Core values are more than just words; they express our deepest beliefs and  guide our behavior. We honor God, creation, and commitments. We serve others both in our personal and professional lives. We see value in living with discipline


Core purpose is what drives us each and every day; to develop high-performing people, teams, and organizations.

Listen to advice and accept instruction, and in the end you will be wise. -Proverbs 19:20


Pro-Motion Consulting was founded in 2008 by Phil Harwood after retiring from a successful management career that spanned over three decades involving a number of leadership positions. Since 2008, he has founded three businesses and acquired one other.

Pro-Motion Consulting is focused on helping business owners and leadership teams greatly improve the overall health of their organizations by implementing a number of specific, proven best practices for high-performing organizations.

When our clients are ready for the inevitable transition to occur, whether this involves selling to a competitor or to a family member, we are there to support them every step of the way, including brokering, negotiations, and working with their legal teams to ensure a smooth and successful transition. We also help our clients acquire other businesses.

Needless to say, a business that is more attractive to purchase is also more attractive as an employer. As we work with our clients to improve marketability, we are also improving organizational culture, profitability, and providing a better work environment for everyone involved.

Phil is a graduate of Michigan State University (B.A. Marketing 1984, E.M.B.A. 2004). He is actively engaged in the professional landscape and snow management industries. His other companies include GrowTheBench.com and SnowfightersInstitute.com.

Pro-Motion Consulting has twice (2010, 2017) been the recipient of the Snow Industry Commitment Award, presented by the Snow & Ice Management Association (SIMA), in recognition of outstanding commitment to the snow & ice management industry. In addition, two of our clients have received the coveted CEO of the Year Award from SIMA.
