The Confidere Group was launched 10 years ago with one purpose, to build a better world, one leader at a time – serving influential leaders working in complex and challenging environments.
We have had the privilege of serving clients across industries and across the world, with two things in common: they are leading through a time of transition, and they appreciate the value of a highly experienced leader, who has no vested interest in the outcome, sitting alongside as an independent sounding board.
Now we are thrilled to let you know we are lifting our capability for serving you, with the addition to our team of Robbie McDonnell, as CEO of the Australian business. Robbie has sat in the leader’s seat, living and breathing the life of a leader in a business career that spanned the globe.
As one of the founding members of Trading Technologies London in 1998, he was responsible for launching and growing the business across Europe. He subsequently led the APAC business expansion opening offices in Hong Kong, Singapore, Tokyo and Sydney. Most recently, Robbie led global operations from the head office in Chicago and was a key player in building one of the most successful and preeminent brands in banking and the financial futures market.
Robbie started his career in banking with Allied Irish Banks, p.l.c., Dublin before moving to London where he focussed on electronic trading systems in financial markets and technical analysis at Future Source and Dow Jones Markets.
At The Confidere Group, we understand that leaders face both a unique and sometimes universal set of strategic inflection points, challenges and disruptions inside and outside of the business. Robbie understands this because he knows what it’s like to be in the shoes of a leader.
Anthony Howard, the founder of The Confidere Group, will now turn his focus on his two great loves: working as a sounding board to a select number of CEOs; and secondly applying Socratic wisdom to leadership challenges, via our sister company, The Socratic Leader Academy.
