Our Team


Carla co-founded Protiro in 1997 to bring creativity and a clients-come-first approach back to the professional services industry. By building it on the principles of honesty, integrity and reliability, Carla and her co-founder Echo have helped grow Protiro into a multi-million dollar company with four divisions and repeated recognition as one of Colorado’s top businesses.

Carla’s experience is deep and diverse—with expertise in strategic development, leadership, finance, technology, team development and corporate growth.   

Carla holds a degree in Mass Media and Speech from Houston Baptist University.



Echo is the President of Protiro. Her vast industry insight and drive to deliver service beyond what’s expected leads the company’s vision of becoming an indispensable partner for customers.

Prior to co-founding Protiro 18 years ago, Echo's experience in search and staffing began 22 years ago as IT recruiter.  She worked for three national firms quickly becoming a valued sales/recruiter.    

Originally, Echo pursued a career as a forensic psychologist. While attending college, however, she discovered a passion for recruiting and the industry. And the rest, as they say, is history. 



Keith has over 10 years of executive management experience with a focus on operational oversight across a wide range of industries.  He is currently responsible for all aspects of project delivery, quality, corporate safety, human resources and oversight of day-to-day operations across all Protiro business units.

Keith received his Bachelors in Science Management from Tulane’s A.B. Freeman School of Business and continues to hold his Professional in Human Resources (PHR) certification.

“Protiro encapsulates a small professional company with down-to-earth friendly people who know how to navigate government contracts subjected to highly complex rules and laws to supply top-notch technical expertise to government institutions.”

“Protiro presented me an opportunity of a lifetime! I have worked in the telecommunications field my whole life and have wondered from job to job feeling like my talent was wasted, neglected and unused. Out of the blue, Protiro contacted me and told me NIST was looking for people like me! I had known about NIST all of my life, but never imagined I would be working there. Not only am I challenged with many new and exciting technologies and research, but I work at a great place with awesome people and what I'm doing is making a difference! Thank you Protiro!”
