Born in 356 B.C., Alexander the Great ascended to the throne of Macedonia at the age of 18. Within 8 years, he had defeated the mighty Persian empire with a patient strategy that gave his campaign its best chance at success.
Early in his career, Alexander developed a weapon that would change warfare. The sarissa was a long spear, nearly 20 feet high by some accounts. Warriors would hold it with two hands to provide maximum effectiveness. But, this new fighting stance left them vunerable to counterattacks without the ability to hold their own shields. Alexander adapted, creating a new formation to protect the sarissa-wielding warriors who would lead him to world domination.
Alexander learned the lessons that we impart to our clients every day. Even the greatest weapon can be a strategic risk if managed poorly. Sarissa Partners exists to make sure your best asset can never be used against you... so you can take over your world.
