Praise for our leadership

I believe that any organization would be very fortunate to have a chance to work with you.

Saleem Zaru, Executive Director United Palestinian Appeal: Washington, DC

If I hadn’t met Sarah Williams, I would still be flailing, scattered, and feeling very alone on this entrepreneurial journey. Sarah meets me exactly where I am in every moment, offering a kind of support that communicates to me that she is just as invested as I am in watching me succeed.

Soha Al-Jurf, MA, CCC-SLP Tuscon, AZ

Sarah Williams is a true collaborator in my business—the adviser I’d been seeking for a decade, but I had no idea how to find. Like a partner in a loosely-choreographed dance, she elegantly alternates between leading and following my lead, unafraid to go wherever my imagination and ambition might take us. And yet, she is grounded and clear enough in my overall mission that she knows how to bring us back to a center point where we are moving consistently in the direction of my vision.

An empathetic, hands-on business owner and leader that enjoys helping companies and their constituents reach their goals and beyond—that is the 816 New York Evolution! You have a great sense of purpose, style, and competence.

Jerry Weinstein, Certified Business Mentor SCORE: New York, NY

I met Sarah Williams through a mutual friend in the housing industry. At that time, we were in the process of rebranding our agency as well as creating a website. This process can be very difficult, mainly due to the significant demand and level of coordination and involvement necessary to see this type of project through. Ms. Williams made this process and experience seamless. Sarah is professional, prompt with her responses, and provided us with her style and guidance that made everyone involved have a wonderful experience.

Efrain Rolon, Executive Director Lawrence Housing Authority: Lawrence, MA

I am grateful for your involvement. I am really pleased with the way we were able to work quickly, collaboratively, and toward a very good outcome.

Oslene Carrington, CEO Guyana Economic Development Trust: New York, NY / Guyana

Thank YOU so much for all the great work you continue to do with us and your professionalism and patience.

Elizabeth Lusskin, Executive Director Long Island City Partnership: New York, NY

For any mission to be complete, we have to have Trust. We didn’t meet for no reason. I am a very spiritual person and I believe this partnership is a blessing given to us.

Tony Brown, Founder & Executive Director Southern CC: Fayetteville, NC

Thank you for the brand brief. You did an amazing job capturing and synthesizing all the things we've talked about.

David Hom, Founder Malama: New York, NY

I want to express my gratitude for putting these assets together and in general for continuing to work with us trying to establish a wonderful new design & approach for our newsletter.

Fransiscus Ismaël, PR & Outreach Officer Nalandabodhi International

The website looks completely awesome. We're getting mega-compliments and kudos. You really did fantastic work for us. It's a pleasure to look at and use. And it was a pleasure working with you on this.

Mary Ellen Lowney, Communications & Community Relations Manager Springfield Housing Authority: Springfield, MA

On behalf of our little precious team, I wish to express our appreciation for the work you have done. We really enjoy working with you and it feels supportive in many ways.

Fransiscus Ismaël, PR & Outreach Officer Nalandabodhi International

I simply know that an angel sent your number to me… I just don’t know how to explain that I found in you exactly what I was dreaming of for the last three years.

Shelley Jansen, Owner Bikram Yoga Glastonbury: Glastonbury, CT

Recommendations on how to utilize keywords within blog posts to draw in clients work like a charm. Just google “Builders Risk Insurance Connecticut” and see where Olde Liberty Insurance falls – it’s # 1 on page 1 of a bazillion pages.

Andrew Borner, Owner Olde Liberty Insurance: Wethersfield, CT

Within 5 minutes of that email blast, 2 online sales. The coolest is that most are coming from either new students or ones I haven’t seen in a long time! Yahoo!

Shelley Jansen, Owner Bikram Yoga Glastonbury: Glastonbury, CT

Having my brand depicted like this, gives such a great perspective. I especially love the breakdown of the audience, the accurate descriptions and putting a face to who I want to really help makes it very personal which is important for me! Love it 🙂

Raquel Nowak, Owner Bump2Beyond: New York, NY

816 New York understands communication, design, and technology. That collection of skills and knowledge enables them to deliver turnkey solutions with minimal work and/or feedback from the customer. Working with vendors like 816 New York allows me to continue to do more with less.

