Paul was responsible for development of a strategic marketing and corporate communications program to raise the visibility of Greenwich Technology Partners to both customers, the financial markets in general and potential investors. I had further experience with Paul as he provided services to my small manufacturing start up. At the time Paul was working as an independent consultant. His commitment to any project is exemplary. Paul works diligently to become knowledgable in every aspect of the business he is addressing. His organizational skills and ability to plan and communicate his process enhances the high quality service he delivers. His work on collateral materials and website development at GTP went well beyond the marketing aspects of our business. He became an integral contributor to our message which had a transformative effect on the business. His management of a team of advisors to Specialty Pallets was outstanding in that the group he led helped me create a strategic business and operations plan. Paul kept the direction steady. His commitment to meeting goals and timetables was terrific.

Paul worked with me in 1997 when Fine Host was a NASQAQ traded company and within the first year as senior executives we successfully grew the food service business from under $100 million to approximately $300 million in annual revenue. As communication director, he led all internal and external resources to effectively develop and manage a corporate brand identity program to all audiences resulting in a dramatic rise in the stock price from $13 to $41. Two years later, I hired Paul as VP Marketing and together we created and developed a wide range of programs designed to retain contacts, acquire new customers and increase unit sales before the board sold the entire business to ARAMARK. I highly recommend Paul to any organization looking for a marketing communications executive.

Paul was instrumental in helping to grow Greenwich Technology Partners from US$6M to US$60 in only five years. Paul established a long-term strategic marketing / corporate communications program that reflected management’s goals for the company and was able to execute on and manage the plan in a fast-growing, highly competitive technology market. I recommended Paul to anyone who needs a sales and marketing-oriented, trusted business advisor.

I have known Paul for 20+ years but the first time I worked with him was in 2008. We worked together for six months and now I can report that I have benefitted from the executive coaching experience.

After completing his client input sheet, we co-developed an engagement program then identified my goals and desired results. Through S.M.A.R.T. conversations, I clarified my initial thinking into specific, measurable, actionable, results-oriented objectives with results that could be evaluated. In subsequent conversations we discussed strategies, explored alternatives and possible action items. Overall, Paul was attentive in each conversation and through his visionary questions and insights, he helped me deepen my thinking, and motivated me to take action as I generated some important ideas and answers from these coaching sessions. The bottom line for me is that I made significant changes that probably would not have been possible without having Paul as a sounding board . Paul has a broad management background and I encourage you to call him to discuss your business challenges.

Paul and his creative professionals at The Seroka Group provided a wide range of agency marketing services to SanPellegrino's United States executive team for over five years. They helped develop communications tools and branding strategies that were at the foundation of over 500% growth while building a strong consumer brand throughout the country. If you are looking for a business consultant to help you grow your business and achieve results, I highly recommend Paul.

Castle Oil hired Paul for a two month program to complete a corporate brand audit of the corporate marketing program and a written marketing plan designed to retain customers, attract new customers and increase revenue from all customers. Then over the next 13 months, Paul served as a project manager implementing all print advertising campaign, direct marketing, media relations, videotape production and Internet rebranding engagements. Paul served as an extension of our marketing department on an outsourced basis and served as a business coach to the director of residential sales and VP of Marketing. I enjoyed working with him and was impressed with the quality of the program.
