"Simply put, IGNITE gets it! They understand nothing else matters but delivering results.
And they deliver! By combining strategic leadership, a deep knowledge of technology,
and strong connections in the industry to drive media and industry coverage, IGNITE ensured
our product launch made a solid impact and got high profile visibility in a very noisy data storage market."

Floyd Christofferson

Chairman of the Board of the Active Archive Alliance
Director of Storage Product Marketing at SGI

“IGNITE Consulting brings a strategic perspective to every aspect of the Active Archive Alliance’s
public relations program. They understand the active archive market and the value our members
bring to it. Not only has IGNITE increased our coverage and mindshare, but they are flexible,
energetic and a pleasure to work with.”

“With its strong focus on technology, IGNITE Consulting is a strategic partner. We trust their in-depth
technical knowledge and proven ability to create compelling, impactful product-focused marketing
content. We are incredibly impressed with their team; they’re strategic, know the market, have strong
relationships within the industry and tenaciously execute our marketing strategies. We always know
we are in capable hands with IGNITE.”

Arun Taneja

“With so many PR firms, it’s nice to deal with a group that has strong technology expertise.
I don’t have to spend time teaching the team at IGNITE about the industry, where their clients
fit in or what their clients are trying to say.”

John Spiers

“IGNITE’s ability to hone NexGen Storage’s messaging and to secure meetings with key
influencers in the industry resulted in a very successful company launch. The buzz they
created within the market produced tremendous results for us and directly increased sales,
generated leads and drove investor inquiries
. I’ve worked with IGNITE on behalf of several
companies and recommend them highly.”

IGNITE is outstanding – energetic, hands-on and very strategic. They increased coverage 55%

and launched an effective social media program and provided high-value marketing
support
before and after Hewlett-Packard acquired the company.”

For private, pre-IPO companies, IGNITE’s innovative Investor Relations’ programs provide
an efficient way to establish credibility, build relationships with key influencers, and enhance
the equity valuation.
 IGNITE’s proactive IR outreach program helped us build our business
reputation within the financial markets and put us in an excellent position for either an IPO or
a strategic sale. For us, it was a smart move that really paid off.”

Former Chairman and CEO, McDATA

Jack McDonnell

“Kathleen and Linda are true pros. They built McDATA’s public relations and investor relations

and what will garner business, analyst and industry coverage in a competitive market.
Their ability to consistently deliver results is a rare commodity."

Mark Smith

“With a focus on management credibility, strong relationships with Wall Street, and precise

on which to build our IR program.”
