Role: Advisor to executive team
Peter Klinge has been my go-to advisor for several years. As director of marketing, I needed someone to turn to in challenging situations and I found his advice helped me to have greater clarity and a clearer path forward. At one point, he took my team through a process which helped us all to see issues we were so close to we couldn’t see them. Afterward, we had a better understanding of our role in the bank and what it meant to affect growth more directly.

“I hired Peter and his firm as interim director to look into our branded dental business unit at the beginning of 2012 when the business unit was at crisis. He showed his analytical and execution skills to help re-organize the business unit with a profit oriented budget in an 8 month period. He worked with the team to put the right marketing message for each key product, to organize the field sales activities, and to setup the dashboard to monitor the performance each area.
