The firm is active in a number of industries, including: Energy & Utilities, Financial Services, Healthcare, Life Sciences, Manufacturing, Media, Entertainment & Communications, Public Sector, Retail & Consumer Products, and Transportation.
North Highland ranks fifth on Consulting Magazine's 2014 Best Firms to Work For list. This marks the eighth consecutive year that North Highland has been in the top 5.
In 1992, Dave Peterson, a consultant for a "Big 5" firm, decided that a great consultancy did not have to be a big, centrally located firm, flying its consultants out to distant client locations. Neither did it have to be a small, local boutique. He had a different model in mind, one that would have consultants work with clients in their home town.
More than two decades later, North Highland is an employee-owned, worldwide consulting firm with local teams in the US, UK and several other countries.
Employees of North Highland are well-regarded for their passion for the company. This is most often attributed to the fact that every employee is an owner of the firm. As an employee-owned company that focuses on local relationships, North Highland has built a reputation for caring for each other, its clients, and the communities in which its employees live.
North Highland is part of Cordence Worldwide, a global management consulting alliance with over 2,600 consultants in 50 offices around the world.
Cordence Worldwide offers global coverage with eight principal offices in the USA, Europe and Australia and an International Fortune 500 client base. Cordence Worldwide was founded by North Highland, Horvath & Partners and Oresys. Other member companies include Bonfiglioli, Twynsta Gudde and Alfa Consulting.
