An enrolled member of the Oglala Sioux Tribe, Tom Livermont grew up on the Pine Ridge Reservation, raising cattle and horses with his parents and four brothers, two of whom still work the family ranch.
For nearly two decades, he has served as President and CEO of Pergroup, splitting his time between the organization’s offices in Pierre and Rapid City, South Dakota. A graduate of South Dakota State University, Livermont has assisted clients in more than a dozen states, bringing business clients his personal approach to improving efficiency, effectiveness and profitability.
Before assuming the helm at Pergroup, Livermont spent four years with Farm Credit Services and seven years as a loan officer and business banker, experience that helped him establish a strong reputation as an individual dedicated to helping those he serves.
To date, Pergroup has processed more than 2 million transactions for the Indian Health Service, and prides itself in establishing a 99% accuracy rate in data processing and the timely completion of projects. In addition, the company has conducted health and physical education surveys and provided statistical analysis of all 56 school districts in South Dakota, conducted in-depth process reviews of workflow within offices of state Departments of Health, then implemented re-engineered processes that remain in use today, helping countless clients improve efficiencies and bolster their bottom lines.
“Every organization goes through change, but sometimes navigating those changes requires outside assistance,” Livermont says. “We help our clients navigate those changes, from the maze through the process. We’ve done it many times and we know what to look for, bringing a refreshing approach to change. And, Pergroup backs up everything we do. We never over-sell and under-deliver.”
