We continue to have great successes working with companies facing growth challenges that want to significantly improve their operational performance.

Quickly following her recognition as a finalist at Austin Business Journal’s annual Profiles in Power awards ceremony, Kimberly Watson-Hemphill’s team collected another accolade. Firefly Consulting, the management consulting firm she founded in 2009, was identified as a Top Women-Owned Business for the fourth consecutive year.

A Force on Austin’s Business Scene

On August 24th at the JW Marriot, the Austin Business Journal hosted a luncheon to celebrate the diverse group of women at the top of their industry in Austin’s business and not-for-profit community. In a state that leads in the number of women-owned ventures, the event annually attracts several hundred attendees, including this year’s 85 nominees, their co-workers, friends, and family members. Nominees were drawn from a variety of sectors: from banking to healthcare, real estate to education technology.

On being selection as a 2018 finalist, Watson-Hemphill had this to say: “Austin is a great city to grow our firm. This room is full of inspiring women leaders.”

Another Year Making the Grade

September brought a renewed year of recognition for her firm, Firefly Consulting, as a top player in its hometown of Austin, TX. With origins in Lean Six Sigma as well as more traditional organizational assessment and consulting work, 2017 has been notable for its breadth of project types. “We continue to have great successes working with companies facing growth challenges that want to significantly improve their operational performance,” notes Watson-Hemphill. Industries on this year’s roster include financial services, manufacturing and supply chain, and healthcare.

Reflecting on the firm’s continued achievement, Watson-Hemphill points to her team’s strong reputation for success: “I can draw a straight line from every accolade directly to our highly experienced team. They are committed to driving results for our clients, every time.”
