"After I launched CarClub.com in the 1990's, I had many highly qualified candidates, but chose Ivy to head corporate PR and Communications. I was right! She trimmed our big agency spend and produced major results with a reasonable budget. Ivy effectively positioned our company with consumers, investors and the media. She developed smart strategies to differentiate our company from our many competitors, generated substantial positive media coverage with “A” list wire services, print, broadcast and online press, and navigated complex communications issues with internal and external audiences.
I recommend Ivy and her firm to any organization looking to launch, reposition or re-energize an established brand. She brings strategic thinking, creative, collaboration, energy, perseverance, and resourcefulness."
