Who We Are


R.S. Willson & Co. engages our clients as true partners. We fully understand the difficulties of corporate renewal and turn arounds - because we have lived them. As C-Level leaders we have fought the battles for business amidst limited resources and keenly understand how excruciating and time consuming they can be. We know the dynamics, highs and lows, and most importantly the necessity of not losing sight of the future. We can provide the building blocks for a successful future not just as term consultants but as true partners moving forward.



  • Maintain a Relentless Pursuit of Meaningful Results for our Clients
  • Be the Best at What We Do
  • Maintain the Highest Ethics
  • Promote Internal and External Transparency
  • Respect and Value Employees and Clients Alike
  • Give Back More Than We Take from our Communities



We are a company that succeeds because we listen to our clients. We collaborate and embrace different points of view both internally and externally and communicate with transparency. We understand we can only be successful if we consistently deliver value and we drive deep lasting relationships with clients and colleagues alike. We strive for this everyday.
