"Andy Garvin has been an invaluable resource to me providing both general guidance and advice, as well as working on specific projects. He has an ability to bring together a mass of detail and different viewpoints in a way that makes coherent sense and leads to actionable plans and options. At the same time he contributes a stream of insights and ideas, particularly in the areas of sales and marketing.
Andy works well with managers at all levels, always follows up and his responsiveness is the best. I would recommend him for virtually any consulting or advisory role or assignment." Gerard Modius CEO Opinion Research Corp.
"During thirty five years of doing business with Andy Garvin, I was able to observe how he built a company from scratch into a $50 million enterprise. During those years, I have personally watched him conceive of numerous creative business solutions for his corporate clients. As one of his very first clients, I was able to see his management ability first hand as he created an organization that was a first of a kind. By meeting the business intelligence and consulting needs of thousands of corporate executives and their staffs nationwide, he successfully created a wide range of effective solutions to each client's business problems.
More recently I joined forces with him as a partner in a new venture devoted to meeting the needs of the burgeoning baby boomer market, which has given me a first hand knowledge of his skills, energy, integrity and ability to apply his experience to to business opportunities." Fred V. Rubenstein Former Exec.V.P. and Board Member Institutional Investor, Inc.
"As counsel to, and a member of the Board of Directors of, Guideline, Inc. (nee Find/SVP) for many years, I have had the pleasure of working with Andy on matters ranging from day-to-day management related issues to a public offering of the Company's securities. In every instance, I have watched Andy conduct himself in a diligent, intelligent, thoughtful and ethical manner. Andy is a person who does his homework, looks for intelligent input from others and comes up with thoughtful solutions to problems. Andy's experience in the business world makes him an ideal mentor, coach and consultant to those seeking to build successful businesses." Howard S. Breslow, Esq. Partner Breslow & Walker, LLP
"Garvin Associates assisted me on two projects involving difficult challenges. One was increasing our sales to convenience store outlets and the other was improving our website. In both cases Mr. Garvin personally designed the creative research approach needed and got the work done in a timely and efficient manner, contributing valuable insights in his report." Joe Angel President Angel's Bakeries
