"Cube Management provides us with first-class strategic sales and marketing leadership on a fractional basis--and at much lower cost than hiring a full-time executive. Outsourcing this work to Cube allows us to focus more of our resources on front-line sales producers, while making sure they are well managed. We're very pleased with the results that Cube has delivered, and our progress is clearly illustrated by our growth, 2004 was another great year for us, and we're very confident that we will continue the trend in 2005!"Hank Heath – CEO – On-Site Financial

Wayne, Russ and I have been working on a EVP Sales position for the past several weeks and I have submitted one of the candidates he sent to me.  I wanted to tell you that it has been a refreshing experience to work with him.  He understands the job, his approach is professional, and the candidate presentation he sends is the best I’ve ever experienced in the Top Echelon network.

"Cube Management developed a comprehensive Strategic Business Plan establishing the value proposition offered to each of the college’s market segments. This plan not only outlined the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats to the organization, but also examined the college’s ability to deliver on its value propositions. Through a series of interactive exercises facilitated by Wayne Cozad, the committee was able to identify key operational issues and define the operational culture desired. With Wayne Cozad’s help, the committee also examined the level of staffing required, instructor and administrative staff skill sets needed, detailed financial projections, as well as requirements for the physical structure and land resources. What’s more, key milestones and schedules were established, and risks/critical success factors of the organization were assessed and documented. “This planning process was the best thing we could have done!” commented Dan Graham of Associated General Contractors. “We now have a very well-defined road map that will help us make this exciting new business and educational opportunity a resounding success. Wayne Cozad did an outstanding job of designing a program that specifically met our needs, while professionally facilitating and documenting the entire exercise.”Dan Graham President & CEO Northwest College of Construction

"Cube Management accepted a time sensitive and challenging assignment for a search for a new National Sales Manager for my Company, GCI Solar. Their efforts yielded a select group of 8 candidates within two weeks. Ultimately, I personally interviewed 4 of the 8 after they were initially screened by Gayle Donner, Sr. Executive Recruiter. Her efforts were instrumental in mitigating the time constraints for me and my Executive Team.  We hired an exceptional candidate 6 weeks after the search commenced and are extremely happy with the process and results."Richard W. Killion, CEO – GCI Solar

Gayle Donner has been great to work with. I really appreciate the resources your firm has as well. Thanks!Joyce G. Simon – Corporate Search Resources, LLC

"The Sellwood Medical Clinic began treating patients on January 2, 2003 in the newly renovated Robert Sellwood Home on the corner of 13th Avenue and Harney Street in the heart of downtown Sellwood.  Cube Founder and Managing Partner, Wayne Cozad worked with us to create a facility renovation reminiscent of a Marcus Welby, MD set location.  The historic home has a waiting room with a real working fireplace and wood paneled walls allowing the clinic to feel more like a home than many of the sterile office based clinics of today. Wayne Cozad provided initial financial projections, employee recruiting, facility site selection, facility layout design, secured equipment financing, evaluated and secured computer billing, scheduling and networking software, and has provided daily operational and financial supervision and over-sight.  After three months of treating patients, the clinic is operating at breakeven and our patients are overwhelmed by the comfort and easy-going atmosphere that has been created in this historic style family practice health clinic."Charles Goldberg, MD – Sellwood Medical Clinic
