Work and Feedback
Ben Pfeifer, CEO
A future-of-work startup funded by 25Madison
“I hired Otto in the earliest days of Limelight and I’m very glad I did. He created the core language for our company messaging, along with the content in all of the channels where we use that language: sales, marketing, my board, and the team. He is a communicator at heart but brings his business and entrepreneurial experience to every meeting. A conversation with Otto about communications almost always leads to a larger discussion about strategy. He helped us understand our business, the competitive landscape, and the long-term opportunity. He listens, is a great team player, and a self-starter. He gets it done.”
Daniel Mason, EVP Sales and Strategy
“We brought in Otto to help develop a new PR strategy and simplify our company messaging, which was inherently difficult due to the technological complexity of our products and specific subject matter of our use cases in the financial services industry. Otto did an excellent job simplifying messaging, bringing a creative and strategic approach, while learning a lot of deep industry information in record time to deliver results. Otto also understands the media and went to work immediately building rapport with journalists on behalf of our company. I would highly recommend Otto for strategic communications or PR needs, especially for rapidly-growing companies. ”
Brad Simmons, CMO Figure
“Otto is extremely thoughtful and built a phenomenal foundation for our communications and PR as we prepared for our unicorn fundraising round. His data-driven research about home mortgage borrowing in America clearly showed his investigative journalism background. It was creative, insightful, and became the foundation for a months-long ad campaign that drove substantial business results.”
