testimonials

San Diego Mayor Kevin L. Faulconer

"When I decided to run for mayor I met with Tony and asked him if he would be part of my team. Tony has an excellent understanding of media, messaging and strategy. He excelled on a team that has been nationally recognized for its success."

 

Kristen Victor, Principal, Sustainability Matters

“Tony is an integral part of Sustainability Matters, providing valuable, long term, relationship-based connections and access to both the San Diego media and politicos, giving our firm a much needed platform to voice our advocacy work. Tony drives from a very authentic place, always bringing his midwest roots to the table, which greets you with a smile, a bit of a Michigan rivalry and impeccable execution. Our successes include Water Reuse regulatory framework with the City of San Diego, EcoDistrict community engagement in Pacific Beach and Sustainability Matters project-based messaging. Most importantly, Tony provides strategic insight on how best to navigate our efforts with an ethical, thoughtful and successful approach on any issue we bring to him. I am fortunate to have Tony as a friend, sharing our families and enjoying time together.”

Bob Nelson, Chairman, Board of Port Commissioners

"Tony is an excellent strategist who I've been fortunate to work with. His instincts, especially when it comes to crisis communication, are outstanding and so is the service he provides. As a longtime communications professional, I can tell you without hesitation that Tony is a pro's pro. I value his insights on issues large and small. He's a trusted advisor and a good friend."
