Roger Moore – Chief Executive Officer
“RGIS spent five years developing its web software business with The Business Harbour supplying all our Finance, Administration and HR services.
The Business Harbour and its open door policy were key in helping us learn the working models that work and do not work. They spoke our language and together we found a management formula that is hard to beat.
The combination of the experience of the founding partner, Gina Empson, and her key employees, and their willingness to meet our requirements made this a very healthy and successful collaboration.
Our business grew and we could have insourced the tasks The Business Harbour was handling but we chose to continue working in close partnership with them. We are the client and this is what makes the difference with The Business Harbour.”
