We are grateful for North Group’s rich family business experience, and deeply value their professionalism and trust.”

“We were very thankful for the insight offered to us through the organizational assessment North Group conducted for our accounting firm. As partners of the firm, it brought to light areas we will focus on moving forward, as well as reinforced positive aspects of our firm. Additionally, our most important objective, which was to hire a key individual for the future of our firm as a result of the process with North Group, was indeed met. It gave us a substantial comfort level with our hiring decision to know that North Group felt the candidate was a cultural and organizational “fit.” The consultants were excellent to work with throughout the process through their professionalism and direct communication of key issues. Thank you North Group!”

“Our family ownership transition, which started many years before but came to fruition in 2008, was smooth – both in terms of the owners and within the newly appointed management team. The value of support is somewhat indescribable because daily tasks, decisions and actions may, deep down, stem from a conversation or meeting with a mentor at North Group. The family owners group, which Dave was a member of for many years, was valuable to him as he established relationships with other local business owners, gained knowledge of small business management, and witnessed other ownership transitions.”

“We utilized North Group in the selection and hiring of a Chief Executive Officer. Our business model is somewhat unique, so finding a leader with the right match of skill sets, values, and leadership character was critical to our strategic vision. Working with North Group, we were able to articulate an accurate profile of the desired leader. North Group’s screening and assessment processes were incredibly valuable in evaluating candidates and identifying the best match for our organization. They demonstrated an understanding of organizational and human dynamics which elevated their work above a typical search process. The entire project took longer than anticipated, with several challenges along the way, but North Group’s team maintained a high level of support and proved to be valued counsel and partners in this process.”

“North Group agreed to work with me through the process of selling my business as I approached retirement age. From start to finish, I was so very impressed with their professionalism, care, and hard work. They constantly checked-in with me about how things were progressing, and just as importantly, they touched base to encourage me and ask how I was doing throughout the process. North Group is the company you’d want working with you in whatever phase of business you find you need assistance. Above all, knowing and experiencing their values was very encouraging.”
