We are people who enjoy keeping families living and working together on Ranches.

People are drawn to the land because they take pleasure in it.  Families dedicate themselves to this lifestyle because it gives them a feeling of well-being and a sense of place, a place where they can spend time working and enjoying the outdoors together.  Preserving a family system of management on a ranch not only protects and conserves the land but upholds an important part of our western culture as well.

Our Team

Paladin draws from an interdisciplinary team of professionals that come from ranching and conservation backgrounds and have the expertise and experience to make things happen on the ground.  Our independent professionals are currently working in ranch management, natural resources, livestock production (cattle and bison), recreation and guest services, civil engineering and accounting.  Collectively, the Paladin team has over 100 years of ranch management and field experience.

Paladin's Value's - Faith, family, integrity, teamwork, passion, hard work, and having fun!

Perry and Susan raised their four sons while working in Ranch Management for the past 35 years of their lives.  Perry has managed properties in Montana, New Mexico, and Colorado varying in size from small irrigated homesteads to a diversified 25,000 acre mountain ranch.  His broad range of experience in livestock production, wildlife conservation, and guest services demonstrates his enjoyment of people, the outdoors, and his commitment to the western lifestyle.  Perry’s thorough understanding of the complexities of family-owned ranches provides valuable insight for current and prospective landowners who have the desire to fulfill their own vision of building a family ranch.
