What clients and colleagues say: 

“Effective communication and a coordinated approach between co-located properties on diverse platforms can be a challenge. Mary-Claire helped us achieve our mission of operational integration and synergies for all of our Washington properties. As a result of her comprehensive and hands-on approach, we’ve made tremendous gains in the key areas of efficiency and effectiveness.”

~Fred Ryan, President and CEO, Allbritton Communications

“Our busy A/V unit needed to evolve to a full-service operation to meet the on-going demands of the organization. MC Strategy provided us with in-depth evaluation and a detailed plan for complete re-organization and build-out of the production group. Mary-Claire acted as interim department head, helping us manage everything from new positions and procedural development to employee training and budget development. Her guidance on an overhaul of internal service pricing helped me create revenue generation for the department, which was key in demonstrating our financial value to the organization.”

~Mary Beth Pate, Sr. Manager, Strategic Events and New Media, Cleveland Clinic Foundation
