About Us

Molly SharpeWe enjoy offering clients senior-level expertise at an affordable cost. I began my professional career with Texas Monthly, where I served as marketing director. During my eleven years with the magazine, I became involved with community service, helping the Junior League establish a corporate volunteer program and the Austin Child Care Commission create a successful grant proposal to HUD that created a transitional child care program for the working poor.  That program served clients of Salvation Army, Caritas, and SafePlace and fostered ongoing collaboration among these complimentary organizations. 

My interest in community led me to a new role with Austin's public television affiliate, KLRU-TV.   As senior vice president for marketing and development, I directed a talented team of twelve who had responsibility for raising the station's operating budget and publicizing Austin City Limits.  While I was at KLRU I had the wonderful experience of building and implementing the plan that established the station's major donor circle.  In 1994 when I began consulting, KLRU was my first client, hiring me to help pave the way to building an endowment. 

My husband and partner Ed works with me on all client projects, providing his leadership insights. As an organizational management expert,  Ed through three administrations served as vice president of The University of Texas at Austin, where he has received the Top Hand Award from the ex-student association.  He was interim president of The University of Texas at Permian Basin, executive vice chancellor to The University of Texas System and the founding chair of The University of Texas Elementary School. Community work is important to him and he serves on community boards where his skills and experience are useful.  Additional associates join us for projects as needed.  Our collective work has assisted many community groups in their efforts to improve the quality of life in Texas.
