About the Position: 

NBS is currently seeking the next Director for its Utility Rate Practice Group, which focuses on municipal utilities (water, sewer, storm drainage, and solid waste) performing cost-of-service rate studies, system capacity fees, and related financial planning and analyses. This is a successful and growing consulting group currently composed of two senior practitioners and two senior consultants. We are looking for a talented person with a vision for growth who enjoys and has demonstrated abilities in four key areas: (1) preparing technical financial studies, (2) managing clients and their projects, (3) managing a team of consultants, and (4) marketing and sales. This individual will have the benefit of working under the two senior managers for a year prior to assuming full director duties, meaning you will receive support in the form of coaching, technical training, and mentoring, which we expect will ensure that at the end of the year you will be well-equipped to take on the director’s duties, reporting directly to the CEO of NBS.

  • A minimum of seven years of consulting experience with recognized success in utility rates and financial management, system capacity fees, and/or other forms of cost-of-service analyses.

  • Comfortable working with client staff, elected officials, and the public, including public presentations and speaking engagements.
  • Proficient in Microsoft Office software, specifically Excel, Word, and PowerPoint.

Education and/or Experience:

  • Bachelor’s degree in economics, engineering, business administration, or related technical field; however, a master’s degree in a quantitative field is strongly preferred.


  • Salary comparable to practice leaders in similar consulting fields, but tied to level of experience.
  • Annual performance bonuses based on reasonable success in meeting business metrics.
  • Participation in Employee Stock Ownership (ESOP).
  • Excellent benefits including but not limited to Medical, Dental, Vision, Life, 401k, & Vacation
