Our Values

SECOIA is a word creation of SECurity and sequOIA, the impressive trees. They are upright, firm, pointing upwards like arrows. Sequoias don't stand alone - they are held firm and stable by interwoven roots with fellow sequoias.

The addon of "Executive Consultants" underlines that we like to work together with our clients to share responsibility in implementing the decided strategy.

The logo suggests the global reach, the positive, upwards developments achieved and working as a team of SECOIAs.
