Dave Burton

"I have had the distinct pleasure to work with Ellen for 8 years. Our experience starts with the first phone call to discuss a potential partnership right through to multiple contract extensions. Every time we re-signed an agreement it was with confidence knowing that Ellen was a key part of the landscape. I could always depend on her to resolve any issues and to serve as a customer advocate on my behalf. So much so, under certain circumstances, I was more apt to turn to Ellen before I would to a member of my own staff."
