From the beginning, Herdt Consulting has been defined by our people. We have dedicated our careers to creating outcomes that leave lasting capability in both the military and commercial organizations. James “Jim” Herdt founded Herdt Consulting when he retired from his role as the Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy in 2002. He was then joined by his Navy colleagues and friends Tom Hefty (President), Pete Thielen (Senior Vice President), and Eric Miller (Vice President). Together they have built Herdt by forming solid relationships with partners and employees to focus on providing the very best solutions to our clients.
