"Anthony is, first and foremost, a quality human being. Having had the privilege of working with him for many years, I've always been struck by his honesty, interpersonal communications acumen and genuine degree of caring for those he encounters. Beyond that, however, Anthony is a remarkably creative and intuitive marketer, who gets to the root of behavioral and market opportunities, and communicates the resulting value proposition concisely and with wisdom. In short, Anthony has accurate "gut feel" combined with eloquence, integrity and business smarts - a truly powerful combination."
