Core values are more than just words; they express our deepest beliefs and  guide our behavior. Guided by Biblical principles, we honor God, creation, and commitments, we serve others in our personal and professional lives, and we value discipline to live with intention and to make a difference.  


Core purpose is our mission. It is what drives us each and every day. Our core purpose is to develop high-performing people, teams, and organizations. In doing so, we will improve the health of our client organizations, drive profitability, and enhance value.

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


Pro-Motion Consulting, Inc. was founded in 2008 by Phil Harwood after a successful management career that spanned over three decades involving a variety of leadership positions.

Phil is a management consultant, speaker, author, writer, and blogger, with a passion for helping business owners increase the value of their businesses in preparation for sale or transition to the next generation and facilitating buy/sell transactions.

Pro-Motion Consulting, Inc. is focused on helping business owners and leadership teams improve the overall health of their organizations and value by implementing a number of specific, proven best practices for high-performing organizations. Healthy businesses generate more profit and are more valuable when the time comes to exit.

When our clients are ready for the inevitable transition to occur, 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 holds an Executive MBA with honors and Bachelor of Arts degree in Marketing, both from Michigan State University. In addition, he is currently pursuing a Juris Doctor (JD) degree with a specialization in contract law and transactions. He is a member of Christian Legal Society and Federalist Society.  

Phil is widely considered as one of the leading consultants in the professional landscape and snow management industries in North America. Pro-Motion Consulting, Inc. 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.
