Why did you choose consulting as a career?

For fifteen years I maintained the accounting function of my family's consulting engineering firm. Having daily contat with the firm's clients and industry colleagues provided the foundation upon which I built my career. After earning my MBA, I found the greatest satisfaction working with people, identifying challenges and building solutions.
