Firefly Consulting Ranks as One of Austin's Top Women-Owned Businesses for the Second Year in a Row


Texas' Only Female-Owned Lean Six Sigma Consulting Firm Earns Recognition

Austin, TX (PRWEB) November 19, 2015

For the second consecutive year, Austin Business Journal has ranked Firefly Consulting on its list of top 25 women-owned businesses. Competition in this category continues to thrive with the US Census Bureau reporting Texas as having the second highest number of women-owned businesses in the United States. Founded in 2009, the consulting firm specializes in improving business processes using solutions grounded in lean and six sigma methodologies.

Addressing the growing interest in Firefly, Founder and President Kimberly Watson-Hemphill attributes much of the company's success to the qualifications and experience of her consultants.

"Everyone on the team has at least 20 years of experience, representing extensive breadth and depth across multiple industries," said Watson-Hemphill. Most recently the company brought on René Ffrench, formerly of Accenture and BAE Systems, to increase capabilities in manufacturing and supply chain.

As economic indicators continue to show stability, Watson-Hemphill believes executives' appetite for process improvement and innovation will continue to grow.

"The business environment is growing more confident, and as companies transition out of survival mode, long term challenges need to be addressed," said Watson-Hemphill. "Planning for long term growth requires a different strategic focus. We are looking forward to helping our clients address these opportunities in 2016."
