Hank Harris spent most of his career in a national management consulting and investment banking firm, specialized in working with privately held businesses. He rose to become CEO and Chairman of that firm, where he still maintains an affiliation and many friendships. His joining of the Ward and Smith Business Consulting team is somewhat of a "passion project," presenting an opportunity to help closely held business owners within his home state of North Carolina, and to do it with his friends at Ward and Smith, P.A.
Hank's background gives him a unique perspective. He has seen the inner workings of literally hundreds of successful businesses, understands the mind of entrepreneurs, and has a deep understanding of the issues unique to privately held businesses. CEOs call on Hank to be part of their strategic planning, help with succession planning, or consult on family business matters.
Over the years, Hank has published an extensive array of articles and written papers on business and management, and has also written three books on those subjects. Hank has a Bachelor of Science from the University of Richmond and a Master of Business Administration from Virginia Commonwealth University. He is a certified management consultant, past member of the American Arbitration Association, and Association of Management Consulting firms. He sits on the Board of Directors of several major companies, relishes the opportunity to engage private business.
