Rare ability to envision long-term strategy
“Catherine has the rare ability to envision a long term strategy and execute with calculated achievable steps. She is an excellent communicator, both internally and externally, and has an innate ability to know how to connect the right message to the right audience. Her events are fun, seamless and are executed with an ease that belies the keen attention to detail at which she excels.”
“Catherine gets results. Our revenues have increased yearly, 53 percent in 2012. But her value to Athletes Without Limits far exceeds fundraising. Since joining us as a startup non-profit, she has been a trusted advisor regarding organizational and board development, partnerships and key programmatic decisions.”
— Barry Holman, head coach and founding president, Athletes Without Limits
Tireless, upbeat sales professional
“I contracted with Catherine on more than one occasion as a sales consultant for national sponsorship sales because she is a fantastic sales person. She’s tireless, upbeat, a great connector, creative and goal oriented.
“She consistently uncovered and developed solid sales leads and worked to identify creative solutions that would result in successful sales relationships.”
— Jennifer English, Senior Director Promotion and Partnerships, PBS
Demonstrates the value proposition to clients
“Catherine is an extremely organized, articulate, knowledgeable marketing and fundraising professional. I had the pleasure of watching Catherine generate multi-million dollar corporate commitments on behalf of the PBS sponsorship portfolio. This required a comprehensive game plan on how to best generate revenue for the entire portfolio and then conducting in-depth research on how to best approach a targeted prospect base for each program.
“Catherine excelled in every facet of the process. By demonstrating the value proposition to her clients, sponsors were able to understand their return on investment. As one could imagine, she built up a tremendous roster of clients and contacts through the years, including media planners/buyers, corporate and foundation executives, from medium to large corporate and non-profit entities.”
