Our Washington, D.C. office opened in 2003, in the first year landed four major clients, and year over year has experienced 50% growth or more. Our client base has grown significantly in the last several years through grass-roots relationship building and now serves a market that spans the entire metro area, from the District to Maryland and five Virginia counties.
The exemplary consulting service and organic growth of new business are just two examples of the North Highland culture at work in our D.C. office. Bolstering the entrepreneurial and employee ownership spirit of the company, our entire office is involved in annual planning, including setting goals and determining initiatives to reach those goals. We value employee input whether it's in reference to an individual career path or to office-wide initiatives such as developing market-centric service areas or increasing revenue and profitability targets.
