"I've worked with Derek for over ten years across multiple organizations. I first worked with Derek when he was at Handango. Derek drove an ambitious product and ecosystem strategy that resulted in several firsts for the mobile industry, including the first Appstore for BlackBerry, and the first OEM/carrier partnership focused around apps. Amazing that a single person from a small company was able to drive so much innovation, and helped change the world! Derek has the unique ability to think incredibly big, but also break progress into small, actionable tasks. When I think back to the products he helped create and deals he helped close, it should be a beacon and example for being lean, focused, and driven."

- Evan Silverman, Executive Vice President, Digital Media, A+E Networks
I've known Derek for 12 years. We first worked together when he was leading business development projects at Handango and I was at Verizon. Derek was instrumental in leading us through the launch and expansion up a successful mobile apps ecosystem business. Throughout the process, his efforts were smart, timely and well-executed. Derek has proven to be bright, energetic, innovative and highly considerate of meeting his client's interests and priorities. Beyond these talents, and most importantly, Derek is reliable and always shows a keen sense of knowing what needs to be done and how. He gets my highest recommendation.

"We were looking for a more boutique firm so we could get as dedicated a relationship from senior-level people as possible. The firm was able to bring the resources of a large company together with the dedication and focus of a more client-centric, boutique consulting firm. Their focus on results, proactive philosophy and honesty are the three traits that stand out most in their engagement. The ROI on our project took less than one month and I would not hesitate to bring them in to a future engagement."
