Think Eileen is awesome?
Vouch for them.

Alex Humphreys
We worked together  •  Associate Vice President, JSTOR Labs and New Business Development, ITHAKA.
Eileen is a tremendous leader, capable both of starting up entirely new and transformational ventures and also turning around existing organ ... izations. She has a remarkable way of leading people to do more and be more than they might think possible, and to do so in a very human and humane manner. I am privileged to have seen her do it.
Salty Thomason
They're my friends  •  Previously Owner/President & CEO, Company Sold November 2014: Pella Windows & Doors of Houston. The University of Texas at Austin grad.
A great advisor must first be a good listener, curious, empathetic (able to see things from another person's perspective), and they must be ... fundamentally a kind and loving person. Eileen is all of these things. She is also very bright and is able to assess varied situations very quickly. A gifted observer of people, she is also able to offer advice and perspectives from a human behavioral standpoint without the need to be the expert in the subject matter being discussed. This makes her uniquely qualified to advise on a wide range of subjects in a wide range of industries. I trust her judgment and intuition.

Alex is a visionary. He is able to see opportunity, map it to emerging market needs, and then describe a path forward in a way that is ener ... gizing, generates excitement, and makes going ahead sound like incredible, crazy fun. He is smart, creative, and pragmatic - a terrific, and rare, mix. I had a blast having Alex on my team, and we achieved much together!
