When you’re absorbed in the daily challenges of running a business, it’s often difficult to disengage and focus on the long-term strategies that will drive revenue and profitability. Sutcliffe + Whalen can help you reenergize your strategic activities and put experience and expertise behind the decisions and actions that will increase the value of your business.
Mark and Pat brought experience and professionalism, plus the benefit of a thoughtful, detached perspective, to my business. They helped me shift my focus from day-to-day operations to addressing the key long-term priorities that I was always too busy to work on in the past.
We’ve been working very closely with Pat and Mark for several months and they’ve been instrumental in helping us implement systems and processes to grow our business. This year marks the 20th anniversary of MARSWorks and even with our experience, we’ve found that Pat and Mark bring a fresh perspective. We know these ideas will not just be talked about but acted upon, thanks to their help.
Mark brings to the table a unique combination of reputation, creative energy, storytelling, and enthusiasm. What makes PWL different is not an easy story to tell, nor is PWL a household name, yet Mark has been instrumental in crafting and delivering high quality messages in a variety of formats for us, and we are very pleased with the results.
Pat epitomizes how a hardworking, loyal, trustworthy, knowledgeable and experienced professional deals with people, business and clients. An expert in sales and marketing, Pat compliments that experience with sound financial and business management, strategic planning and operations.
Mark has assisted me with a number of long term projects that required vision and patience. These were generally complicated projects with many moving parts and deadlines. Mark was able to help me focus on the end vision and then break down the projects in manageable pieces with achievable timeframes, acting as a quarterback in keeping the focus on what needed to be accomplished and in what order.
Experienced, smart, good listener and firm decision-maker. We have not always seen eye to eye on every issue but we have always worked to a resolution that is fair and best for both parties. Such qualities of toughness, experience, having his feet on the ground, awareness of the necessary details, good communicator, team player and reasonable partner is, in my 30 + years of experience in this industry, very hard to find.
