“Working with Todd is refreshing and effective, each of the small successes restore a bit of excitement in work that was starting to feel like a grind, like running in place, feeling our evolution and it’s full of promise.

He calls it ‘Produce Therapy’ and we already see the progress, the impact on performance and the revitalization of bottom line, and position and strategy for a strong team that produces big moving forward. I have faith in his guidance, and am satisfied and hopeful with the results, I appreciate his no nonsense, big-picture-insight-while-rolling -up-his sleeves approach. I am very excited we made the TLC investment in ourselves, in our team.”
