The ability to unleash the potential of Partners in Performance clients is at the heart of our business. Leaders like Eriks Ciguzis recognise and embrace that mission at their core, and in the process, end up unleashing their own potential as well. It makes life and work rewarding for everyone involved and it never gets old.
Eriks has been consulting for over 15 years, including three years with Bain & Company before coming to Partners in Performance. He speaks English, Latvian and Russian and works throughout a variety of industries including finance, mining and metals, retail, energy and utilities. His ultimate goal is to deliver tangible and efficient results through cost reduction and capital optimisation. Eriks also has a significant amount of experience with private equity clients on commercial due diligence and identifying value-creation opportunities. He has travelled to CIS, Eastern and Western Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia.
Eriks loves cooking, but don’t expect to find him following a recipe. Putting his own spin on his food makes it way more interesting and tasteful, especially when pairing it with wine and enjoying with family and friends. Eriks can also be found indulging in TV classics like the Sopranos. His quote to live by is “per aspera ad astra” (Latin for “through hardship to the stars”).
Culture like that, I believe gives people freedom. Freedom to be themselves, to speak up when things go wrong, to challenge and to contribute. I love that, and am immensely proud and humbled that I have had a chance to be a part of its development.ERIKS, DIRECTOR, PARTNERS IN PERFORMANCE
