Clients Say

“What has always impressed me about Nikki Borman is that she understands how all the pieces fit together in a complex organization yet always has vision for where the business is going. She moves easily between a high level view and the tactical details, that involve the finance, technology and systems, to get the institution where it needs to be.”
