    Jim Lewis
    Chief Growth Officer at Curb Crowser

    ''I have had the pleasure of knowing Frank and working with him on several different projects over the past 20+ years. This all started in the photo industry, where Frank had deep experience/knowledge/understanding not only of the current but the history of photo migrating to retail/mass markets. More recently I have engaged with Frank on projects that relate more to retail, personalized products and how today's consumers purchase. Frank has a deep knowledge base and an amazing Rolodex of contacts related to photo, retail and technologies that tie these together. One thing that I have alway admired is Franks ability to drill down to the facts that matter and delivering results supporting these. Frank has been a trusted partner and one that we hope to work closely with for years to come. Jim Lewis''.

    Consumer technology and retail

    "Frank is a gem, and a rare one -- his understanding of retail, and photo-and image-based business in general -- is unparalleled. Frank understand retailers from having been one. He understands suppliers from having worked with the biggest and the best. Yet he's a real innovator, with the heart of an entrepreneur. His ability to identify and articulate the opportunities, strategies and tactics appropriate to this industry is uncanny. Plus, Frank has formed solid, trusting relationships with almost every major player in the industry, so his network of contacts and experience is extraordinary. I know this recommendation runs the risk of seeming to good to be true, but I can vouch for every one of these comments -- I've worked with Frank numerous times, and know well his other clients and contacts and how pleased they've been."

    "I've known Frank since 2002. His fantastic repuation preceded him so I had always wanted to work with him which we finally had the chance to do when we hired him to help us grow the photo business at PhotoTLC in 2006. It's too bad we're only allowed to check three of the seven attributes offered when describing Frank. I could easily check all seven!


    Frank's deep knowledge of the industry, sterling reputation with top retailers/suppliers and his ability to recognize strategic opportunity is unparalleled in the photo category. He knows everyone, is very technology savvy and understands intricate political relationships that are often obstacles to winning business. He can also quickly determine the path to a deal as well as what's required to close it. He has a very high level of integrity, genuinely likes people, is very passionate about his work and is tireless even though, at this stage in his life, I doubt he has to work at all. Frank is always positive and charming and somehow knows the right thing to say (or not) at the right time. It's great to know him and I hope we get to work together again. I consider him a real mentor."
