With the expansion of The Rose City’s economy, our Partners, Mike and Ashleigh Gunter, saw an opportunity to bring a fresh approach to Portland’s consulting market built upon true partnership with clients and meaningful engagement in the community.

From strategy development and program leadership to change management and technology implementation, our range of services helps organizations and individuals lead transformation and build an effective and engaged workforce that gets results. With proven track records in consumer goods, retail, technology, health care, government, energy, education, and more, our team of consultants represent a diverse range of skills and experience.
