Every good story starts with a single idea.

In 1992, Dave Peterson, a talented 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. Neither did it have to be a small, local boutique. He had a better model in mind. North Highland was built around this radically different approach. Two decades later, North Highland is an employee-owned, global consulting firm with local teams in the US, UK and several other countries.
