Gaynor Duthie says: “This is a natural next step for the company.

Since launching Genoa Black in 2013, we’ve built a reputation for providing advice based on research, not just opinion.

“There is an unacceptable level of light-touch advice, and the fact that 86 percent of our new business comes from referrals is testament to the effectiveness of the advice we offer.

“The Genoa Strategy was developed to provide business advice to complex SMEs and companies aimed at companies that value growth.

“We have held our own in the current environment due to our customer relationships, our employees, our culture and the quality of our advice.”

The new department has a diverse team of strategists whose experience covers the breadth of complex B2B companies and the challenges they face.
