WHO WE ARE

Croixstone is a boutique consulting firm known for connecting the brightest minds in business and community.  We drive business outcomes by accelerating and sustaining transformations.

ACCELERATING + SUSTAINING TRANSFORMATIONS

We accelerate transformations by directly leading with our Project MBAs and Business Mavericks who have seen and done it before.  

We ensure the right mechanisms are in place, and we work with clients to make their organizations capable of long-term, sustained performance.

Our portfolio of senior consultants have led transformations across Fortune 500 companies and are recognized leaders in their fields.

Our consultants are specialists in both the industries and the specific types of transformations that our clients are seeking.

We deliver our expertise through five primary practice areas including:  Finance, Human Capital, Operational Excellence, Program/Project Management and Risk & Compliance.

HUMAN CAPITAL SOLUTIONS

Process and technology aren’t the primary determinants for success with business transformations.  It’s about people and talent.  Without the right people, transformations can’t realize their full potential.  Croixstone Consulting helps clients sustain transformations by addressing people and talent needs in three primary ways.  

Interim Leaders – During the early life cycle of transformations, experience matters.  Our consultants are often available to lead organizations until a full-time leader can be transitioned.

Leadership Placement – We provide our clients with speed-to-hire for essential leadership roles.  We offer access to business leaders in discreet job change mode (hidden talent).  We help clients tap into the diversity that builds great organizations.

Leadership & Team Development – From team assessments and management skills development to 3-month intense learning, our consultants ensure our clients’ teams are fully engaged and capable of continuous improvement for transformations.
