We Are Different

Every good story starts with a simple idea.

In 1992, Dave Peterson, a consultant for a "Big 5" firm, had an epiphany. A great consultancy did not have to be a big, centrally located firm, flying its consultants out to distant client locations. It did not have to be a small, local boutique either. He had a better model in mind. North Highland was built around combining the best of both types of firms. And now, we are a firm that keeps on growing, and bringing big ideas to our clients.


"From the moment I joined North Highland, I’ve been treated as nothing less than an owner and valued member of the firm, encouraged to challenge how we operate and to bring fresh new ideas around how we serve our clients. Our motto, and the culture it creates, enables great people to do great work for great clients."
