Who we are
People-focused leaders. Human capital experts.
We seek the “why”
We focus on the impact.
Accendo is a human capital strategy firm that connects individuals and organizations to their potential through people-focused solutions. We assess individuals, teams, and organizations; align vision and goals with strategy; acquire the right talent for the right roles; and accelerate performance and results. And we do that not by changing the way you run your business — we do it by changing the way you view your potential.
So with Accendo you’re still You. Only Better.
Our approach with clients is focused on listening and adjusting, not breaking down what you’ve already built. We don’t use a sledgehammer; we come in with a microscope, a telescope, and a stethoscope—anything that can help us look more closely, get the big picture, and understand what makes each organization’s heart beat. Then we work with individuals, teams, and entire organizations to clear a path from where they are now to where they want to go, guiding and supporting them along the way. We are a strategic partner, a catalyst for growth, and a trusted advisor. At Accendo, we see your potential, and we’re here to make sure you achieve it.
Our leadership experience
Spans industries, competencies, and decades.
We don’t just work with those in the C-suite, HR executives, mid-level managers, and team leaders—we have worked in each of those roles ourselves. We know what it’s like, we’ve been there—we’ve hired, we’ve fired, we’ve managed organizations in good markets and bad, we’ve worked for private equity firms, we sit on executive boards. We have seen what you are facing and we are here to help you find solutions. Our collective experience on the other side of the equation has helped Accendo identify effective solutions that get real, measurable results. Now, we use those insights to drive client success because we love seeing people reach their potential.
