Silk Roads Consulting


WHY we exist

To see small and mid-sized companies and organizations thrive
as their ideals unfold
practically and smoothly into their present reality.


Silk Roads is inspired by the historically significant commercial corridors where goods, culture, ideas and beliefs were exchanged.
We believe in journeying, learning and arriving together with our clients.
We are experienced leaders and managers, with over 50 years of combined professional work experience.
Are you wondering about the last name connection? Yes, we are siblings.
