We are a company that uses its own experience and coordinates with our international partners to produce a desired outcome for our clients. Rather than being an expert on all things, Pincer Global Consulting uses its decades of experience doing business overseas to ask the right questions and assemble the right partners to accomplish an objective.
In attempting to do business outside of one’s normal market, one of the biggest challenges is being aware of what you don’t know in order to ask the right questions to construct the right solution. Apart from merely analyzing the financial implications of a specific business transaction, one of the key pitfalls that businesses in the international arena often fall into is not understanding the economic, political, or business culture into which they are engaging. This can lead to costly mistakes, and sometimes even failure of the entire venture. Avoiding mistakes entirely in a complex international environment is unrealistic. Our goal is help you minimize these mistakes, thereby saving you money, stress, and maybe even failure.
In the United States, and to a large extent in Western Europe and Japan, the legal system is fairly transparent, although sometimes complex. In many other parts of the world, this is not the case. While there are promising markets for your products or a more inexpensive supplier, the pitfalls for the unwary of operating in this environment are many. Some of these can include dishonest business partners, corrupt officials, unstable political/legal environments, unfair court systems, and can also include the physical safety of you and your team during overseas visits. Pincer Global Consulting will analyze your overseas foray from a financial, political, economic, cultural, and security perspective. We will reach out to our partners and search out new ones to construct a solution that will accomplish the goal. Far from being report writers, we think of ourselves as coordinators that will work alongside you until the goal is accomplished.
For companies that focus wholly on the domestic market, Pincer Global Consulting is able to leverage its years of experience in commercial banking & consulting to help you better manage and grow your business. Not only are we able to look at your business from the perspective of a commercial bank, but we can leverage our experience in working with different kinds of businesses to help you put best practices into yours. Whether you are in a turnaround situation or looking to expand into the next city or state, we have seen hundreds of businesses, many with challenges similar to yours.
In our practice, we delve down into the minutiae in order to obtain a complete picture of your business. Only by understanding your business operationally and financially can we work with you to plan and execute a strategy. As with our internationally focused clients, we envision our role as working alongside you as part of your team on an ongoing basis, rather than simply putting together a plan for you to execute on your own.
Give us a call and let’s see how we can help.

Chris Angle has spent the last 30 years in several different industries including commercial lending, international logistics, and agriculture. After spending 16 years analyzing businesses for banks, Chris decided to open a company that would take his experience analyzing & interacting with business owners as well his international experience & connections, and use them to help companies looking to expand overseas. In addition to overseas experience, Chris’ educational background in International Relations and International Economics & Finance and the fact that he speaks three languages (English, German, Italian) (and a small amount of Russian) makes him uniquely experienced to establish rapport with potential overseas business partners.
