Q: Why is the culture at StoneTurn so important to you?
There are jobs and trades, and then there are careers. A career is an individual’s journey through learning, work and other aspects of life. A career infiltrates one’s life, both financially and personally. My trade is as an experienced financial forensic investigator; my career is StoneTurn. Not only do I love what I do—I like to believe that in some way I make a positive difference for our clients and others—but I love where I do it and with whom I do it. Underpinning every aspect of StoneTurn’s culture and ethos are the people. StoneTurn is a team of unique individuals with a common purpose: to effectively and efficiently help our clients using the collective abilities of StoneTurn. Our collaboration enables each of us to succeed at our chosen careers and purpose, which in turn enables our clients’ success.
Q: What do you believe sets StoneTurn apart?
Collaboration, or working together to create something, is unique to StoneTurn. We create an experience for our clients that contributes to their success. Egocentrism has no place at StoneTurn. Every individual—from the Partners to operational support professionals—works together to ensure the best experience for our clients, who are often facing adversities in complex matters. Our clients hire us because they acknowledge we are skilled experts. Our clients return and refer others because we put them at ease and they recognize that the collective strength of StoneTurn is what sets us apart.
Q: Clients also give StoneTurn high marks for being extremely responsive. Can you tell us about a time when you saw this in action?
My best and most personal example: I was in discussions with StoneTurn’s founding partners about their vision to establish a different kind of consulting firm and the opportunity to join them at the firm’s inception. Within five days, I had packed up, moved to Boston and sat in on a client meeting. There are countless examples that illustrate StoneTurn’s ability to respond quickly. Our collective skill sets, expanded geographic presence and lack of perceived conflicts allows us to be more nimble than many similar firms.
