What some of our clients have to say…

“The best decision I ever made in my marketing career was hiring Linda Russo. She has the uncanny ability to jump right into a situation, figure out what needs to be done and then do it. She is creative, resourceful and energetic. Linda is the most solid, most hardworking, most talented person I have ever worked with. Linda is a professional—a team player—who always puts the job first and always gets results.”
Bernard Mendillo

Writer and former Creative Services Manager, Eastern Utilities (now National Grid)

“Linda is a consummate team member and provides timely, responsive and high-quality client services. She clearly identifies and understands the objectives and needs of the client and/or project and delivers end products that always meet and often exceed expectations. I highly recommend Linda for marketing related work, strategy, copywriting, client relations and communications. Linda has vast experience and knowledge in the utility and energy efficiency industries and applies her marketing communication skills to get results for clients.”

Dan Dent

VP, DSM E Source; former VP, Utility Services, Nexant

“Linda took on a near-impossible task with an unreasonable timeline under the direction of a committee peopled by organizations with differing and disparate motives. All clear danger signs. Linda, and those under her direction, developed a coherent theme, a stylish logo, and produced beautiful designs, copy, and program materials of such high quality and on such a tight schedule, that it has truly amazed and pleased all involved.”
