“Guy is one of the brightest minds I know in the changing world of publishing. He is keenly aware of the forces that are transforming the media industry, and has real-world insight and ability to improve the businesses he works for. When he offers two cents on any issue, I’m always listening and often acting on it. He is also a passionate, articulate, and generous person, who works well in a team environment, but is also an incredible manager and leader of people—without a large ego attached.”

—Jane Friedman, Publishing Consultant and Writer

“Guy is one of the best media and marketing people I have ever worked with in publishing. He is the guy that no matter what you send to him, it comes back better than you could have imagined. We built a start up venture project together that overcame many obstacles and required new thinking, but experienced execution. He brought both and is just a fun and nice person to work along side.”

—Mitchell Davis, Founder & CEO, BiblioBoard

“During the four (4) years Guy and I worked together at Media Source, we collaborated to develop a multi-year strategic plan designed to provide a clear mission to the entire team and to get buy-in from executive management and the Board (private-equity owned). We successfully transacted two (2) times in four (4) years, and Guy’s efforts and contributions were key to our success. Guy possesses the rare ability to ‘see’ a vision, but also implement it through operational execution.”

—Ian Singer, GM, Credo Reference – Infobase Holdings, Credo Reference
