Pinnacle Associates arose from the experiences of its founder, Phil McNee, in 2007, after over sixteen years working in regulation, industry and global consulting.

Phil became frustrated by the confusing and conflicting messages around Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Corporate Governance (CG) and also by the widely varying approach of large consultancies to their Clients. He also became despondent with multiple, ineffective and inefficient Health, Safety, Environmental and Quality (HSEQ) management systems in many organisations. After spending over six years in industry, Phil recognised the significant limitations of traditional auditing techniques and the plethoria and ever growing list of standards and frameworks all fighting for recognition.

Setting the scene

All too often, the common reaction to solve the next risk management problem is to introduce yet another standard or framework to be assessed against - more fog!!!!

The solution is simple and straightforward - a framework to manage all these issues based on stakeholder needs and business performance.
