We’re delighted to announce that Danielle Croucher and Ben Gower, both Principals at Elixirr, will be joining our Partner team in January 2023. Hiring from within forms one of our four growth pillars, meaning we invest in and nurture the growth of our people. These promotions are an example of the impact this has on our team; we mean it when we say, ‘our newest recruit will one day lead our firm’.  

Danielle Croucher

Danielle joined Elixirr as a Manager in 2019. Within nine months she was promoted to Principal – our fastest promotion between these grades – and after just three years she has made Partner. Danielle has played an integral role expanding our US presence, which saw over 100% growth in FY 20 and FY 21. Based in San Francisco, she has led a transformation program for one of the firm’s largest accounts, a US healthcare insurance provider, for the past two years. As Partner, Danielle will continue to scale our US business, both commercially delivering clients’ strategic visions and culturally by growing the team. In a traditionally male-dominated industry, Danielle has always been passionate about mentoring women in consulting. This has already had a huge impact on our team, and as Partner, her impact will only be stronger.

Ben Gower

Ben joined Elixirr in 2015 as an Analyst having previously worked for PwC and as a secondary school teacher in some of London’s toughest schools. He is the second in the firm to progress from Analyst to Partner. Ben’s expertise lie in helping organisations to set and realise market winning strategies. He has led major transformation projects in multiple geographies with some of our biggest clients. He relocated to the US to grow Elixirr’s core team before returning to the UK in 2019 to lead Elixirr’s strategy and technology transformation work with major insurers and a range of UN agencies. He is passionate about empowering clients and his teams with the ability to make a positive impact every day. As a Partner, Ben will continue to lead our strategy, transformation and innovation work, enabling our clients to connect to the latest thinking and technology needed to adapt and disrupt in the digital era.

Stephen Newton, CEO and Founder at Elixirr, commented:

I’m so proud to welcome two more of our own into the Partner team, Dani and Ben. Both have demonstrated exceptional talent, Dani in the US, and Ben working with one of our largest global accounts. It has always been so important to me that Elixirr is a firm that rewards its people when they are deserving of it. So, I’m very happy to give these two recognition for the great work that they have done and will continue to do. Congratulations both!

Danielle Croucher commented:

As a Partner, I’m really looking forward to continuing to solve tough challenges for my clients and deliver solutions that really address global issues in new and exciting ways. Something I’ve found most rewarding during my career is the development of the people around me; as a young female Partner, I’m also passionate about using my platform to mentor the next generation of female leaders within the firm.

Ben Gower commented:

I’m incredibly proud to be part of the Partner team at Elixirr – a firm that empowers its people from day one to use their creativity, diligence and expertise to deliver fantastic results for our clients. By equipping our teams with a true ownership mentality, we are able to build deep relationships with our clients – giving them the advice they need to hear, not just what they want to hear. I look forward to introducing more companies to Elixirr’s unique form of consulting and being part of the team leading Elixirr’s meteoric rise.

Danielle and Ben’s commitment to helping our clients, and passion for mentoring our junior grades, is evident through the exceptional results they produce, which help bring us closer to our vision of building the best consulting firm in the world.

Congratulations, Danielle and Ben.
