"Koert is thoughtful, creative and visionary. He's able to home in on the deeper layer of human truths where often the solution lies. He was critical in leading our insights efforts for a complicated B2B engagement. He immediately got up to speed on category complexities, managed our customer recruitment and interview process, and developed great understanding of the customers and their journey. I look forward to partnering with Koert on many projects to come."
