“I am very pleased to recommend Andy Klemm. I hired Andy's company to do a salary study, and working with him was far above expectations. Even though the organization had many job descriptions that were different from typical positions in a company, Andy quickly grasped the positions' functions and roles, and how the jobs related to each other within the organization. He also successfully compared the positions to those in the job market to determine their external value. He explained his process well, answered our questions, and gave us tips to make the project run smoothly. Andy provided excellent communication, completed the study on schedule, and charged a very reasonable fee. I was extremely pleased with both the process and results. I am fortunate to have been able to work with Andy on the salary study, and he would definitely be my choice in the future.”

“I have never met anyone like Andy, he is very well versed in the very complex world of executive compensation, reward systems, equity plans and IT compensation. There's no one as competent and capable to get the right plan based on the correct data. As a client I felt that Andy was one of the best resouces available in a very critical area of human capital management.” November 3, 2010

“As Vice President and General Manager at Central States Diversified I had the opportunity to work with Andy as he facilitated a strategic planning exercise for the company. Andy's intuitive grasp of strategy and skillful facilitation during the three-day planning exercise was critical to the highly successful outcome in the development of CSD's first strategic road map. I would highly recommend Andy to any company looking for a good strategic consultant. His work is truly first-class!” August 12, 2008
