Our history.Our Leaders
A legacy of doing what’s right.
After the birth of her second child, our founder, Dava Freed, recognized that the work and travel required at a global consulting firm would be difficult to juggle along with family life. When a client suggested she start her own firm and take on a large systems implementation project, she agreed and founded Dava Freed Consulting in 1991.
The firm purposefully grew at a slow pace in those early years so that Dava could be present in her children’s lives and ensure the quality and standards of the firm’s work. As her children grew and became more independent, so did the firm. She changed the name to Freed Associates to reflect the increasing talent in the firm and the true teamwork within the company, and built a management team that emulates her goals and ideals. Freed makes room for employees to balance their work and personal lives. Our consultants work from a “what’s right for the client” vantage point, because the company focuses on what’s right for our associates.
