When it comes to our work, the people at Barker & Scott have two great passions: the missions of the nonprofit organizations we serve and the immense possibilities of strategically aligned technology, data, processes, and people to further those missions. It’s a remarkably simple formula that has enabled us to find – and retain – an incredible collection of talent that has helped our clients enjoy great success.
Because so many of our team members have worked on both sides of the industry table (both as technology consultants as well as nonprofit executives and managers), we better than most understand the critically important work performed by the nonprofit sector under daunting conditions. Yet we also understand the many ways that properly aligned information technology can inform, inspire, and galvanize a nonprofit organization’s diverse constituencies to act as one in support of its mission.
Here’s a brief look at our principals and most senior consultants.
