Eagle Hill Consulting LLC works with
a range of public, private, and non-prof-it organizations across the nation. The
firm stands out as a truly unconventional consulting firm in a world of large,
traditional consultancies by combining
the proven tools and methodologies
of larger consultancies with the nim-bleness and personalized attention of
a smaller firm. “Our consultants possess an entrepreneurial spirit and bring
energy, initiative and imagination to
solve clients’ business problems,” says
Melissa Jezior, President and CEO of
Eagle Hill Consutling. Jezior sat down
with Consulting to discuss the firm’s
outstanding 335 percent growth rate.
Consulting: What were the main
factors that contributed to your
firm’s exceptional growth?
Jezior: Eagle Hill is a family-run com-
pany that has inspired a workplace
culture and ‘unconventional consult-
ing’ approach that is rooted in col-
laboration and integrity in all of our
dealings. Our clients feel like we’re
part of their team. Our collaborative
culture bleeds into how we work with
clients, listening, sharing ideas, re-
ceiving feedback and even exploring
unconventional solutions. As a result,
100 percent of Eagle Hill’s clients
say they would work with us again.
Over the past two years, Eagle Hill
has tripled its number of employees.
In a recent employee survey, 96 per-
cent of employees tell us they enjoy
working for Eagle Hill and 95 per-
cent would refer the firm to a friend.
Consulting: How is this year
shaping up for your firm?
Jezior: We are very pleased with our
2016 results to date and see strong
momentum in our business. We expect to exceed the exceptional growth
we experienced in 2015. We are on
track to have 200 employees by the
end of 2016. We also expect to see
60 percent revenue growth, and have
secured several significant long-term
contracts with new clients.
Consulting: How would you
describe your firm’s outlook for
2017? Where do you see the
Jezior: Looking ahead, we are confident that we will continue to grow our
business across all our industries (
Borders & Transportation, Financial Services, and Media, Communications,
& Technology) and will continue to
explore new markets through our ‘in-
cubator’ program. By staying true to
our strengths, Eagle Hill expects an-
other significant growth year in 2017.
Consulting: What would you
say are your firm’s biggest
challenges in 2017?
Jezior: Even though we’re a small
business, we compete for both talent
and business with top-tier consulting firms. Undoubtedly, those firms
have the resources and the budget to
provide extensive training programs
for their employees. Our employees
have expressed interest in more formal training options. We have taken
several actions over the past year to
meet our employees’ request, including hiring a full-time Learning and
Development Coordinator, standing
up an employee-driven training team,
expanding access to self-paced, online learning, and developing new
in-person training courses.
Consulting: What does being
named one of Consulting’s
Fastest Growing Firms mean to
your firm, your employees and
Jezior: Being named one of Consulting’s Fastest Growing Firms serves
as a positive validation to our current
employees and clients that we have a
bright future. We are well on our way
toward achieving our goal of 10x
growth in ten years… and still a best
place to work.
