About Emily Bermes


As the CEO of a human capital consulting firm, Emily has devoted her career to helping executives—from Fortune 100 companies to industry-shifting startups—successfully assimilate into new roles, create strong teams and develop cultures that attract and retain the best talent. Combining more than 15 years of experience as a partner level management consultant and executive coach with her background as a quantitative researcher, Emily is a master at creating customized, elegant solutions for the toughest organizational and human capital challenges.

Emily specializes in working with VP through C-level assimilations, primarily in medium and large corporations. She’s successfully assimilated executives across multiple industries, including Bio-tech, Pharma, CPG, Banking, Commodity (all in Fortune 500 environments), as well as Life-sciences, Healthcare, Health Insurance, Technology, Advanced Manufacturing and Mining in the publicly held, mid-cap sector. 

/ Recent Successes /

We successfully assimilated 18 VP and SVP executives at a Fortune 500 financial services organization struggling to decrease their increasingly high executive fail rate. Where the industry fail rate is 50%, this organization’s fail rate is now 0% among those we support .

Emily designed and led a successful culture change initiative for a Fortune 1000 international mining company. Through their work together, Emily helped them dramatically improve their engagement data (they moved from the 3rd percentile to 76th percentile), enhance customer perception and create significantly better financial results—their stock price rose 300% in 3 years.

Emily co-developed a social science research which was published in the peer-reviewed Journal of Social and Personal Relationships which is widely used and sited.
