References & Past Successes

What A Few Past Clients And References Say:

"In building First Call Corporation, Bob Norton, was my secret weapon in getting a really audacious job done not only on time and under budget, but done so well that it revolutionized how equity sales was done on Wall Street. His abilities to understand complex requirements, to synthesize elegant solutions, and then to manage a team to get it done, are still the best I've ever seen."
- Jim Rutt, Ex-CEO Network Solutions and Thomson Technology Services
“Mr. Norton is a true visionary who can also execute. Few people have the ability to do both.“
- General Partner, Investment Banking Firm
“I met Mr. Norton when he was a 29 years old CEO founding his first company and I was 59. I always said Bob was '29 going on 60' because his wisdom, experience and ability always far exceeded his years”.
- Investor and Former CEO of Gibbs Oil company “The best CEOs require 8 weeks to get up to speed on a new company and market. Bob did it in less than six weeks so our portfolio company could be repositioned quickly and effectively.”
- Senior Partner, Venture Capital Firm "Bob could always accomplish twice the work in half the time compared to anyone else I ever hired. He was the best hiring decision I ever made.  His speed and laser focus on the most important issues is exceptional."
- Jack H., Former Manager at ISI Systems
"In just 2 hours of consultation, Bob Norton helped me to re-focus my thoughts, especially with regard to financing strategy.  In addition, there were several nuggets of wisdom and insight about bootstrapping, competitive intelligence, and market research. I highly recommend him."
- Nijan Datar, Founder and CEO, Smart Voice
