What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?
Given the relationship with Finsquared, Inc. and the value that has ensued from that relationship, I haven’t had a lot of time to monitor the net return relative to the initial investment. That is, however, because of how successfully I’ve been able to gain conversations with journalists and other key centers of influence in the investment industry, to a large extent because of Finsquared, Inc.’s work. I have been more than pleased with the outcome and look forward to continuing to work with them.
How did Finsquared, Inc. perform from a project management standpoint?
They handled project management perfectly. We mostly communicated by email and telephone, and Mark did an excellent job working around my availability serving clients in every time zone across the United States, including Hawaii. It can be challenging to manage an engagement that you might need at a moment’s notice, but Mark was able to take any schedule shifts in stride.
What did you find most impressive about them?
I value the relationships that Mark has cultivated over a 20-plus year career in the financial services industry. For me, education is paramount, and by hiring Mark, I have been able to connect with several of the key financial journalists around the country to help educate more and more people. For that, I am eternally grateful.
Are there any areas they could improve?
No, I really have had a positive experience in every aspect of our partnership so far.
Do you have any advice for potential customers?
Be open, transparent, and honest, and accept the feedback coming from a true industry pro who knows the ins and outs of this business.
