“If you need to say it, write it, present it or promote it, Dave Kowal needs to be involved. Dave has the talent to quickly size up any situation, design a strategy, create the message and flawlessly execute a plan. He can distill the most arcane techno-babble into everyday language. And, his ability to get articles featured in major publications is incredible. Over a four-year period, Dave was instrumental in catapulting an unknown product onto the world stage. I would highly recommend Dave to any organization that needs to hone a message, promote itself, or sharpen its image.”

“David Kowal is a knowledgeable and pro-active partner who helped bring SecondMarket, then Restricted Stock Partners, into the public eye on a consistent basis. When we first began working with David, our company was new to the street. Within no time, Restricted Stock Partners was being featured in some of the largest publications such as the Wall Street Journal, NY Times, and Dow Jones. With David’s persistence and connections, our PR efforts were well rewarded and helped lead to the growth of SecondMarket and its reputation as the marketplace for illiquid assets.”

“Dave has proven to be a valuable asset to our CPA firm as a technical writer. We count on Dave to take a technical topic, relate it to a publication's readers, and draft a very readable article for our CPAs to review, finalize and approve. His writing style is a refreshing blend of sophisticated industry knowledge tempered with a very conversational tone.
