Our Team

Who are we?

The partners and senior consultants from New Angles are experienced leaders, having worked on executive committees and boards of directors in the private sector as well as in non-profit organizations. We are also teachers and stakeholders in business schools in Europe and the United States. We know about life in organizations – managing people, budgets, projects, partnerships and stakeholders… We understand the short-term pressures that your teams experience. We know it can be difficult to change the habits of thought and practice in a complex and uncertain environment. Our mission is to facilitate this task.
