Our Origin Story

Our Origin Story


Our Origin Story

Anthony, the Founder and Managing Director of Blueridge Advisors, grew up in Virginia near the Blue Ridge Mountains. The mountains were always in the background throughout his years as a child, and provided a constant sense of strength, beauty, and vitality in his life. Mountains also represent resilience, dedication, and rising to meet the challenges in life and in business, which is why their depiction best represents us and what we do.
After working as a search consultant and observing how other search firms dealt with searches and transitions for their clients, Anthony knew something needed to change. Firms often submit a rushed handful of names, then move on to the next job without advising their clients in the decision making process.
He founded Blueridge knowing that his clients need more than a list of names. During this difficult time of transition, clients need help connecting all the dots from a consultant and adviser who provides open, honest, direct, and straightforward guidance and recommendations, giving them the knowledge and confidence they need to make the right decision. Anthony takes the time to get to know each organization so deeply that he is able to alleviate their stress and confusion, and open up pathways to long-term solutions – and that’s the difference that sets Blueridge Advisors apart from other firms.
