Co-Founder and Managing Partner Enclave Companies

At Enclave, we approach every project by first spending significant time understanding the beneficiaries of the finished project, including end users, the neighbors and the community. This important step allows the team to develop communities that serve the end user, while having a positive impact on its neighbors and the community. We recognize that financial and market analysis will drive what makes sense to build, who it will be built for, and what budget we have to work with. However, we believe a well-designed community does not have to come at the expense of budget, and budget doesn’t have to constrain our ability to create a well designed and built community.

Our foremost talent is to complete thoughtful projects for defined target markets, on time and on budget. To date, 100% of our projects have been delivered on time and within budget.



By assembling the right partners (architects, engineers, lenders, investors) and working closely during the design phase, Enclave is able to design project budgets that work and successfully manage project specifications and schedules to deliver developments that achieve goals across every level.

Mike Meagher
Founder and President Sagency

Mike found meaningful work early in his career, but was constantly intrigued by how people engaged in their work and what led to team success. When teams were doing well, he noticed better communication and clear direction. When teams struggled, it was because they weren’t on the same page and they didn’t appreciate each other’s unique strengths and contributions.

He began reading and researching what impacts business success and found some common themes. People and healthy organizational dynamics (culture) are the primary drivers of success. Strategy matters but leadership is everything.

What was once simple intrigue, became the passion and the cornerstone for Sagency. When he founded Sagency in 2011, he was (and still is) eager to take on the challenge of guiding clients to achieve healthy growth.

Mike believes success and healthy growth always center around people:

  • Leveraging the talent of people on a team to achieve bigger goals.
  • Finding the right people.
  • Developing the capabilities of people.
  • Engaging people to create and execute plans to win.

“Our incredible team has a simple mission: We help leaders create a culture where everyone knows and does what it takes to win as a team. We take pride in being trustworthy guides. We’ve been there before, so we know the way to help you achieve healthy growth.” – Mike Meagher

Kia Mikesh
CEO, Partner Adams Independent Testing, LLC

A champion of the farming industry, Kia cofounded Adams Independent Testing (AIT) after the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 approved legalized cultivation and commercial production of industrial hemp. Leveraging her deep industry knowledge of Federal regulations, testing operations, and software innovation, Kia established what would become one of the first hemp testing laboratories in the state of North Dakota. With Kia’s guidance, AIT has emerged as a reliable third-party testing partner committed to what is arguably one of the quickest turnaround timelines in the United States.

Kia is also the Vice President of North Dakota Grain Inspection (NDGI), where she has worked since 2011. NDGI is one of the largest agencies in the United States Federally licensed to sample and grade grain under the United States Grain Standards and Agricultural Marketing Acts. Kia has been instrumental in leading the company’s strategic growth initiatives, with NDGI currently operating out of nine states. Additionally, Kia acts as Project Manager of AdamsNet, a software development company creating innovative solutions for grain inspection agencies like that of NDGI. It was this background that equipped her with the knowledge and tools needed to establish a hemp testing facility and have it fully operational within a short period.

Keen on never becoming stagnant, Kia’s commitment to professional growth and continual learning has been fundamental in a business with frequent regulatory changes. In recognition of her dedication and expertise, Kia has been appointed to serve on multiple boards over the years to promote and support economic sustainability in the agriculture sector. For example, Kia is currently a member of the Board of Directors for American Association of Grain Inspection and Weighing Agencies. She was also appointed by the U.S. Secretary of Agriculture to serve on the U.S. Department of Agriculture Grain Inspection Advisory Committee, where she discussed issues within the grain industry and provided recommendations and solutions to better programs and services under the U.S. Grain Standards Act.

In December 2016, Kia was recognized in Prairie Business magazine’s “40 Under 40” publication, a list honoring the top regional business professionals under the age of 40 making significant impacts in their professions, industries, and communities. She earned a bachelor’s degree from Carlson School of Management at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, MN, with a double major in Industrial Relations and Entrepreneurial Management.

Adam Martin
Founder F5 Project

Help for the incarcerated by the formerly incarcerated.

Prior to starting the F5 Project, Adam realized that every program available to help felons was offered by people who had never been to prison.


The F5 Project is a 501c(3) non profit organization that meets formerly incarcerated and those trying to overcome addiction where they’re at to help them start fresh.


After 5 felony convictions, Adam was given the chance to focus on his past or focus on is future. Adam got a chance to hit the refresh key on his life. Since been given that opportunity he has committed his life to doing the same for others.


The F5 Project is 100% privately funded and works tirelessly to change laws, rules, regulations and stigmas that negatively affect those trying to create a new life for themselves. We are always looking for criminal justice reform warriors who would like to join our cause. Donate here or contact us to volunteer.
