A word or two from our CEO. Discover the founding principles that made us different from the start.
A group of three C-level executives, myself included, had been working in Financial Services. And we were frustrated. Frustrated by the way management consultancies operated. Frustrated by their lack of knowledge and experience. Frustrated by their lack of transparency.
So we decided to become the solution we were looking for. We set up TORI to be a credible alternative to ‘the big 4’ within Financial Services. To be a transformational consultancy that would do things differently.
It was a tough start. Our competitors were huge. Their reputations, influence and spending power dwarfed ours. I was even advised to close the firm at one point. And that was before the financial crisis hit…
But we backed ourselves through it all. We always believed that if we worked hard, built successful partnerships and stuck to our values of Trust, Openness, Respect and Integrity, we would reap rewards. And we did.
TORI is growing. We are breaking into new international markets and extending our business practices. The pace of technical and digital change is unprecedented, but we will always be ahead of the game – because we will always put industry experience and client relationships at the heart of what we do.
It gives me great pride that we have grown TORI into a global, award-winning and recognised industry leader. We have some of the best brains in the business and a proven track record of success. We also have big ambitions for ourselves and for our clients.
We look forward to doing business with you.
