MAIN STREET MONTANA PROJECT
Governor Steve Bullock initiated the Main Street Montana Project in early 2013 by enlisting the services of two of Montana's most respected and accomplished business leaders: (Right) Larry Simkins, CEO of the Washington Companies, and (Left) Bill Johnstone, CEO of D.A. Davidson Companies.
The goal of the project was and is to create a dynamic private-public partnership to build and implement a business plan for Montana by Montanans. Over the course of approximately one year, Larry and Bill worked with members of Governor Bullock's administration to engage in a process of soliciting broad input and engagement from the private sector, as well as conducting research regarding Montana's economy - its strengths and challenges. More than 3,000 Montanans provided input through participating in a series of regional roundtable meetings and completing surveys.
