Wildflower’s strategic vision is customer-centric. Our leaders, current and those waiting in the wings, are not wedded to the past, but to the role we have earned in an expanded universe of opportunity. How we see and present ourselves is critical to bringing others – our staff, customers, and suppliers - into that vision. The Executive Leadership Team not only brings a wealth of talent and depth of experience to bear, they also have a lot of heart, and that goes a long way. Please meet them …
President Kimberly stands apart because she holds the belief that her work is a reflection of herself. A native of Santa Fe, Kimberly founded Wildflower International Ltd. from her daughter’s bedroom in 1991. Her goal was to create a company based on honesty and integrity, which allowed a balance between work and home life for her and her employees.Groomed by its first major contract for the Department of Energy, Wildflower is now the first class federal contractor that Kimberly always knew it could be. Her non-conventional approach is the cornerstone of the company’s success. It’s reflected in everything from the company’s branding to its day to day operations, and leaves Wildflower open to ideas, opportunities and solutions that others often fail to consider.
In her free time, Kimberly can be found working in her vegetable garden and tending to her chickens. In 1998 she was honored by the Department of the Interior with a national award for “Land Stewardship and Development” for her restorations of local wetlands. Her efforts stretched across 5,000 acres to improve the environment for wildlife and people alike. Kimberly’s sense of stewardship extends even further as a foster parent.Whether it’s tending to her garden, working to protect her local environment, or maintaining the largest woman owned business in New Mexico, Kimberly sees success as her personal responsibility.
