Sam Renwick, founding partner of RNA, said, “Our clients usually want help beyond assessing the value of their firm or of a market opportunity. They want help devising strategies to capitalize on those opportunities. Adding John to our team is a natural extension that will allow us to offer even more strategic and commercial guidance to client company leadership teams.”
John Tanner commented, “RNA Advisors has experienced rapid growth in the past several years by setting the standard for excellence in market assessment, analytics, and valuation in our core industries. We now bring that same standard to developing market-driven strategies and helping to make them commercial reality. I am proud to lead RNA’s strategic consulting practice focused on unlocking the full potential of our clients’ opportunities.”
