Our Network

When a project calls for a particular expertise or capacity that MIST can't adequately provide, we draw from our extensive network of partner consulting firms that crosses sectors and disciplines. When working with us, our clients get the benefit of a network of experts that expands well beyond ourselves. At MIST, we have specialized knowledge in many subject areas, but we are generalists at heart with the ability to aggregate the diverse collection of people and skills needed to tackle complex projects.
