By 1992, Dave Peterson had spent too long working on the road in Big 5 consulting. He had spent too long in a role that overcharged clients for work that was managed without compassion or respect for the long-term success of the organization. He wanted something different. Armed with a kitchen table and three computers in an attic office, Dave created North Highland.

Now over 3,000 employees in 70+ offices worldwide, North Highland has become a reality more powerful than Dave could have ever imagined. Companies turn to North Highland because we do things differently. We don’t sell quick-fix solutions. We are not in it for the glory. We are enablers of excellence, a powerful, global integration of industry know-how, design, technology and data.
