Josh has been a great resource for our cooperative. When he does not have the answer he will follow up and find the answers for us. He is a team player and worked with another Columinate consultant to provide a meaningful one-day retreat that helped our co-op jump start their strategic process. We thank him for the positive energy and insights into the world of consumer co-ops and policy governance.
