We Succeed Through Our Relationships
Founded by former Merrill Lynch Managing Director Cynthia Hayes in 2008, Oculus Partners began with a simple objective: help clients grow their businesses in healthy and sustainable ways.
“As a senior executive, there were always strategic opportunities that were never realized due to the critical issues of the day. I always wished for a consulting firm that understood our business, had a strong outside perspective, and could provide a good analysis of options in a way that we could clearly see the opportunities, design a plan, assign resources, and implement the solution that was right for our business,” Hayes says. “Oculus was founded on just that basis—use creative experts with a broad and deep knowledge of the business to create real growth opportunities.”
Drawing on relationships with industry colleagues interested in working with her again, Cynthia quickly established her firm’s reputation as a strong collaborative partner with her client’s best interests in mind through a series of successful engagements. Not long after opening its doors, Oculus Partners expanded its consultant-employee base with a number of industry professionals who’d worked with Cynthia in former professional lives.
Today, the firm employs a broad network of highly-experienced consultants, and serves more than 35 different types of clients within the financial services industry.
