How we got our name

While the kestrel is North America’s smallest falcon, it is a fierce and intense predator. It is extremely adept at hunting, and is also one of the most elegant and colorful of all raptors. Like the kestrel, we are a small, specialized consulting firm with an intensity for getting the job done well—and right.
