This type of branding work helped land HP in unexpected places (Sundance Film Festival, X-Games, MTV Music Awards). Stacy raised the profile of HP's CMO with placements like Advertising Age's Marketer of the Year and recognition in Oprah Magazine. She was an inspiring manager and brought sincere enthusiasm to her global campaigns."

On all counts, Stacy excelled and was a trusted partner. Her willingness to collaborate and focus on achieving results helped ensure we were successful.”

"I just had the enormous pleasure of having dinner with Stacy a few weeks ago, she vetted some ideas for me and in a real time brainstorming session she offered some of the most incredible approaches to a new business I'm considering. I have always admired Stacy, I had forgotten how current and relevant her thinking always is, she really has a pulse on exactly what is happening "NOW", in a way I've never been able to accomplish. I am so excited and pleased with the ideas she gave me, and that she was so willing and eager to support me in my endeavors. I hope she realizes that I'll be coming back of MORE!"
