them to deliver what they need.

Our core team has collectively worked on hundreds of projects, helping clients successfully transform their business operations to bring their companies to higher levels of performance. Their individual backgrounds and careers represent leadership roles from diverse organizations and varied perspectives that are as invaluable in operating their firm as they are to planning and delivering projects. Their common thread is the desire to create a successful business based on accountability for client results, employee recognition and community service.
