“I have worked with The Ziem Group Inc. for the past three years at Microsoft and have found them to be an excellent vendor when it comes to execution and organization on his projects. Dealing with Mike is always easy and straight forward as we start our project engagements by defining a Statement of Work that is agreeable to both parties. Mike is a professional and understands that the Statement of Work is his ‘contract’ to his client and he works diligently to deliver on the commitments held in it. Mike also has a strong reservoir of energy – he gets things done and can prioritize when needed. These attributes are why I continue to go back and utilize his services.”

“The Ziem Group is multi-talented in sales and marketing company, especially for early stage companies. A couple of standout points when The Ziem Group worked for Aptimize and later Riverbed (post acquisition) were a tireless effort in chasing sales to close, and amazing commitment and attention to detail when running events and exhibiting at trade shows. This enabled Aptimize to have a much greater presence than we would have been able to achieve without them."
Ed Robinson, President and Founder, Aptimize
“I’ve known Mike Iem for over 5 years since I was responsible for Windows Small Business Server at Microsoft. At that time Mike did a fantastic job organizing our User Group Tours – fantastic planning and execution.

During our first year he’s been an invaluable resource because of his deep knowledge of the Microsoft partners and channel as well as his overall business savvy.”
