Brianne Dugan has a decade of political, policy and management experience, having held director positions in both Washington, D.C. and Bozeman, Montana for Montana’s longest-serving U.S. Senator, Max Baucus, as well as serving as Montana Chief of Staff for U.S. Senator John Walsh. She rocketed into the private sector in 2015, launching her new consulting business, Bird Dog Strategies, LLC., and quickly became an essential asset to her clients.
In 2016 she was Sarah Calhoun’s right hand woman, helping to produce the most successful Red Ants Pants Music Festival to date with over 16,000 attendees. In 2013, she co-produced Senator Baucus’ Economic Development Summit in Butte, a 4,000-attendee business conference featuring eleven keynote presentations including: Google’s Eric Schmidt, FedEx’s Fred Smith, Tesla Motors’ Elon Musk, Facebook’s Sheryl Sandberg, and Ford’s Alan Mullaly. In 2011, she produced the two-week, 2,500-attendee Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Second Senior Officials Meeting in Big Sky, MT in conjunction with the U.S. Departments of State, Commerce and the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative.
How I Want to Participate in PowerHouse
Having great mentors is a big part of why I’m where I’m at today. I’d love to pay that forward and am fortunate to have a great network of kick-ass gals (and guys) that I’m always aiming to expand and share. While my roots are in Bozeman, I’m uniquely passionate about rural Montana and always interested in working on new ways to keep these communities vibrant. My interests and areas of expertise are diverse, so don’t hesitate to contact me about an issue or industry that isn’t explicitly listed.
Bree spends her free time hiking and enjoying Montana’s great outdoors. In the fall, she can be found upland bird and waterfowl hunting with her black lab, Scully. She lives in Bozeman with Scully and her husband, John.
