And that even when the right employees are in place, many companies lack the crucial mid-management layer needed to drive employee performance and process improvements.

Hugo was created with the high-growth startup in mind. We custom build or augment existing operations teams for companies in scaling mode, leaving founders and senior management to focus on what matters most: growth.Role Overview
