The Wall of Ideas

ABOUT US

Expertise, strong relationships and trust

The rubix collaboration was founded in 2020 by Ben Lloyd and Sam Ford. Before Sam retired from Barclays, he was the Accountable Executive for the Strategic & Regulatory Change Portfolio in the Investment Banking Division (IBD).

 

From 2014 to 2017, Ben reported into Sam, and led a high-performing team of contractors and external consultants. The team gained a reputation for repeated, successful delivery of critical front office change initiatives.

In 2016, this formula triggered the original idea for the rubix collaboration - assembling 'SWAT teams' of experienced, high-calibre individuals to help clients solve complex problems.
