“Alan Bergstein provided the New England Journal of Medicine with a professional, in-depth analysis of a potential growth-market opportunity. He was thorough in scope, attentive to our questions and concerns, and creative yet practical in his recommendations, which will enable our organization to make more educated decisions on a shorter timetable than if we had been able to do this ourselves.”

“Alan offers an outstanding blend of strategic thinking and execution and he is someone who is quickly able to translate a high level opportunity into actionable plans. He is able to envision and leverage trends and can rapidly mobilize an organization. I found Alan to be a patient teacher, a creative problem-solver, an insightful customer advocate, a consummate team player, and a burgeoning leader. While he took his work very seriously, he approached it with an unquenchable sense of humor that broke down barriers and cemented collaboration. He’s driven and focused and consistently gets the job done!”

Tim L. Tobeck Vice President & Publishing Director Vance Publishing Corporation

“Alan worked with me at Energy Central as Vice President of Digital Media. My role as Senior VP was to manage all products: print, digital, events and research for the Marketing Service Group. Alan is extremely knowledgable about the most current and most effective digital trends….what’s working and what is hype. He also has an affinity for customers. He understands them, asks the right questions and delivers what they are looking for….in my book, that means he delivered what we needed to move forward with our digital offerings. Alan demonstrated expertise in developing both websites and newsletters and was moving us rapidly toward a successful launch of virtual events. I have worked with great technical people, good managers and great sales people. Alan is one of the rare professionals that brings all these attributes together.
I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a senior staff member or outside consultant to drive your digital product development.
