Q: Clients say they look to StoneTurn to be a trusted adviser. Can you describe how we serve in that role?
Being treated as a trusted adviser is the very best compliment we receive from a client. Our clients are intelligent, talented and successful professionals, and we work hard to earn the role as their trusted adviser. On every engagement, I strive to use our team’s experience and expertise to understand the problem from our client’s perspective, form an independent assessment of the relevant issues, and provide honest and straightforward feedback and advice. I believe it is the ability to provide candid opinions based on our unique perspective that is most valuable to clients seeking a trusted adviser.
Q: StoneTurn is known for being collaborative. Describe for us how the firm is able to work so seamlessly with clients and as colleagues.
Collaboration is essential to the way we serve our clients. We actively support and encourage our professionals to work together across practices and geographies whenever a client could benefit from broader exposure to the firm. This approach ensures that StoneTurn’s engagement teams take advantage of the entire firm’s experience and expertise when working to solve a client’s problem. As a result, we are able to provide better, more efficient solutions to our clients.
Q: What do you believe sets StoneTurn apart?
The truth is we use many of the same adjectives to describe our firm as our competitors. The critical difference is, for StoneTurn, these adjectives are not just buzzwords dreamed up by corporate marketers; they are the foundation of how we work with our clients every day. Our clients often acknowledge that the experience of working with StoneTurn is a differentiating factor. These clients experience our ability to provide valuable insights based on our unique perspectives, our ability to simplify the complex, our collaborative and efficient approach, and our responsiveness to their needs. It is this “real life” experience that sets StoneTurn apart from other firms.
