"Our team was challenged to evaluate a new market opportunity and build a brand from the ground up. Given limited resources, time, and expertise, EMC Strategy, LLC stepped in to provide needed support. Elizabeth isn’t afraid to ask the tough questions, and her work resulted in a deeper understanding of the new market, and rich consumer insights, which she led the team to parlay into a differentiated brand positioning. The analysis helped confirm our decision to enter this new market and created the foundation for a new brand and product line to be launched later this year. We wouldn’t have been able to do it without Elizabeth’s help! On top of these results and impact, Elizabeth is a pleasure to work with — I can’t recommend her highly enough."
