SafeNet was founded by Bob Purdy and Marty Miller - two consultants who have passionately built their vision of a consulting firm that would attract the very best. After all, who knows what consultants want better than consultants? Their idea was to build a firm that appeals to true entrepreneurs that are interested in the business of consulting and want to be a part of a growing and successful firm.
Bob and Marty know that great consultants want it all: opportunities for success, reward, collaboration, and flexibility for balance in their lives. That is why they built an organization which consultants love because they are rewarded for the value they contribute and are treated with the respect they deserve. In a market that has negative unemployment for consultants, we continue to thrive by staying true to our vision.
SafeNet’s headquarters reflects our unique business model and personality. It also serves as a “bridge” to assist our consultants in the field. Not located in your normal office building, SafeNet is based in a warehouse on a wildlife preserve. Our location gives us space and flexibility, as our unique facilities can handle groups as large as 120 indoors, and well over 300 at our outdoor amphitheater.
Our Place is Your Place
The “Bridge” not only provides offices for the internal team, but also a development center for offsite projects. We have collaboration spaces that inspire people to work together to solve difficult issues or for team-building. Clients and consultants are always welcome to use the facilities for group meetings, or to just come in for a cup of coffee around the fireplace.
Do you have a passion for consulting? We hire experienced professionals who enjoy the variety and challenges of consulting.
It's About The Work
We work with many types of businesses (such as government and agribusiness), but have a particular passion for solving problems in healthcare. With rapidly changing technology and government regulation, the Twin Cities market is rich with opportunities in many different healthcare segments. We work with a multitude of companies here to be part of the solution – truly affordable health care accessible by all.
We Get Involved
That is why we are strong supporters of industry professional associations. We have been corporate sponsors of the International Institute of Business Analysts (IIBA) for several years. In fact, the current president of the Minnesota Chapter is a SafeNet consultant. We also are supporters of the Project Management Institute (PMI), Data Management Association (DAMA), Healthcare Information Management & Systems Society (HIMSS) and the Women’s Health Leadership Trust (WHLT).
