North Highland Announces Changes To The Board Of Directors

ATLANTA, Nov. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, global consulting company North Highland announces that board member Michael W. Trapp  has been elected non-executive chairman of the board, succeeding company co-founder and current chairman, Dave Peterson.  As chairman, Trapp's experience as a longtime member of North Highland's board, coupled with his extensive experience advising global companies will further support North Highland's international growth and expansion.  

"We thank Dave for 21 years of service, seeing North Highland grow from an Atlanta startup to a worldwide consultancy of more than 2,500 employees," said Dan Reardon, CEO of North Highland and Highland Worldwide. "His vision for North Highland was to create a different kind of consultancy, where employees felt ownership not only over their career, but their personal life as well. This culture, so rare in our industry, is what has allowed North Highland to flourish in today's marketplace. Peterson will continue to serve as a company board member and support North Highland's unique consultancy model.  With Mike as board chair, he and our other internationally experienced board members are positioned to help company management think through the issues that come with global expansion," said Reardon. "We would like to thank Mike for assuming the expanded responsibilities of chairman; he is familiar with our company's culture and also brings a vast amount of large company board experience that we have been leveraging."

In 1992, Peterson co-founded North Highland believing that the company would serve clients locally with broad and deep consulting expertise and provide employee ownership unmatched in traditional professional partnerships. This innovative business model enabled North Highland to become a significant player in the consulting industry, first in the southeast, then nationally, now globally.  The unique service commitment to clients embraced by the employee-owners of North Highland empowers high quality service delivery and builds long-lasting client relationships.
