How we do it


We know retail and real estate from the inside out. For over a decade our approach has supported dozens of industry-leading organizations through braver thinking. We work alongside large, small, public and private companies with proven success developing and executing corporate-wide strategy.


Supportive of culture and enhancing the bottom line, we partner with leadership to address the rapidly changing consumer economy . Whether managing a business repositioning, adapting to evolving markets or igniting internal innovation, we focus on mission-critical needs that produce measurable results.


We work collaboratively as a trusted advisor, shoulder to shoulder with the executive team and the results speak for themselves. Transparent, committed partnership is fundamental to our relationships with many of the best real estate and retail organizations in the industry.

Where are we today, how did we get here and what’s holding us back? We dive deep with interviews and data analytics to get a complete view.

We aren't limited by what's always been done. We orient internal observations with the broader industry as well as adjacent industries for context and inspiration.

We'll never have all the data we want, but by now we have enough of what we need to decide on the best course for strategic action.

We flip the switch, testing and learning as we go. We keep what works and adjust where needed in the spirit of continuous improvement.

Rachel is constantly on the cutting edge, thinking about what’s changing in our industry and how we can adapt to drive outsized performance. She pinpoints the most critical strategic needs and makes it happen, bridging the strategy-execution gap.

We were looking for someone with extensive national exposure to bring us a fresh, unbiased view of our marketplace and portfolio opportunities. Rachel guides us as we seek to be both unique and best-in-class; balancing business success with our deep community ties and cultural values.
