# 10 LARGE Company

North Highland, the No. 10 ranked large company on Florida Trend’s Best Companies To Work For In Florida list for 2017, is an employee-owned management consulting firm. The Florida office is led by Market Lead and Managing Director, Barbara Ray.

“At North Highland we work together differently — with our clients, each other and our communities. We embrace diversity of thought and foster collaboration and caring. I can honestly say I’ve never worked with a group of individuals as talented, smart and caring as North Highlanders are,” says Ray.

North Highland is a local-first model, growing its footprint in the Florida market since the late ’90s. Orlando was the firm’s first office location in Florida, following the opening of headquarters in Atlanta. The local-first approach allows North Highland to establish and create strong roots in its local communities and apply a global reach by tapping into the deep expertise that resides across the firm.

The majority of North Highland’s work is with repeat clients. The firm works with more than 100 Florida businesses and organizations, including Fortune 500 companies, state government and leading nonprofits. With a bias for action and a human-centered approach, North Highland works with its clients to solve challenges and generate innovative solutions across the spectrum of consulting.

“We solve problems, and we make a real impact. We all want to do right by each other and our clients,” says Ray. “The people I work alongside are highly motivated people of integrity, and when we come together, we can do amazing things.”

In addition to the Orlando office, North Highland also goes to market in Tallahassee, Jacksonville, Tampa and South Florida. Industry expertise spans entertainment, government, health care, hospitality and vacation ownership, nonprofits, retail, transportation and utilities.
