Management consultancy Eagle Hill Consulting has hired Michael Frantz as a Senior Director and head of the firm’s Seattle office. A 23-year consulting industry veteran, Frantz joins Eagle Hill from North Highland, where he was a Principal.

Eagle Hill is a woman-owned, boutique management consulting firm offering services in business strategy, organizational transformation, human capital transformation, process improvement, program management, and change management. For over 12 years, the firm has been advising organizations in the financial services, health & life sciences, technology, media & entertainment, and public sectors. The firm is based out of Washington, DC, with additional offices in Boston and Seattle.

The firm has grown revenues at an average rate of 74% since 2010 and racked up a pile of awards, including ranking as one of Forbes’ Best US Management Consulting Firms (2016-2018), Vault’s Consulting 50 (2016-2018), and Washington Business Journal’s Best Places to Work (2010-2011, 2016-2018).

The firm links its success to its excellent workplace culture – which is built on the core values of ‘collaboration, family, and fun’ – and its elite human capital, with 70% of its leadership holding graduate degrees, and 80% having Big Four (Deloitte, EY, PwC, KPMG) experience. The firm also uses the rigorous Topgrading interview process to make sure they hire ‘only the best.’Eagle Hill Consulting brings in Michael Frantz to head Seattle officeEagle Hill’s new Seattle office head – Michael Frantz – has apparently passed the firm’s exacting recruitment gauntlet to take the reins of the company’s newest office as a Senior Director. Frantz, who joins Eagle Hill from consultancy North Highland, has more than two decades of experience in management consulting. He replaces Jordan Henry as Seattle lead.

"Mike is a seasoned, respected management consulting leader. We're fortunate he is now a part of the Eagle Hill family, and he will play a critical role in delivering unconventional client service and driving our continued business growth," commented Melissa Jezior, Eagle Hill president and chief executive officer.

Frantz was a Principal at North Highland from 2015-2018, joining the firm after ACME Business Consulting – which he joined in 2013 – was acquired by North Highland in 2015. Before that, he was a Managing Director with consulting firm Point B, where he worked for 13 years. Franz started his consulting career with Deloitte Consulting, where he was a Manager from 1995-2000.

According to Eagle Hill, their new Seattle office leader has a strong ‘track record of delivering tangible results for clients.’ Additionally, Frantz has spent much of his career in Seattle, and as such has deep roots and a strong network of contacts in the area that will help him expand the consultancy’s growing footprint.

Jezior added, "Equally important to his track record of success, Mike is aligned with Eagle Hill's core values. I see this as fundamental to leading teams and delivering business results."

Frantz holds an MBA in Finance and Marketing from the University of Washington. He also has an BA in Japan Regional Studies from the University of Washington, as well as a BA in Economics from the University of Michigan.
