Why Crow Hill Associates?
You would choose to hire Crow Hill Associates (CHA) if you want a consultant (Jay Shenk) who is a proven executive and can hit the ground running. Unlike most consulting firms, with CHA you won’t get a recent graduate from a big name school who will sit in order entry for a week, at a high hourly rate, watching your clerks enter orders. And two months later you won’t get an 80 page PowerPoint presentation, of which 70 pages are stock verbiage that comes with the template. Rather, you’ll get the job done, efficiently and cost effectively. You’ll choose CHA if you want the job done right at a reasonable price. We have the experience to know that a function like order entry is 95% the same across all companies, and we just have to find the 5% that’s unique. There’s no sense paying a recent graduate $200 an hour to learn that other 95%.

Crow Hill Associates prides itself on delivering value to its clients. Our services pay for themselves quickly and many times over. Anyone can cut costs from a business, but to do so while improving performance is a much rarer skill.

Where did the name Crow Hill Associates come from?
Leominster State Forest begins directly across the street from Jay’s house, and in that forest is found one of the hidden treasures of Massachusetts. Within these woods the Midstate Trail snakes for miles along a ridge of cliffs, the tallest of which are known as the Cliffs at Crow Hill. U.S. Army Rangers train on these cliffs, Jon Krakauer, the author of Into Thin Air, learned to climb on these cliffs, and during the summer many amateur climbers test their skills on the Cliffs at Crow Hill.  The cliffs are beautiful to hike, with trails winding along on both the top and around the base of the ridge of cliffs. It’s a great place to hike in the summers and easily accessible. Take a picnic and you can sit on top of the cliffs and see for many miles.
