The origins of The River Group go back to the late 90s when Sandy and Peter worked together as client and consultant.
Since then, Sandy has been CEO four times, based in the US and in Europe, and has led many successful transformations from M&A to downsizing to restructuring.
Our shared track record led us to form The River Group to help leaders transform their business and businesses transform their leaders.
Our combined client/consultant perspective makes us a different kind of consulting firm. We combine years of experience leading change ourselves or advising others on leading change.
Our track record is strong. And it is shared. We have a shared past. Shared learning. A shared DNA in how to do it well.
