HALF A LIFETIME AGO, I founded Wareham Associates to specialize in international leadership selection and development. At that time my favorite dictum was that no matter how rich or successful you are, no matter how clever or crafty, the fate of your business rests in the hands of the people you hire. I’m delighted to say that many clients responded to that message, including Fortune 200 corporations, institutions, governments, and sophisticated smaller organizations. But if you do a thing extremely well, you cannot do it for everyone. That’s why we embrace the small is beautiful philosophy and dedicate ourselves to providing an intensely personal service to a blue-chip clientele at the uppermost end of the market.
