"CML was seeking an objective, intelligent third party to research, formulate and deliver a clear view of the overall landscape of the current and future grants available for our target market from the US government at the federal, state and local level. We needed someone who could gather, organize and understand the enormous amount of information available. Dr. Pistrui not only achieved our stated goals, but he took the process 2 steps beyond what we had expected. His analysis and insights have helped us move faster than we had thought we could. We will be working with Dr. Pistrui more in the near future."
John K. Thompson – Vice President Marketing & Product Management, CML Emergency Services, Inc., Gatineau, Quebec, Canada
