“Anne came to work with us at a time when we were rapidly scaling and creating several new departments in a short period of time. It was critical for us to articulate and clarify our cross-functional roles and responsibilities, and workflows. Anne came to the rescue. She diligently worked with department teams and leaders, and made sure to listen to everyone’s input. She synthesized a tremendous amount of information and was able to simplify the complex. Anne was a catalyst for our company to get organized at a critical juncture of growth. She helped us take our organization to the next level.”
