ECONorthwest, the largest economic consulting firm in the Pacific Northwest, is excited to announce expanded abilities to serve clients from its new operations in Boise, Idaho.
“We have long recognized the growing economies of the Rocky Mountain Region and the potential benefits of a local ECONorthwest office,” said John Tapogna, President of ECONorthwest. “While we have served the Boise area for many years from our offices in Oregon, we believe 2012 is the right time to take this bold step of opening a new office in Boise. We are staffed for success.”
Dr. Kevin E. Cahill, Managing Director, and Dr. Brian Greber, Business Development Director, will co-lead the new office. Kevin—formerly a Manager at Analysis Group, a national economic consulting firm based in Boston, Massachusetts—specializes in labor economics, public policy, and statistical methods, and has experience testifying in court as an expert witness. Kevin holds a PhD in Economics from Boston College and actively publishes and presents his research at academic conferences nationally and internationally. Kevin also serves as a Research Economist at the Sloan Center on Aging & Work at Boston College.
Brian is an Adjunct Professor of Economics at Boise State University and formerly the founding director of Boise State University’s Center for Business Research and Economic Development. He specializes in industry/market analysis, natural resource economics, strategic planning, and organizational effectiveness. Brian holds a PhD in Forest Resource Economics from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and is widely published in both technical journals and popular press.
Combined Kevin and Brian have several decades of professional experience in economic research, public policy and executive management. They are both active in the Boise community, with numerous ties in the public, private, and academic sectors.
