“TRE have worked on a number of separate projects with one of our portfolio companies over the past years, and continue to be engaged there . The lead partner on the project combined strategic insight and clarity with a pragmatic, hands-on approach - and understands clearly (all-too rare in the consulting industry) that lasting impactful change needs to be driven by the executives at the company, not by the consulting firm. This belief - ensuring that the client takes ownership of the agreed initiatives - has shaped TRE’s approach, and continues to make them effective and valuable at our portfolio company”
