At Silver Bighorn, we understand the nuances of doing business in the Western states. Individually, Silver Bighorn’s associates have impressive professional track records in business development, economic analysis, strategic planning and marketing in the corporate, nonprofit and government sectors. Frustrated watching really good initiatives go bad for lack of project implementation and resource management, we came together in 2012 to make our experience and expertise available to clients.
Kimberly Elliott is the lead facilitator. She works with clients to define and achieve their business goals. Areas of specialization include project management, market research, and writing.
