Robin Turner
Thanks to Dianne Jones with Development Advisors, O’Leary Group secured the waste & recycling contract with her client, Kessler, Inc. Dianne took the time to understand my prospect model and has been intentional to send leads my way. In the case of Kessler, Dianne made a warm introduction to my decision-maker. We advised Kessler along the way of their space needs for waste management equipment and when they were ready, they naturally turned to us for the solution. Dianne, I am in your debt!
