ATLANTA and MINNEAPOLIS, Jan. 6, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Global consulting firm North Highland today announced its expansion into the Midwest United States with the acquisition of Insight Solutions Group, Inc., a Minneapolis-based management consulting firm. The acquisition marks the establishment of North Highland's twentieth U.S. office.

Insight Solutions Group is a provider of strategic assessment and planning, project and program management and analysis, and management consulting services. Its clients have included leading medical device companies and healthcare providers, consumer retailers, financial institutions and higher education institutions, as well as both state and foreign governments, for over a decade. It will begin conducting business under the North Highland name beginning in January 2011.

"Insight has established itself as the go-to management consulting firm in the Midwest for strategic planning, business process improvement, operations, program and project management, and information technology services," said Michael Lee, President of North Highland. "Bringing them into our global company fits well with our vision of bringing the best and brightest strategic advisors into our company, and gives North Highland an established presence in the Minneapolis/St Paul market."

"We're excited to be joining North Highland," said Robert Etten, founder of Insight. "Their independent approach to consulting dovetails nicely with our business philosophy and provides us with an opportunity to leverage the resources of a highly successful multi-national management consulting firm. We look forward to providing our clients the same top-quality services, and expanded new services, under the North Highland banner."

North Highland is ranked third on Consulting Magazine's 2010 list of "Best Firms to Work For," marking its fourth consecutive year in the publication's top four. North Highland's consistently high ranking is due, in part, to its employee value proposition of "own your life; own your career; own your company" and its unique local model of client services via its 47 offices around the world. The firm builds strong local businesses because its 2,200 global consultants live and work where their clients do, a unique model that contributes to overall employee satisfaction and retention rates.
