Success, its what we do!

Burnes Consulting was founded in 1995 by Kent Burnes after successfully working as the CEO for two successful downtown revitalization projects; Sheridan Wyoming and Flagstaff Arizona. For over two decades Kent has worked with hundreds of downtown organizations and neighborhood districts to strengthen their economic impact in their community or region.  Most of our clients implement the National Main Street Center’s 4 point approach to revitalization, a method taught by our firm. Kent has expanded the approach and used it to revitalize failing strip centers and shopping malls as well.

With a background in finance expanding their services to offer business consulting as well as recruitment, retention and expansion strategies is a critical component in district revitalization as healthy businesses make healthy districts. We offer one on one business consulting assistance, specialized workshops as well as technical assistance to local governments and organizations in need of specific recruitment, retention and expansion strategies. Each project is specialized, no cookie cutter strategies are used.  

Kent is a dynamic speaker and trainer as well as an author.  Kent has addressed audiences of 6000 and more participants and earned standing ovations for his no non sense delivery. Often referred to as the “passionate preacher of American business” Kent never disappoints to deliver a message void of educational value for the audience.

Kent is not just a consultant he is a doer. In 2002 Kent purchased land on the Caribbean Island of Roatan and built the very popular Blue Bahia Resort. Kent designed the buildings, planned the infrastructure (including the islands first eco-friendly waste water treatment plant), oversaw the construction, and finally provided the employee training for the restaurant, hotel and maintenance positions (hourly employee to general management) of the resort. Kent was able to pin point his market and maintain an 80% occupancy rate from opening day. Kent sold Blue Bahia in 2015 but the resort thrives as a testament to his abilities in the business arena.
