Our Experienced Team

“Your guidance throughout the course of our project is sincerely appreciated. Your leadership style allowed us to concentrate on what we were here to do and have some fun doing it. If I were going into battle, I would want you on my side. That is my highest compliment.”

Our team members are Idea Harvest™ masters whose mission is to ensure that your teams succeed. Many of us have “walked a mile” in your shoes, mastering the process as senior executives before joining Harvest Earnings. While masters of Idea Harvest™, we are students of business staying abreast of the latest developments so we can share new ideas with your team.

We walk the walk as we believe that performance improvement should also apply to those who provide a performance improvement process. What started as a process originally developed at McKinsey in the 80’s is no longer recognizable. Together we deliver an extraordinary experience for our clients that they can replicate for years to come.

Our team has personally advised the leadership of companies such as PNC Financial, H.J. Heinz, Manpower, Key Corp, American Eagle Outfitters, Pier 1 Imports, Acosta Sales and Marketing, the Schwan Food Company, Birds Eye Foods, Energy East and many others. The Harvest Earnings team, comprised solely of senior executives, has a never-ending thirst for improvement, top notch problem-solving skills and the ability to not take ourselves too seriously. Our team combines an extraordinary breadth of experience and expertise in business that clients can draw on including building food processing plants, running large salesforces, leading emergency service programs, managing large-scale change programs, advising Fortune 1000 CEOs on strategy, leading large IT projects, running procurement programs … to name just a few!

"The entire Harvest Team is a talented and professional group. They helped us think differently and drive for greater collaboration, transparency and accountability."

Our Founders

Jeremy Eden

Jeremy Eden and Terri Long are co-founders and co-CEOs of Harvest Earnings Group, Inc. Jeremy has decades of consulting and performance improvement experience in business and government including McKinsey. Terri was in the corporate banking world for eighteen years before joining Jeremy in 2000. Our co-founders met in the mid-90s when Terri was the client and an SVP at what is now U.S. Bancorp. Jeremy was the consultant assigned to work with her on the bank’s earnings improvement project. The rest, as they say, is history…our history.

Jeremy and Terri quickly realized that they were in lock step about how companies could grow earnings and improve the customer experience.  Company insiders, not outside consultants, had the answers.  Employees when given the right tools have hundreds of ideas to help their companies succeed.  But, senior executives needed a well-designed process to get those answers.  Furthermore, the process should result in ideas that grow revenue and improve the customer experience not just ideas to be more efficient.  Jeremy and Terri have built that process.

Terri Long

Big believers in “two heads are better than one”, they are often asked how it works to be Co-CEOs.  Their answer?  It works perfectly.  Mostly simpatico, occasionally they are the yin to the other’s management yang.  Their clients benefit!

Jeremy and Terri are considered two of the most practical and straightforward business thinkers in the field. This has made them very sought after advisors.

Jeremy and Terri co-authored Low-Hanging Fruit, 77 Eye-Opening Ways to Improve Productivity and Profits, published in March 2014 by Wiley Publishing.

Before all this started, Jeremy earned his B.A. in History at Yale University and his M.B.A. at Yale School of Management. Terri earned her B.A. in Finance at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.
