Paul Beste

Chief Operating Officer, Heartland Advisors:

“If you went to a larger consulting firm, you’d have some kid calling. Anne, with her experience as a business journalist, has a better basis for knowing how to interview people and perhaps engage them in areas where they may not feel as comfortable… It’s that listening skill --when someone says yes or no but their tone says there’s probably an issue there --and knowing how to get them to open up. The value to Heartland is in knowing what’s really behind their comments, both where there are issues and where there’s excitement.”

‟Anne wants you to be a client for life and wants to make sure you succeed. That’s something that really differentiates her.”
