​Four Rivers - what's in a name?


​The name Four Rivers is derived from the family name of our Director - Quadrio (quad - four and rio - river). Bernini's  Fountain of the Four Rivers (Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi) is located in the Piazza Navona in Rome.The Four River Gods represent the four great rivers of the world as they were known in the 1600's. The fountain symbolizes the convergence of rivers and the uniting of cultures.  Four Rivers Consulting works across all cultures and with all sectors, and is founded on the four pillars of competence, creativity, collaboration and certainity.  Like Bernini's Fountain, we always exceed expectations.
