You will not find a better mind than Todd Coleman’s. Period. He is truly brilliant. His perceptive insights always cut to the very essence of what we are trying to do/convey. I learn more about our company, who we are, why we do what we do, every time I hire Todd. I cannot recommend him highly enough.
