In 1983, award winning national and state parks executive, Bud Surles, began a firm called Rocky Mountain Outdoors. This firm served both the public and private sectors of the Outdoor Hospitality industries in long range planning, land planning, master planning of systems and individual parks, resort and park development, customer service, and forging public-private relationships. After a 15-year break from 1990 until 2006, in which Bud left his business to go into Christian ministry, mission work, and writing (www.kingdomroadministries.com), he began again to provide the highest level of expertise into the Parks, Resorts, and RV Resort planning. This time he was called back into the industry to plan, develop, and operate a now nationally famous award winning resort. Because of its national reputation, many have called Bud to provide his services once again to an industry in the state of change. A new shift in the outdoor recreation paradigm calls for experience emerging from the highest levels of the industry and Bud Surles provides that experience. From that need, Rocky Mountain Outdoors has re-emerged as Bud Surles Consulting Group. Now Bud provides services for corporations, public agencies, and individuals in consulting for land development, site consultations, cutting edge design, and leading seminars both in the Resort and RV industries and for Christian ministry.
Bud Surles is a seasoned business executive with an award-winning career in natural resource planning, design, development, and management of public lands and private resorts. Integrity in business, a love of the land, and a deep faith have combined to give Bud a heart for looking at land development in an exciting way. He has won national recognition for his management, development, and leadership accomplishments. All of this spanning a career over 30 years. Experience - aged to perfection. Ideas - clearly in the 21st century.
