Imre LLC

We are entering our third year of a relationship with Darryl Salerno….and it keeps getting better.  In that time, Darryl has helped us increase our margin by 100%, tighten up financial controls and build a professional development system that has helped us coach up managers at our company. Darryl brings big agency skills and knowledge to work for our mid-sized firm, something that we would not otherwise be able to afford or find.  He’s got the P&L knowledge, but he has also helped us get behind the numbers to real management issues that have set us up for success. Lastly, Darryl is a tremendous asset for me, personally.  I have used him as a sounding board and to help me refine ideas before I introduce them at the agency.

Dave Imre
Partner and CEO / Imre LLC

Heyman Associates

Rarely do I hear of a growing, cutting edge, communications consultancy that doesn’t owe some of its “market mystique” to Darryl Salerno and the team at Second Quadrant. They understand the importance of culture and ask the tough questions of the principals. Darryl combines a relaxed, disarming manner with a very bottom-line approach to business.  With Second Quadrant Solutions we continue to get straight, unvarnished counsel; we get what we need rather than what feels good.  That’s what differentiates them from the competition.

Bill Heyman
President and CEO / Heyman Associates

Argyle Public Relations

While many aspire to be “trusted advisors” to CEOs and managers, Darryl earns this trust from his experience, business acumen and a keen sense of people. He makes managers smarter and business better. And he’s one of the most genuine people you’ll ever meet.

Dan Tisch
President and CEO / Argyle Public Relations

Peppercomm

Darryl Salerno continues to provide real bona fide value to my organization in a variety of essential areas.  Most importantly though, I’m still surprised at how he always seems to ask the right question or provide a unique solution to a problem that our management team typically has gone round and round and round on for too long.

Ed Moed
Managing Partner / Peppercom

Padilla Speer Beardsley

We get the benefit of a broad perspective when we work with Darryl.  He knows the public relations consulting business from ground-floor administration to senior leadership, in firms large and small.  He’s principled and honest, and he holds himself as accountable to us as we do to our clients.So certain were we of his ability to deliver value that we volunteered to beta test one of his professional development modules.  He really connected with our team — a critical step in the adoption of new ideas.

Lynn Casey
Chief Executive Officer / Padilla Speer Beardsley

Prosek Partners

Darryl Salerno’s professional development sessions deliver the perfect mix of learning and fun. Having been a CFO and COO of large and mid-sized agencies he brings unmatched experience, advice and case studies to each engagement.  And his experience as a standup comic makes his delivery both effective and entertaining.

Jen Prosek
CEO / Prosek Partners

MBooth and Associates

Darryl Salerno has been instrumental in helping M Booth evaluate its client service and staff utilization.  He has provided the tools and guidance necessary to help measure capacity and profitability while keeping management focused on providing the best service for Booth’s clients.  Darryl has been a truly invaluable partner throughout the years.

Joe Hamrahi
COO and CFO / M Booth and Associates

I.D.E.A.

Darryl teaches people stuff they don’t think they want to learn in a way that both entertains and teaches! He is a committed counselor who helps agency owners understand what’s going on with their money (and their resources) and how those two things need to be managed to make a profit. Working with Darryl is always delightful.

Indra Gardiner Bowers
Founder and Chief Influence Officer / I.D.E.A.

Peppercomm

Darryl Salerno has played a critical role at a critical juncture in Peppercomm history.  He’s provided strategic counsel that’s helped us decide how, where and when to proceed in our business development.

Steve Cody
Managing Partner / Peppercomm

CRT/tanaka

Darryl Salerno is that rare breed of consultant who combines both head and heart in coming up with inspired solutions to business problems.  He is totally committed to our goal of creating a healthy business and a healthy workplace community.  Darryl has been a trusted and invaluable guide in helping us navigate through some difficult times in the economy and in the evolution of our company.  I cannot sing his praises highly enough.

Patrice Tanaka
Chief Creative Officer / CRT/tanaka

WordHampton Public Relations

Darryl Salerno? The pro for the pros. Listen to what he says and then do it.

Steve Haweeli
President / WordHampton Public Relations

Barbary Coast Consulting

Wise. Insightful, thoughtful, brilliant, strategic, nuanced and experienced, but most of all, wise. Darryl’s experience and vision allow him to see into your company’s future, and his successful track record and confidence in his words and tone give him the authority to direct you towards a beneficial path. He’s a gently firm leader, a coach and confidant, and a man of impeccable ethics.

Founder / Barbary Coast Consulting