Stephen Ethier, Director of IT Springfield Housing Authority: Springfield, MA

AWESOME results this weekend at the open house, a big turn out and big sales Friday through Monday, so far! Thank you to the moon and back for your support.

Shelley Jansen, Owner Bikram Yoga Glastonbury: Glastonbury, CT

I can't thank you enough for all that you did over the years and the awesome work you and your team did for TCE. I'm so grateful we have had the chance to work together and truly value our friendship.

Maria Hebda, Founder & CEO The Career Experts: Detroit, MI

Without a doubt, it takes someone with your creativity and expertise to tame this monster. I plan to recommend you to all of my colleagues as a resource in website and brand development.

Maria Hebda, Founder & CEO The Career Experts: Detroit, MI

Thanks so much for all your hard work in getting the website up and also in developing the Bump2Beyond brand! You and your team understood where I wanted to go and took the time to help me get there despite the personal setbacks I experienced along the way. I am grateful for the professionalism and compassion you took to my project.

Raquel Nowak, Owner Bump2Beyond: New York, NY

I felt I was talking to someone who cared and understood my problem in just a few minutes. I can't thank you enough.

Evaggelia Makaleka, Owner YES! English Language Center: Greece

I had a 90-minute meeting with the Director of Marketing for Staples Inc., and I asked her what she thought of our website and branding. They said it was excellent! She absolutely loved it and was extremely complimentary about your work. Had to pass that on!

Gary Peterson, Managing Director Peterson Madsen Group: Boston, MA

Your work is extremely good, and we all love what you’re doing. Kudos to you and your team! I haven’t seen this kind of action on LinkedIn in a long time. I’m quite impressed.

Gary Peterson, Founder & Managing Partner Lux Global Partners: New York, NY

We love what you’ve done! We ALL agree that the brand brief is fabulous! Thanks for being so prompt and professional with everything; we so appreciate it. The Channel Partner brochure is getting rave reviews!

Gary Peterson, Founder & Managing Partner Lux Global Partners: New York, NY

I’ve been really impressed with the 816 New York team’s ability to pull everything together. I work with a good amount of vendors that can only get you 85% of the way through a project.

Stephen Ethier, Director of IT Springfield Housing Authority: Springfield, MA

You rock! Thanks for all your input. You are a wealth of information. I always hold you in the highest regard!

Brad Nevins, Director of Sales ClassicPlan: Chino, CA

You are so incredibly appreciated. Thank you for helping us focus. I don’t know what we would have done without you – for real.

Abby Kiesa, CIRCLE's Deputy Director, Tufts University 22x20 Campaign: New York, NY

The site has been a huge success! Everyone loved it including the web person for Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices. Most of our leads come from the site.

Joel Rottman, COO/Deputy Director The Goodwin: West Hartford, CT

Thank you so much for your vision for us!

Melissa Robinson, Co-Founder Robinson/Scholastic Objectives : Norfolk, CT

I could cry right now … and I might! It is awesome and exactly the direction we should go!

Anita Nevins, President Spark Online Events: Fairfield, CA

Thanks for all your hard work. You’ve been a pleasure to work with.

Fiona Asple, Director, Information Technology RIC Insurance General Agency: Santa Rosa, CA

What’s nice about working with you is that we’re working on branding AND how to strategically and effectively get my message across via my websites, social media, and any other online resource that’s available out there!

Maria Hebda, Founder & CEO The Career Experts: Detroit, MI

If 816 New York were in the business of tying you a knot, yours would be tight. You have an idea. They work with you to bring it to life. They will work closely with you on what’s important to you and your business from inception to launch—and on all the details in between. I have received nothing but positive feedback on my branding and website from friends, family, colleagues, and clients alike.

Andrew Borner, Owner Olde Liberty Insurance: Wethersfield, CT

I wouldn’t even think about using another branding / website company. Without hesitation I give the 816 New York name and number to anyone I come across that’s in the market for these services.

Andrew Borner, Owner Olde Liberty Insurance: Wethersfield, CT

The campaign speaks to the professional and gets immediate attention. The colors draw the businessperson and the text format grabs you when scanning the card. I think it will offer a quick response. Thanks for all your hard work and ideas.
