BALLANTINE Environmental Resources (BER) is an award-winning national consulting firm. BER helps resorts, tourism clients and communities achieve greater success with innovative environmental solutions.

Todd Ballantine founded BER as a sole proprietor in our long-term hometown, Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. As client demand grew for Todd’s expert understanding of the marriage between resorts, resort communities, and the need for environmental solutions, BER continued to grow rapidly. Todd is renowned for his abilities to solve problems that seem insurmountable.

Marianne joined the firm in the mid-1990s to run the business, freeing Todd to concentrate on serving clients with his vast, visionary skills. We relocated to Boulder, Colorado in 1999 for our love of the Rocky Mountain west, and to have easier access to clients throughout the country.
