As the former chief executive of Milwaukee-based Potawatomi Business Development Corp., Pepi Randolph saw an opportunity for the Potawatomi tribe to diversify and grow. From that vision, Greenfire Management Services was created.
The construction management firm is 100% owned by the Forest County Potawatomi. Randolph serves as vice president of business development.
Colleagues say Randolph’s ability to connect with people and form genuine relationships directly results in noteworthy projects and clients.
“Pepi is an asset to the firm through his connections and relationships. His desire to learn about tribal history and share it with our community sets him apart from his peers,” says Jeb Meier, president of Greenfire. “We are fortunate to have someone of his caliber on the team.”
“Pepi has been a mentor and leader to me as I learn and grow in business development. We each bring something different to the team,” said Michael Moe, business development coordinator. “He has an innate ability to walk into a room and come out with a new connection through his willingness to help others.”
