This month, we feature Caribou Thunder CEO,, Rita Peterson. 

Rita Peterson is not your typical CEO of a Department of Defense (DoD) engineering firm. She is a 5′ 1″ bundle of energy and genuine enthusiasm, with a warm smile; a self-described driver and perfectionist. However, ask employees and clients about her and they’ll tell you about the Native American woman working in a 98% male-dominated field who is always looking for that person others may have overlooked who she knows can do the job. Because that is her story. 

Caribou Thunder Engineering Services was founded by Rita in 2006 on the Lac Courte Oreilles Indian Reservation. The company began as a global services provider offering support to a diverse range of DoD and intelligence programs. Over the span of nearly two decades, Caribou Thunder has experienced significant expansion, providing exceptional high-quality service. 


Meet Rita Peterson

Founder, Leader of One of the most respected Engineering Firms in the Department of Defense & Intelligence Sectors

So. Colorado is one of the steadiest and most concentrated economic development regions in the United States.

From aerospace and defense, to advanced manufacturing, to cybersecurity and dozens of other industry sectors, So. Colorado is now home to US SPACE COMMAND, five active military installations, and multiple industry clusters with a tremendous focus on workforce, education, and our nation’s security.

It’s also home to the US Olympic & Paralympic Committee, USOPC Training Center, UCOPC Museum, and 25 National Governing Bodies making it a prime destination for businesses in the amateur and collegiate sports industries. 


Our military is one of the pillars of this unique community and its success.

Home to five active military installations – more than any other community in the US – we love our active duty and retired Service Members and Cadets and we want to show our appreciation through SOCO Digest each and every month.

We’re also keen to support the industries that support our military and space endeavors. Learn how your organization can join the conversation and be seen by others in this diverse and sophisticated business and innovation ecosystem.


Colorado Springs is the 39th largest GDP in the United States. Combine that with the surrounding communities of Pueblo, Monument, Canon City, Castle Rock and dozens more towns, So. Colorado is positioned perfectly to build and thrive various industries.
