North Highland Austin

Since opening our offices in Dallas and Houston, it was only a matter of time until we set up shop in Austin. In addition to being #3 on Consulting Magazine's "Best Firms to Work For" since 2007, Texas Monthly Magazine recognized North Highland as a top tier firm to work for in Texas for 5 consecutive years. In 2016, North Highland was rated the #2 company to work for in the Large Employer Category by the Texas SHRM.

austin leadership

I love that we solve problems and that we have real impact. The people I work alongside are highly motivated, people of integrity that have the same objectives as me. We all want to do right by each other and our clients. I can honestly say, having had a number of other roles in my life, this is the first one where I feel like I can help make a difference with my clients and the outcomes they are seeking.

In the Community

We want to create sustainable, long-term economic empowerment in the communities in which we work and live. To do that, we support projects and organizations that tackle financial stability, family sustaining employment and housing holistically, because our research shows these core areas can have a bigger and longer term impact. Our annual Day of Giving Back has been another way we have invested in local communities, doing everything from preparing meals, teaching professional workshops, painting playgrounds and more.
