My name is Christopher Jacquier, I am looking for a lead position at a working or guest ranch.Preferably in south west Montana but will relocate for the right position. I am currently living and working as the assistant ranch manager at sun west ranch in Cameron Montana. A little background on myself..

Growing up on a dairy farm in Northwest Connecticut, I learned values in every aspect of livestock care, crop production and farm management. I have been running equipment and driving truck since the age of eight years old. Just after high school I went to work for a tree company and started helping at a family gravel bed. There I became proficient in about every piece of equipment you can imagine. My father guided hunting for an outfit out of paradise valley so I would come spend some summer months with him and fell in love with Montana. At the age of twenty-two my family seemed to be keeping up with the farm and natural resource company, so I decided to pack up my things and head west. I started at the same place my father worked as a seasonal employee. When that season was over, I moved to Bozeman and started working for an excavation company. My career began as and equipment operator and within six months I was running multimillion dollar civil projects as a supervisor. I led a crew of five to six men five days a week. Bozeman was too congested for my liking, so I accepted an offer here at sun west. My day to day here consists of everything from taking guests/owners on trial rides to building roads and infrastructure. I consider myself a jack of all trades as I have no problem taking on carpentry, basic plumbing and absolutely any sort of excavation project. I am constantly fixing and installing septic and water systems here at the ranch and opened an llc of my own for side projects. During the summer months I will help direct a few seasonal employs helping with our horse program and groundskeeping. I pride myself in my work ethic and have absolutely no problem working from sunup to sundown any given day. I am an avid outdoorsman and an aspiring horse trainer.

A little about Paige..

Paige grew up here in the Madison valley, her grandfather managed an outfit called Granger ranches through most of her childhood. Throughout and after high school she worked for a preschool helping with children. She started picking up houses here in the valley to clean on her own to fill up her schedule. She started working for a couple at another ranch in the valley helping with taking care of their children and putting on events for guests and owners. She is constantly helping me with the computer and office side of things here at the ranch as well. Paige has the biggest heart of anyone that I know and is a pleasure to be around.

I do enjoy my position here at Sun West I just do not see myself planting my roots here on this “ranch”. Paige and I have been discussing our future and want to find a place where we can find our “forever home”. My goal is to tell someone “We have worked here for the last 30 years”. This establishment is more of a ranch community or a glorified sun division, we do bring animals in to graze in the summer and have a herd of horses but there is not much ranching to the position. I check my emails often and can also be reached anytime on my cell phone at 406-413-5605. Thank you so for your time in advance!
