Whether your needs are strategic advice, hands on financial modeling, operational execution, business risk assessment, or outsourced or interim management, GIP delivers practical and actionable solutions. 

We prefer to not merely write reports.  Rather, we will follow through and work the steps necessary to address the need to ensure that the response is appropriate and sustainable.

"Over the past twenty five years, I have worked with John Hines in a number of capacities. The first, when he was CFO and subsequently President of a start-up multi-line insurer, where he displayed entrepreneurial spirit and management professionalism in a challenging environment.

After John left corporate life to become an industry consultant, more recently, I solicited John's expertise in due diligence on a sizeable acquisition assignment. In this role, John performed on a timely and insightful basis in providing financial analysis of the project. John and I are regularly in touch in discussing and evaluating insurance investment opportunities, for which his extensive knowledge and honest opinions are highly valued."
