Montana stakeholders understand a talented workforce is critical to economic prosperity. Native Montanans are “raised” with a work ethic that is rugged, from sunrise to sundown, not an eight-to-five schedule, but quitting time is when the project is complete. The Montana outdoor adventure lifestyle is a carrot that attracts talented people from across the globe.
“I lived in Cape Town South Africa, Napa Valley and Asheville North Carolina, but when I came to the Flathead Valley, I got everything I wanted.
A lot of my friends are still working in big cities and places with traffic, my commute is beautiful. Every morning I sit and eat breakfast and I look around me and think I am so lucky to be here.” – Derek Tarrant, Director of Applied Research, ViZn Energy Systems, Columbia Falls
