I have been fortunate to have Marc as a Vistage Chair and coach over the last several years. Through Marc’s broad business experience and objective view of my law firm’s practice, he helped us identify specific areas that increase our value to our clients and to our firm, and provided invaluable insights into tactics to make us more efficient and productive. As a coach, Marc goes beyond just making suggestions to make our business better. Marc utilizes a variety of tools, technology, and exercises that have helped us define our mission and strategy, and which provide a game plan to make us successful. Through our work together, I greatly value Marc as a trusted friend and an advisor vested in our success.
