Steve Lane, our President, founded the firm based upon his passion for helping organizations accelerate their momentum and impact. Clients say Steve maintains an "insider perspective"; having spent 25 years on executive teams in organizations that varied widely in size, structure, and industry.

Steve newSpanning the marketplace from public to private to not-for-profit, these included: two healthcare systems, a publicly held printing corporation, a mortgage banking start-up, electric and telephone utility financing, and a wireless communications trade association. While on the inside, Steve served in various strategy, operations leadership and organizational effectiveness management roles.

A common thread throughout Steve's career has been his impact on organizations entering periods of strategic transition (deregulation, rapid growth, restructuring, IPO, technology conversion, and competitive re-positioning). Some were rapid-growth companies needing scalable practices and infrastructure, while others were mature organizations seeking to re-position in the marketplace and regain the external focus and innovation that drove their early success.

Clients describe Steve as a strategic thinker and trusted advisor who is credible with boards and staff.  With extensive experience in leading change initiatives, and an approach that is both results and relationship-driven, he provides a “real world” blend of leading-edge theory and practical applications.

A specialty area is working with in-coming senior executives during their first six months; an opportunity “window” that Steve characterizes as "fast-drying cement".

Besides being active in, and a frequent speaker at, a wide variety of association, healthcare and executive forums, Steve has served on the Board of the MDSAE and has a passion for facilitating executive peer forums/advisory boards.
