approach, our commitment to consistently exceed client expectations and
our ability to provide implementable solutions is what we are all about
Who We Are
Winston Weber & Associates (WWA) was founded in 1985. Our goal has always been to have a global perspective and provide leadership thinking with practical, implementable solutions. We are known for providing more value and client return on investment than very large consulting firms staffed mostly by junior consultants with minimal business experience and those loose consortium consultancies, staffed by independent contractors, who typically experience inconsistent quality control. More value and client return on investment means an uncompromising emphasis on quality and trust, a “say it as we see it” approach and the ability to consistently exceed client expectations. These qualities and our dedication to providing leading edge thinking with implementable solutions has helped us to achieve our goal…this is our reputation today.
Our senior consultants average over 30 years of business experience in general management, retail management, sales management, brand management and supply chain management in the consumer products industry. They bring a unique blend of skills, expertise and a “real world” business perspective to each client assignment and are ideally suited to deal with companies trying to leverage leadership positions in the marketplace as well as turnaround situations. Importantly, whatever the situation, we have an in-depth appreciation for the need to focus on running the business while changing the business. This ensures the achievement of near-term performance targets while change is taking place.
