Management consulting and leadership development advisory The Executive Hub has been launched at the Tonsley Innovation District in Adelaide, bringing together two former brands.

The joining together of two brands in Adelaide has seen the birth of a new South Australian consultancy: The Executive Hub, which will offer services in the areas of management consulting and leadership development and coaching, together with networking opportunities and events. The new consultancy is a result of an amalgamation between SA Business Advisory Service and The Executive Roundtable.

Based at the Tonsley Innovation District, The Executive Hub is led by business advisor and managing director Phil Ransome, who founded both of the Hub’s predecessors in 2015.

A degree-holder in Electrical Engineering from the University of South Australia, Ransome has since parlayed an early engineering career into a business advisory one, including stints with the University of South Australia and the Australian Industry Group.

Branching out on his own, Ransome established The Executive Roundtable along with SA Business Advisory Service, which will together provide the basis for the suite of services on offer from the new combined entity. The former serves as a network designed to bring together senior executives with business owners seeking insights on business and personal development through regular guest speakers and events.

SA Business Advisory Service meanwhile provides a range of consulting services geared around strategic planning, operations, and business and leadership development, with additional offerings in areas such as succession planning, assistance with grant applications, and independent board and management oversight. The firm also contributes to the program Speakers in Schools, a non-profit initiative to build schools and industry relationships.

To support the launch of The Executive Hub, former Adelaide HLB Mann Judd CEO Mike Rowe has been appointed as Director. Rowe brings more than three decades of professional services experience to the role, having first started out as a Chartered Accountant with KPMG in 1989. More recently he has served as a Business and Commercial Advisory director at Deloitte, and also held the CFO position at HLB Mann Judd.

“We’re very excited to announce the amalgamation of our two brands,” Ransome stated. “Our collective purpose, our ‘why’ remains the same – to improve lives through business. We are also thrilled to welcome Mike to our team. Mike shares our team focus to improve lives through business and brings new skills to expand our service offering. We are all delighted to finally share this news and begin the journey.”
