Success in business today requires a combination of big picture thinking, and an ability to deal meticulously with the detail. At Bowman Gilfillan, we believe that an appreciation of the big picture, formed by defining ideas, needs to be backed-up by a clear understanding of the detail, the execution of which is vital in managing risk and successfully turning an inspired vision into business headlines.

“I have walked that long road to freedom. I have tried not to falter; I have made missteps along the way. But I have discovered the secret that after climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb. I have taken a moment here to rest, to steal a view of the glorious vista that surrounds me, to look back on the distance I have come. But I can only rest for a moment, for with freedom come responsibilities, and I dare not linger, for my long walk is not ended.”
― Nelson Mandela
