Before EY, Trowbridge was the founder and chief executive officer of Alsbridge, a third-party advisor for outsourcing, benchmarking, and telecommunications transformation.

Under his leadership, Alsbridge established a unique range of consulting and subscription services through four strategic acquisitions that drove a 38 percent compound annual growth rate (CAGR) over five years. Named an Inc. 500 “Fastest-Growing Private Companies in America,” Alsbridge advised clients on more than $155B in outsourcing contracts.
