Missy Mudry, President, has worked in public procurement roles for over 15 years and actively involved in promoting strategic vision and efficiencies since Day #1.  Being a good steward of taxpayer dollars has been a fundamental theme throughout her career.  It has been said, more than once, that Missy has the intensity to move mountains.  This is true, although not literally, because she is driven by effective procurement strategy, stakeholder objectives, deadlines and productivity.  These fundamentals have led to significant milestones in the firm's formative years.

Missy holds a bachelor’s degree from Duquense University, with most recent graduate coursework at Carnegie Mellon University’s Heinz School of Public Policy.  Her career began at the Association of Iron & Steel Engineers (AISE) while still in college.  After graduating cum laude, her marketing and sales path was furthered with SSPC: The Society for Protective Coatings, formerly known as Steel Structures Painting Council, where she managed the individual membership program and 20 active local chapters in the United States, Canada and India.  In 2005, she shifted into the public sector and began working at her local community school district.   After moving to the Phoenix area in 2010, and prior to becoming a consultant, she worked in key procurement roles at a large high school district, as well as the State Procurement Office.  Other highlights include:  

  • Certified Procurement Professional (NIGP-CPP)

  • Certified Professional Public Buyer (CPPB)

  • National Member of NIGP: The Institute for Public Procurement

  • National Member of the Institute of Supply Management (ISM)

  • Arizona Association of School Business Officials (AASBO) Member


Plus, our resource associates are seasoned professionals and subject matter experts from multiple public agencies, holding various degrees, certifications, clearances and educational backgrounds.  Some are retired, while others are still actively working in full-time roles.  We are all focused on expert procurement knowledge and providing quality consulting service to our clients.  

We have the know-how you need.
