>>Company Testimonials


"The team's output was well done and comparable to what we would get from consultants at a lot less cost. We provided three mentoring sessions for the students and they produced an excellent report." -  Kent McCormick, Director of Supply Chain Operations, AT&T

"The team did a good job getting unfiltered and unbiased information that was very useful.  The value of what we received for the cost is tremendous." - Paul Chavez, President, Chavez Foundation 

"We are striving to stay at the cutting edge of technology, so we look for opportunities. We'll be evaluating and looking to implement a number of the AMR recommendations." - Sam Klooster, M&A Strategy, Lockheed Martin 

"I was impressed with the depth of work and time and energy interviewing others in the industry," he continues. "We received not just data, but insights, as well." - Apu Mody, President, Mars Foods North America 

"I'd recommend AMR if a company is looking for an innovative way to solve a business problem and uncover a solution." - Adam Stein, Managing Partner, M&A Real Estate Partners 

"We received a great benefit from the students, who had a fresh perspective. Plus, they laid out ideas that we hadn't thought about and explained how we might approach the implementation.  They affirmed that some of strategies that we are considering are current and on target." - Tony Padilla - Director of Patient Affairs and Volunteer Services, UCLA Health Systems
