"What has always impressed me about Chad - he can be presented with goals, and is sufficiently self-motivated to take those goals away, assess the situation, pose workable solutions and actualize his own suggestions. Chad has become my preferred sounding board for new marketing ideas, and I have come to rely on his cool rationality and keen insight, always delivered in his laidback, personable style."

“Since joining my team, Chad has been an invaluable employee. With his positive attitude and his desire to learn and build his capabilities he quickly became the one that I could go to when I wanted something done timely and with integrity. His knowledge and experiences are wide, and anything he didn't have a great understanding of, he was the first to ask questions or research on his own.”
