D.R., President – Jack Richeson & Co., Inc.

Our company engaged Excalibur Edge to help create job descriptions for senior management at our family business. Additionally, we engaged Dave to undertake a strategic review and planning session for the company. I would recommend Excalibur Edge and Dave as someone who can skillfully lead your company through a variety of planning challenges.

T.C., Vice President – Spark

Spark sought Excalibur Edge’s help in mapping out processes and improving the organizational efficiency of our growing advertising agency. Dave’s experience with process design and mastery of software tools made the project painless and very transformative for Spark. With Dave’s help, we’ve taken what is often seen as a negative with agencies (not having formal processes) and made that a strength that’s helping us land new business.

L.K., Owner-Member – A-mation, LLC

Dave’s insight and knowledge of business practices and procedures has been extremely helpful to us. He has helped us define and implement standard operating procedures and financial reports as well as reviewing our promotional plans, which resulted in a marked improvement in sales results. Dave has become a valued member of our team, and I highly recommend him.

D.N., President - Sure-Dry Basement Systems, Inc.

We found you to be very candid, forthright, and honest.
