Strategist • Coach • Speaker
Andrew Ranson knows the right strategy can change everything. He works with clients nationally and internationally to not only see the possibilities, but to implement them. Andrew has been engaged in strategic advisory work for more than 25 years. Prior to founding Andrew Ranson Strategic Consulting in 2018, he served as Executive Vice President for TriCorps Technologies, and Partner with Future Point of View, where he focused on digital transformation strategy. He has also served as a Senior Strategist and Executive Partner with GiANT Partners and then as President of GiANT Capital Fund I, a private international investment subsidiary of GiANT Capital. From conducting organizational strategy development sessions to coaching executives and teams through strategy implementation Andrew is known for listening intently and then cutting through the complexity to extract the essential insights to move a team forward.
During his tenure at Boston Consulting Group (“BCG”) in Hong Kong in the ‘90s, he served major multi-national clients in the cement, medical equipment and petroleum industries, and in New York, where he helped in the early stages of the development of BCG’s global knowledge management database. While his experience spans industries, much of his work for the past decade has been actively consulting with public entity risk pools and other insurance related entities.
He is a magna cum laude graduate of Dartmouth College, where he studied Chinese language and culture and received a Bachelor of Arts in Asian Studies in 1991, and a summa cum laude graduate of Oklahoma Baptist University, where he received his MBA in international business in 2008, and now, in addition to running his consulting practice, he teaches Strategic Management for the Spears School of Business at Oklahoma State University.
In addition to strategy advisory work, Andrew is also an accomplished professional speaker and operatic tenor. At the mic, Andrew has conducted workshops for the Association of Government Risk Pools (AGRiP), and keynotes for NLC-RISC, NAPEO, ISBN, the Oklahoma Manufacturing Alliance, the Enterprise Excellence Group, Jobson VM Summit, Travel Weekly, MMRMA, GiANT’s CEO Growth Network, and the Oklahoma Ethics Consortium. Andrew speaks to audiences across a range of industry sectors and consistently sends them home with at least three practical strategies that can be applied immediately.
On the opera stage, he has performed leading roles with Bronx Opera, New York Chamber Opera, Troupers Light Opera, and Light Opera Oklahoma (LOOK), and extended contracts with San Diego Opera, Opera Colorado, the Pine Mountain Music Festival, and the Waverly Consort. He was also a recent soloist with the Brightmusic Festival, Canterbury Choral Society of Oklahoma City, Christ Church Cathedral in Lexington, Kentucky, and Las Colinas Symphony Orchestra in Las Colinas, Texas.
