Our Team

Elizabeth Were

Founder and Managing Partner

“I get easily frustrated when staff and organizations believe inefficiencies are an inherent part of work and over time get comfortable with poor performance. This is why I founded SORT – an enterprise focused on implementing simple systems to help leaders eliminate waste and build high performance teams while maximizing the resources at their fingertips.”

Liz brings professional experience in project management and process transformation having worked with development organizations, Microfinance Institutions, Government and Social enterprises in projects spanning new product development, mobile app development, supply chain, customer acquisition and investment due diligence.
