Michelle was nominated for Consulting Magazine's Top 25 Consultants: 
"When our client was moving through a significant merger integration, Michelle was specifically requested to take on the daunting challenge of integrating two separate and distinct operations, each with thousands of employees serving millions of customers. Michelle created success by leading people to step into new alliances, new processes and new technology across a multi-year integration effort. Contrary to the abysmal results generally associated with large-scale post-acquisition efforts, Michelle's guidance through this gauntlet of massive change produced stronger, more capable leaders and contributors."
