Ben Bisbee | Founder + Principal 

I'm a dreamer, a doer, a madman with focus.

I'm the good kind of dangerous.

I support most of the day-to-day client consulting needs and proudly set the focus and direction of Rhinocorn's vision and purpose as a nonprofit  industry leader. 

With over 20 years of experience in the nonprofit industry building successful and award winning community and development programs for nonprofits of all shapes and sizes, I have been proudly contracted to solve problems, create national fundraising and volunteer platforms, and mentor leaders through new or difficult challenges nationwide. 

And I love a challenge.

The best nonprofits on the planet are not successful because of their staffing or budgets, but by their spirit and engagement architecture. So I see myself as a very spirited program architect who not only wants to see others succeed but absolutely exceed their own goals. 

Beyond my professional merits, I'm also a proud husband,  LGBTQ, Native American, pet owner and animal advocate, author and idealist.

Rachael | The Research Raccoon

More than just an adorable face, Rachael has been working side-by-side with Ben for over a decade as one of the best and most effective visual devices possible. 

Involved in many of of the presentations and educational experiences with Rhinocorn, Rachel helps to support the simple idea that everyone's individual professional and nonprofit experiences are unique. And as unique, may need additional exploration or research when applying new ideas, methodologies and strategies. So when someone sees Rachael in a presentation or on a document, they know it's ideal to consider additional thoughts or research for their own professional goals.
