VP Sales and Marketing
“Hardy Kalisher truly is a marketing guru. We hired Hardy while I was on the board of Boulder County Force Soccer Club to upgrade our marketing program. He systematically developed the electronic presence of the club from a weak, poorly maintained website to a full, vertically integrated content management system (and became Director of Operations in the meantime). His tireless efforts grew the club significantly. Hardy is a true strategic thinker with great hands-on marketing skills. He gets my highest recommendation!”
Steve Kropf, Pele Sports USA

Would we hire HK again....absolutely!"
