Who We Are
At our center are two individuals with deep roots in the global office products industry at senior level – Steve Hilleard and Doug Ramsdale. Each brings hands-on experience of life on the front line. Each has led business operations and taken financial and operational responsibility for the success of their work. Both know business and the power of an organization to drive success or to frustrate it.

Our focus is on achieving great results - delivering a financial return on the work and money invested and creating a changed business environment for the long term. Together, we offer unique and powerful worldwide resources that are immensely valuable to today's global industry, with strong relationships and truly specific knowledge and expertise that are available nowhere else.
