"Adri Lynch (our fractional CMO) has been excellent. She is extremely intelligent, has a lot of useful marketing knowledge, generates quite a few good ideas, and has good reasoning behind her ideas. She has helped us switch to better vendors more quickly than we otherwise would have (and to better vendors than we otherwise would have), negotiates hard on our behalf for great terms in marketing deals our company enters into, and she also has a lot of great energy."
Matt Hedman, Founder, The Perfect Workout

"I wanted to thank you for the excellent work and significant contributions you made as a fractional CMO for Best of Organic LLC. I was impressed how quickly you were able to review and recommend improvements and enhancements to the brand strategy. Your work on repositioning and expanding the brand for more consumers, designing new labels which highlighted benefits and detailed usage occasions was some of the best work I have seen. I appreciated your working with the team to make connections with service providers and establish sound marketing processes and budgets. Your willingness to dig into small but important daily issues was also very impressive. You were very flexible with your time which helped with everyone’s busy schedules. I would recommend you very highly!"
