"AN INVALUABLE PLAYER ON OUR TEAM"

Ed Bailey is an instant impact player/coach - a brilliant, passionate, genius and hilarious team player who shows consistent commitment to the work of advancing people around him to improbable heights. I first met Ed as a consultant whom my brother - the CEO of our company - hired to restructure our organization and transform our small “family business” into a streamlined multi-million dollar operation. Ed re-negotiated ownership, navigated past wounds and politics with amazing grace, and created a deal that has re-energized the company and enhanced our working relationship.

During this process, I told Ed about my work at StreetCode Academy, a program working to bring diversity into tech companies by offering free tech training to the East Palo Alto community. He almost immediately began supporting the work by mentoring individual students, and quickly evolved into our lead business advisor. As a result of his guidance, we launched an expanded 18-month strategic plan, and reimagined a new 5-year vision. With his continued help, this plan will launch us as the leading cultural innovation hub for communities of color. Ed is a unicorn in our business of technology, entrepreneurship, and cultural impact. His background growing up in Westside Chicago combined with his best-in-class pedigree and corporate experience makes him a one-of-a-kind. He has been an invaluable player on our team, and as much as we don’t want to share his expertise, we know he’d be an impact player for an other organization/team.

"I CONSIDER THE ARCHER TEAM FAMILY."

At this point, I consider the Archer team family. Above all of their important contributions to the growth of my business and strategy, they are accountable and available whenever I have to make a critical decision - no matter the time or day. What makes them an invaluable partner to my business is their ability to handle all forms of business challenges - from strategy to operations, from sourcing talent to negotiating deals and prices. Archer quickly learned my business model, constructed a business and financial plan for the next year and drove our execution against the milestones needed to help me get there. I would trust them to run my company if needed. Every minute of time I spend with them is time well spent. They have shared lessons t with me from relevant business practices in their experiences at Google, LinkedIn, Cisco and McKinsey & Co. and deftly applied them to my business in simple, clear and thoughtful ways. They have also developed and coached me into a better leader and business owner while helping me develop my vision and voice. I am sure this is just the beginning of a long, healthy relationship.
