In November 1996 John Major still resided at Number 10, Bill Clinton had just been elected to serve a second term as President of the USA, UK base rates were 6%, and Glen Hoddle was the England Football Manager.
On 18th November that year I founded Coriolis Ltd into what was a very different world. I started the business primarily because I wanted to work with people who I liked and respected, and those who approached consulting with humility and empathy. It’s not always been plain sailing but I’m enormously proud that we have reached this 20-year anniversary. Many of the clients we have worked with over the years are now not only supporters of the business, but also personal friends.
Two people that I would especially like to thank are Mark Schubert, who succeeded me as MD in 2014 and has been with Coriolis for 18 years, and Sarah Henshaw, who has been working tirelessly behind the scenes for the past 17 years.
I’m very excited about the future of Coriolis and what it holds. As we move forward into this next chapter, Coriolis has broadened its geographical base and taken a stake in WDScott which provides diversification into exciting new sectors. But more importantly, our talented team is expanding in depth and ability whilst retaining that elusive human touch.
