“Having done start-ups with Alan on two occasions I can honestly say he is one of the most creative yet strategic publishing executives I have known. With all the changes in the publishing industry, he is the kind of executive you want on your team as he “gets it.” He understands how to make the brave new world of media pay. And he is a leader, not simply a manager. Someone who is inspiring to all who know him. I’ve known and worked for Alan on and off for 15 years and found him to be an open and honest collaborator, effective sales manager and creative publication executive. We did a lot of great work for clients together. He’s a good motivational guy and gives you the tools you need to do your job.”
