The Bridge is an alternative, innovative and
non-traditional management consultancy, operating in Australia and internationally.

The Bridge between strategy and execution

We pride ourselves on being practitioners, not career consultants. Our large, diverse team of Partners, Associates and Consultants have deep client-side experience across the end to end value chain, in multiple industries, including Chief Executive, COO, CFO, CMO, CSO and General Manager roles.

 

We partner with like-minded leaders from start-ups, to large scale mature companies, embracing innovation and disruption, helping to transform organisations.

 

We have a track record of long-term trusted adviser relationships, supporting the design and facilitation of strategies that can be delivered, embedded, and drive real value for our clients.

 

Our ambition is to be the most trusted boutique advisory in the industry segments we serve.

This team also supports the subsidiary businesses of CXO2, our specialist customer experience consultancy business, and the

Claims Bridge International, a US based Insurtech.
