"Carolyn brings a journalistic curiosity and great insight to all of her work.  She is a highly articulate writer who provides crisp, logical analysis. She takes complex or convoluted material and presents it in a digestible manner. Her prepared presentations are both easy to follow and understand."

Holly Hunt
Former Chief Marketing Officer

"In my association with Carolyn Cirillo over the past year, I never cease to be amazed at how much she gets done and how well and thoroughly she does it. She acts quickly to get work started, and follows-up persistently to make sure objectives are accomplished. She always has creative ideas about ways to get around perceived barriers, and she leverages a vast and strong network of colleagues and contacts to find the right resource for the right job. She's a creative, hard-working, problem-solver and her can-do attitude is second to none."

     – Gale Steves, Chief Creative Officer
Open House Productions
Author, “Right-Sizing Your Home"

 

"Carolyn has partnered with the Knoll research team to write several white papers for our Higher Education and Healthcare vertical markets. In the process, she has interviewed some of our key clients and contacts in the design community. The resulting papers have proven to be helpful tools in sharing Knoll's thought leadership and building relationships with both new and existing clients."

–Carol Crane, Vice President

"Having Carolyn on our team means that we don’t have to worry about any aspect of the project she is responsible for. She simply works her magic and the seemingly impossible becomes a reality. And when things get stressful or deadlines loom, she somehow manages to maintain a level of calm and sense of humor that eases tension and keeps things moving forward.

Not only is she is a great writer, she also has great ideas, follow-through and attention to detail, ensuring that our printed materials will be produced on time, look great and be filled with her terrific content. It is a pleasure to work with her and her efforts are part of the reason we have reached new levels of success with each passing year."

–Louisa Harrison, Event Coordinator
Avenues of Justice
Andrew Glover Youth Program

 

"Carolyn brings terrific research and writing skills and as well as insightful analysis to her work. She is highly resourceful in finding sources and relevant information and putting it together in a format that’s easily digested. Her series of three studies on the U.S. furniture industry provided our Japan-based client extremely useful insights into the North American marketplace that were of great benefit in their strategic planning. Highly recommend."

–Lew Auerhaan, Owner/President
  Neil Miles & Partners

 

 

"The quality of your entire staff, especially Janice Kaye and Carolyn Cirillo, is the finest I’ve had the pleasure of working with toward an objective. Our outstanding leasing results (double the projections) attest to the fine job they did."

–Earle Truax, Vice President
CalFed Enterprises

 

"Despite an extremely limited timeframe, Carolyn was able to understand my goals and positioning to produce results that were completely on target. Her efforts to publicize my work featured on a US postage stamp resulted in a significant story in the New York Times that was not only timely, but focused precisely on the qualities of the work I wanted to highlight."

–Dan Giancola, Artist
Conceptual, realistist, science fiction & fantasy Donato Arts

 

"With her deep knowledge of the interiors marketplace, Carolyn brought great insight into developing an on-target green marketing strategy for the American Hardwood Association.  Besides being very knowledgeable, she was extremely professional and easy to work with."

– Jacquelyn Ottman, Founder & Principal
J. Ottman Consulting Inc. Environmental Marketing
Author, “The New Rules of Green Marketing”

 

"Carolyn has been a tremendous asset, providing research and support, demonstrating outstanding analytical skills and conceptual ability. She has displayed excellent project management ability where, in particular, her excellent organizational skills served her well.

Carolyn’s grasp of marketing is superior. She has a strong intuitive understanding of the retail marketplace and has learned quickly the nuances of cosmetic marketing. Combined with that intuition is a strong ability to analyze raw data, quickly assimilate it and create reports that track currently activities and give us a benchmark to plan future projects accurately. She has also displayed a talent for assembling large amounts of diverse data and organizing it into a format that can be reviewed quickly and easily."
