“As our client manager for our major gift officer and our mid-level giving program, Bob was able to help us get both of these programs up and on their feet. His ability to be patient, yet hold our team accountable for implementing our strategies helped us increase our revenues significantly, better reach out to our donors, and have procedures to do it over and over. Bob is also up-to-date on marketing trends and organizational development concepts, and has been helpful through staff transitions as a clear, consistent voice of reason. He is smart, experienced and engaging. I would highly recommend Bob’s work as a fundraising counselor to anyone!”

“Bob Simrak is among the most clever, insightful, and intuitively smart individuals I’ve worked with over my 37 year career. He understands how the world works, how people work, and what moves people. From a development perspective, Bob understands all aspects and areas required to achieve world-class results and knows these things when he sees them. He also immediately ascertains when something is missing the mark. These include but aren’t limited to:
– Crafting a strong vision
– Messaging that vision in a compelling way – especially for the desired target market
– Engaging with prospective constituents – focusing first on them, their needs, their desires
– Understanding and engaging the power of powerful stories to develop deep connections
– The mechanics of truly exceptional execution that leverages various (and proper) tools, methods, and touch-points.

Bob is a rare find who would bring incredible wisdom, insight and guidance to any organization seeking to grow its brand and constituency. I offer my highest endorsement of Bob to any and all who might consider engaging him.”

“Dr. David Wells was a wonderful asset as his interventions and advice were assertive and they guided us into better processes.  His disposition and dedication to the school were at all times visible in everything he did for DelCampo.

His services have been of great value to me (as a school owner), to our school board, to the school’s management team, and to my family.  Specifically, David coached me in a number of vital areas related to school ownership and governance structures, and he drafted a set of governance policies which have been adopted by our school’s board. To our Interim Superintendent he provided training and professional development. To the leadership team in our school he also guided them in the decision-making processes directing them to the following of best practices.

David is knowledgeable in matters related to ownership, governance, and management of proprietary schools; handles critical information in a confidential and supportive manner. He is extremely ethical and his professionalism is evident in everything he does. While working for DelCampo he ensured that our school mission, vision and values were placed first in all tasks that were given to him. He works under a set system of values, which make his work not only excellent but also reliable.

Without a doubt, I can assure you that Dr. Wells will be an asset to your institution as he was for us here at DelCampo. If further information is needed please do not hesitate to contact me as it will be an honor for me to give more words of recommendation to a wonderful person as Dr. David Wells.”
