What Our Clients Say

Mark is one of those rare people who not only knows where to find that amazingly useful nugget of information, but the wisdom to interpret it.

Trevor Zylstra, COO, SparkFun Electronics on May 14, 2010

Mark quickly produced a very crisp and informative analysis of the market, and how our product would potential fit into this market. Lastly he developed and presented a very high quality and detailed launch plan. I was very happy with his work. It definitely helped shape our launch strategy. I would not hesitate to hire Mark for future marketing projects.

Ed Dua, President, Nextsport on January 12, 2010

Top Qualities: Great Results , Expert , On Time

Mark was able, in a very short time, to evaluate our product presence on the Internet and develop effective recommendations for MUCH better product positioning at a significant cost savings to the company. I would happily hire him again if the need arises. Mark has a special ability to clear away confusion and create an accurate picture of a product’s position in the marketplace. That, combined with his integrity and genuine commitment and focus on his client, makes him a delight to work with. I look forward to doing so again.

Pam Sichel, COO, Pure Research Products on November 12, 2009

Top Qualities: Great Results , Expert , Creative

[Due to FastGrowth Advisor’ work, we] reworked our mission and vision, thought about some of our market segments differently, modified the website home page, and the list goes on. [Mark is] a professional I respect who can guide my path and make minor (and sometimes major) adjustments that have a big impact. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time with Mark and felt it was extremely productive.

Sylvia Bernstein, CEO, The Aquaponics Source on February 13, 2010

As executive director of CRC, my staff and I worked with Mark first in his capacity as SBDC advisor. I later hired him to lead CRC’s strategic planning process for 2011. In both instances I found Mark’s steady, patient and respectful communication style to be a major assett, as well as his ability to identify opportunities and creative ideas that the organization can build on for the future. His wealth of experience and insight are extremely valuable when considering new business opportunities. His leadership and skills as a facilitator were invaluable in helping CRC plot its future. I can’t recommend Mark highly enough.”

Keith Frausto, Executive Director, Center for Resource Conservation on December 23, 2010

Mark is a great asset as a consultant…both because of his expertise and his fantastic attitude. We have asked him to take on clients with little or no preparation and to produce results with incredibly limited resources, which he has consistently accomplished.

Bing Chou, Manager, Boulder Small Business Development Center on May 25, 2010

Mark is a strong detail oriented manager who never loses sight of the strategic objectives that need to be met. His experience at P&G coupled with a keen creative eye gives him the balance to develop marketing plans that are both innovative and creative. Bound by a strong work ethic he brings the tools to successfully build a brand and make a company successful. He’s adapted to many roles, challenges and changes over his career. Simply put he is a leader and team player who gets things done.
