Testimonials:
“After interviewing and screening several potential and well qualified consulting firms, we engaged CMC. That single decision changed our organization, and their efforts strategically and effectively redirected our focus. Beyond just a simple job as consultants, they became personally involved in driving us to explore opportunities, to identify funds, and to effectively implement an executable program. Their commitment to our success led us to hire them as a management consulting team. I am glad we did.” Dr. Emmitt R. Jolly, Assistant Professor of Biology, Case Western Reserve University
; President, The AUMF
“I have worked with consulting firms with good and bad outcomes while in “big pharma” in the past; however most recently, I haveworked with CMC and they have given me my single-best consulting experience. CMC is without peer when it comes to examining the internal workings of an organization. They adroitly found ways that we as clients could reach operational goals by identifying funding streams, restructuring leadership, leveraging networks, enhancing ideation, and reallocating resources. Most importantly, they remained engaged with us to ensure their recommendations and changes were enacted. We have now decided to hire them in an ongoing management capacity. Dr. Matthew Walker III, Principal, Strategic Imaging Biomarkers Consulting, LLC; and Principal Consultant at SonoSite; Executive Leadership Team,The AUMF
“As Vice-President and a member of the Strategic Planning Committee for the Association of UNCF-Merck Fellows (The AUMF), I ascharged with interviewing and recommending a qualified consulting firm to our Board of Directors (BOD). Compared to the many consulting firms that were interviewed, CMC was the most prepared with the strongest management proposal. CMC continues to demonstrate the highest degree of professionalism and dedication to the success of The AUMF. Their dedication and high quality of work has led the BOD of The AUMF to secure CMC as our Management Team to continue to move us along to fulfill our mission. We are confident they can do this.” Dr. Marcus Jones, Vice-President, The J. Craig Venter Institute (JCVI); Vice President, The AUMF
