About Us

Right Angle is a strategic consultancy group that develops unique pathways and innovative initiatives for companies to realize their full potential for growth.

Backed by a diverse team of collaborators with expertise in key areas of business and political arenas, Right Angle leverages its broad network of relationships to achieve client objectives with a new angle on creativity and strategy.


We live in a world where complex challenges call for innovation and fresh thinking to help companies achieve their goals for growth and advancement.

Our Origin

Right Angle was born of the recognition that formulaic approaches to these challenges are not enough to succeed and thrive in today’s marketplace.

Especially now, as change pervades every aspect of our lives, imaginative and collaborative business solutions are needed to break through and rise above the less-than-inspired “been there-done that” sameness of strategies and tactics we see too often.

How we work

In developing the optimum solutions for our clients, Right Angle leverages the power of imagination, the expertise of its associates and the breadth of its network of relationships to deliver multi-faceted initiatives that soar above sameness and yield results greater than the sum of their parts.

In geometry, right angles are definitive and exacting; in architecture, they are strong and steadfast; and in sailing, they deliver the most powerful direction a vessel can harness.

Our name has meaning

We took the name Right Angle because we are all of the above, but – like the sail of a schooner that faces changing headwinds – we are flexible as well, responsive to necessary shifts in strategy, approach and implementation as conditions warrant.
