Who we are

TRG Arts is a results-driven consulting firm dedicated to the arts and entertainment field. We use data to develop strategies that help clients achieve the kind of results that achieve working capital and loyal patronage. In short, TRG works with clients on strategic practices for sustainability.

TRG Arts was created in 1995 by our late founder, Rick Lester. We are based in beautiful Colorado Springs, Colorado at the TRG Arts Center for Results. Our 35 team members believe in making change that helps arts communities thrive. The Center for Results is TRG’s learning, teaching, and consulting center in which we host clients, partners, and friends in the national and international arts and cultural sector.

Informed by data, TRG consultants and analysts guide growth to achieve results.  We work with clients in these three core areas of our business:

  • Consulting: TRG transforms organizations through strategies that increase organizational capacity and result in sustaining revenue growth. Through pricing, patron loyalty, and data counsel, we grow stronger, longer patron relationships and revenue. Learn more about our work in patron loyalty and in pricing.
