About Rebecca Reynolds
Rebecca Reynolds founded RRC in 1991 to serve the growing demand for her work after she ended an accomplished career in executive management of nonprofit arts organizations. Rebecca entered the nonprofit arena in Denver during the economic downturn of the ‘80s. As development and marketing director of Opera Colorado and then executive director of Colorado Ballet, Rebecca specialized in turn-arounds and institution building based on highly successful fundraising, board development and financial management skills. After major achievements in these executive management positions, Rebecca recognized that her interests and abilities were uniquely suited to the dynamics of change, and that she could accomplish more in this arena as a consultant.
In RRC's early years, Rebecca pioneered management consulting for nonprofits and served hundreds of clients in the arts, education, environment, health and human services. Rebecca also lectured and trained on subjects including board development, strategic planning, fundraising and capital campaigns, and financial management as part of her Nonprofit Know-How Series®.
Then, in 1997, Rebecca conducted a strategic planning retreat for the Air Program of the US Forest Service, and from this began a new specialization in natural resource management. Rebecca has worked in the areas of air quality, fire and fire effects, climate change, agriculture, water quality/quantity and others. For the firm’s natural resource management clients, Rebecca manages complex decision-making processes, writes policy and planning documents, develops leadership capability, designs outreach processes and facilitates meetings, workshops and conferences.
Having worked extensively with and advised top executives throughout her career, Rebecca became a certified executive coach in 2002. This qualification adds greater depth to her one-on-one work with clients and offers executives another avenue for more specific support in making change and achieving goals. Rebecca is also a certified Practitioner of NLP, the highly acclaimed communication technology.
Rebecca is the author of numerous policy and planning documents, as well as the RRC Leadership Advantage® and Nonprofit Know-How. She also writes a blog on leadership, short-story fiction and is working on a memoir of her six-month research sabbatical in Italy where she worked in the Vatican Archives. This research formed the basis of her award-winning thesis on 18th century Italian opera, which earned her a BA in History from Hampshire College in Amherst, Massachusetts.
Rebecca and her husband make their home in Brighton, Colorado, a small farming community north of Denver. She donates her services to area nonprofits and serves on the Advisory Boards of the Denver Cooperative Preschool and AlterMed Research Foundation. Rebecca is an avid student of yoga, a sailor, a ballroom dancer, and hikes the backcountry of Colorado, Utah and New Mexico.
