Unparalleled innovation.
Flawless execution.
Transformative business value.

An agile innovation and lean product development consulting firm
Transforming growing businesses into global technology product leaders


I'm Francis Potter.

I founded the Hathersage Group -- named after the quaint English village where my grandparents lived -- in 2010 after leaving a VP of Engineering position in Silicon Valley. 

Executives come to us when their product vision exceeds their team's capacity. Or they're afraid of opportunities slipping away because they lack the technology. Or maybe they are tired of developers who don't listen, don't understand their business, take too long, or disappear.

Our approach is called Vision to Execution. We listen carefully to each client's unique needs and goals, then provide exactly the level and type of service you need to succeed.

We've helped Fortune 500 comanies (TIAA, AXA Group, and RR Donnelley), consumer firms (Cost Plus World Market, The Honest Company), tech startups (Babylist, Parakeet Systems), and nonprofits (US Hang Gliding and Paragliding Association, the SETI Institute).

Maybe we can help you. Please get in touch.
