what people say

"Michael is one of those professionals that you rarely run into. I think he is probably the eighth Wonder in terms of marketing. This guy knows his stuff. He came into our organization and implemented marketing initiatives that put our company in the limelight, increased our brand awareness and gave us a competitive advantage. As I go out in the field to meet with prospective end users, he makes sure that our team has all the support we need. His way of telling a story draws you in and somehow he has managed to incorporate that within our organization's marketing approach."

by Blake Thomas, Business Development/Industrial Specialist at TenCate Protective Fabrics

"Michael comes at the world of marketing with two unique skills -- strategic thinking and creativity. Both critical to success, they typically don't reside in the same person. Yet Michael excels in both, making him particularly effective."

by Jake McKenzie, CEO at Intermark Group

"Michael has an extraordinarily brilliant marketing mind and appreciation for the importance of data to tailor the message. He is an in-depth storyteller that includes the smallest of details like an Ernest Hemingway novel so the entire picture can be visualized and consumed at every level."

by Mike Allen, Senior Director of Sales & Marketing at GreenFields USA (former Senior Director of Marketing at TenCate Protective Fabrics)

"Michael is a pleasure to work with. His attention to global branding and marketing standards as applied to digital and interactive applications renders tactics which can be actioned on. In addition to overall strategy his value is also in the details; being able to constructively and concisely convey the importance of low level system settings to his stakeholders ensures that every aspect of the solution is considered and vetted against business requirements. His value is clear from even cursory conversations and builds as the dialogue deepens."

by Jason Fields, Senior Vice President, Strategy at Agency Oasis
