Red Badger was born and developed by Cain, Stu and Dave in 2010. They had a shared ambition to create a business that turned the traditional consulting model on its head: no sales team; no RFP processes, just great people doing great work that focused on quality, value and collaboration. So they left their jobs to turn the dream into reality and set up Red Badger in Cain’s bedroom. We are digital transformation experts who innovate and deliver.
