Recommend Wordpress Developers

I'm scoping out a CMS migration to Wordpress from some crazy, proprietary .NET framework we need to abandon. I plan to lead the project, but I'll definitely need some good Wordpress theme developers I can go to for the heavy lifting.Also, at this point we're not really looking to do any design changes, so this is really about the CMS and back end.Any recommendations? Thanks in advance!See More

"Our campus currently has the chancellor's office funding the servers for their switch to a content management system. They originally sent out requests to each department for money, but when that failed there was no one else who could afford it."
