“My best ghSMART moment to date was helping a newly elected U.S Senator make two of his most critical senior hires.”

“The generosity and collective sense of ownership demonstrated by my ghSMART colleagues is reflective of a key aspect that makes us the very best professional services firm in the world.”

“In the past year, we have seen business leaders develop life-saving vaccines, commit to improving social justice and equity, or simply pledge to create more inclusive environments for their employees. As advisors, our role is to help them evaluate the impact of their intended actions while supporting them in leading positive change.”

the experience
Our clients are influential leaders who make the world a better place. We proudly serve the CEOs of the largest private equity firms, Fortune 500 companies, and highly-respected non-profits. What binds us together is our shared belief that a great leader, more than anything else, elevates the quality of life of the individual, group, and society. We constantly strive to help one another – our colleagues and our clients – become the best versions of themselves.
Our PhDs and MBAs bring with them the specialized skills they’ve developed as top performers at global consulting practices and corporations. People succeed here because they have that rare ability to build deep trusted advisor relationships with our clients’ most senior leaders.
We are a “flat” organization that values initiative and meritocracy over bureaucracy and tenure. Our decisions and actions are guided by our Credo and Values, which include “When in Doubt, Lead” and “Generosity & Gratitude.”
At ghSMART, we think about work differently than other consultant practices where competition is rife, hours are long, and culture is in short supply. We offer highly competitive compensation but also provide our people flexibility to define their own priorities, client lists and hours. We ask you to choose how much work you want to do and give you the support and mentorship you need to flourish.
ghSMART is 100% employee-owned. Our team members have the opportunity to buy and sell our stock, if they choose. Our objectivity is not influenced by any parent corporation, outside investor, or public market shareholder. We are an independent, entrepreneurial consulting firm in charge of our own destiny.
Don’t just hear it from us. See our top rankings for performance and employee satisfaction on sites like Vault and Forbes.
Because of the access and impact we have with clients, we seek exceptional consultants and PhDs who have high IQ and EQ, and a passion for people issues. For functional roles, we seek top performers with deep experience in their relevant field, and a scrappy, can-do attitude. Our recruitment process includes multiple interviews, a SmartAssessment, a case study, and gives you plenty of time for you to get to know our team members.
ghSMART acknowledges that bias, prejudice, and violence against Black people and other underrepresented groups exist in the United States and around the world. We believe a key part of the solution is leadership—on all of our parts, in the public sector as well as in the private sector. We believe that a great leader, more than anything else, elevates the quality of life of the individual, group, and society. Not satisfied with the status quo, ghSMART is increasing its commitment of resources and time to hiring and developing more diverse leaders, including leaders of color, within our firm, within our clients, and around the world. We stand together with anti-racist people from all backgrounds, taking action to improve the state of freedom and justice for all.
