The Pierce Group, LLC and Paige Pierce Consulting began with Paige Pierce. From the depth and breadth of her leadership experience, to her genuine connection with people, as well as her ability to see what others don't, Paige has the rare ability to easily navigate between the macro and micro elements of every aspect of each project. With expertise in the financial services industry and regulatory & legislative affairs serving as her foundation, along with vast experience with start-ups, turn-arounds and board work, Paige is uniquely qualified to assist a wide array of business owners and leadership teams with their next challenge/opportunity.
Paige is an experienced entrepreneur who loves working with owners and leaders to facilitate better decision making in relationship to People (talent, culture, engagement), Strategy (vision, strategy, influence, execution), Performance (position and process (re)engineering, operational excellence, results) and Succession Planning. She believes that what makes a business thrive is a combination of engaged people, values and vision-driven strategy, and superior performance-driving processes.
The Pierce Group doesn't claim to be all things to all clients, if what you want are reams of paper and endless analysis then Paige is not the consultant for you. Her focus is on helping clients excel in the role of creating a purpose-driven vision and strategy for their organization, really connecting with their employees, obsessing over their customers and the promises they make to them, creating a culture of compliance, and ultimately driving results through attention to detail and a focus on excellence at all levels of the organization. The energy that sets Paige apart comes from how much she cares about her clients and work, her passion, smarts, dedication, and that she defines her success by your results, both personal and professional.
