Commitment to Clients

I commit to my clients’ business and professional success. My approach is to help clients clarify their business and professional aspirations, crystalize their company’s business strategy, deepen their understanding of their organization and leadership team’s capability to execute that strategy, raise awareness of how their personal leadership is impacting their success, and provide candid and constructive feedback and practical advice to help them realize their aspirations.


Michael Franklin is an affiliate managing director with over 25 years of experience helping CEOs, boards of directors, and senior managers to align on strategic direction and build leadership and organizational capability to drive successful performance. Clients have included Fortune 500 companies, start-ups, and not-for-profit organizations in the health care, financial services, technology, telecommunications, energy, transportation, and consumer products industries.

Before joining Pearl Meyer, Michael was a partner with The River Group, and before that, he was a managing director with PwC’s Advisory practice.

Michael was a partner at Delta for 15 years and led Delta’s San Francisco office for over 10 years.
