Our Story

The TORI Story

A word or two from our joint CEO and founder Martin Harvey about the founding principles that sets the firm apart from other management consulting firms.

Let me take you back to 2002…

A group of three C-level executives, myself included, had been working for large Financial Services firms and we were frustrated. Frustrated by the way that management consultancies operated and frustrated by their lack of knowledge, experience and transparency. This also led to the creation of our tagline; Experience. The Difference.

So we decided to become the solution we were looking for. We set up TORI to be a transformational consultancy within Financial Services 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. Our experience was indeed the difference!

Now let me show you the future…

The pace of 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 and personal pleasure that TORI has grown and become an award-winning and recognised financial service consultancy. 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 working with you.
