Private Sector Case Studies

Becoming a Market Leader
When we first met the North American team, they had a small beachhead in the US market which was quickly fading. Working closely with the management team and the Board, we developed a strategy that within 2 years (ahead of our 3-year plan) profitably grew them to be the #3 player in the market.
Strategic Shifts in the High Tech Industry
Ripples has supported a global telecommunications IT leader on a number of initiatives since 2011 (new leadership took over then). In particular, we have led the strategic thinking at the high-tech company, which led to significant strategic shifts and large investments in acquisitions.
A Business Turnaround During the Recession
When the housing crisis hit the US in 2008, the world's largest paint company's US operations suffered a big setback along with the rest of the industry. As the company was relatively sub-scale in the US, losses mounted faster than the competition. The firm engaged Ripples to work on a turnaround strategy and support its execution towards astounding outcomes.
Complete Turnaround of a Boutique Bank
Partnering with a newly appointed, young, energetic CEO, we facilitated a complete turnaround of a stagnant business into a growth engine. A sleepy, tired organization was transformed into a culture of high-performance and continuous improvement. Consistently growing year after year, the organization stays the course towards becoming the best boutique bank.
