about this office
North Highland added the Minneapolis office with the acquisition of a local firm that had been working with clients in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area for 10 years. The region's strong concentration of financial services, retail, life sciences and healthcare organizations, as well as state government and higher education institutions, is a strong match for North Highland's experience base and the local team's consulting expertise. This combination brings a global perspective and a widely known local delivery model to support clients with strategy, business process, information technology, change management and many other management consulting services. It is also named as the #6 Best Place to Work in the Twin Cities for 2014.
