People
First!

We believe that our business is about ‘people first’ and how we help them meet their business and personal objectives. Thus our logo represents stylized “people” and is shaped as a circle or sphere. This is a deliberate design element reflecting the importance of collaboration, and the degree of connection between our employees and the clients they serve.
