Ed branded my 12 operating divisions under one brand name, CHOICE. Ed also oversaw the development of our sales literature, web strategy and online lead generation. In addition, he created a PR campaign, which generated national media coverage and positive exposure. Sales grew during this period. The new corporate image, national media coverage and positive growth helped Choice get acquired by a NASDAQ-listed company. Ed currently oversees marketing for my new company, Gold Medal Environmental.

From 2008-2009, I had the pleasure of working with Ed Nieves while I was the President and Chief Executive Officer and a member of the Board of Directors of Mace Security International, a publicly-traded company. Ed was always punctual, met deliverable, and handled a broad range of marketing functions with skill and within budget. In addition, he protected me and the company handling Investor Relations for a NASDAQ company, no easy task. I recommend Ed without reservations.

I have worked with Ed since 1999. He played a key role in helping grow Mace Security International, a NASDAQ-listed company, after I became CEO and President. We started out with a consumer products division in Vermont, and within a few years, we acquired 20 companies giving us three separate operating divisions in Arizona, Delaware, Florida, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Texas and Vermont. Ed oversaw the marketing for all of the divisions and annual sales grew from $2.5 million to $75 million. Ed was instrumental in growing our world famous brand: the Mace Brand Pepper Spray. He also oversaw the corporation’s investor relations and we raised $25 million. I have witnessed Ed’s executive talent on many occasions. Ed has great ideas and is able to make those ideas a reality. Separately from Mace, Ed has worked as a consultant for two of my companies in the areas of marketing, business development, web strategy and investor relations. It is my pleasure to recommend Ed Nieves.

Ed and I worked together on several private label projects. He is a hard-working individual who knows how to get the job done quickly and effectively. He works well as a part of a team and can function as a leader. He has always exhibited superior communication skills and we got along well during the time of production. We highly respected his knowledge and skills in sales.
