“I had the opportunity to work with Adriane during my time at FedEx Ground, through our sponsorship of the Pittsburgh Three Rivers Marathon. Even more important than her impressive professionalism, attention to detail and willingness to accommodate a client’s request—no matter how bizarre—she is a real pleasure to work with. She is full of personality and her energy is contagious.”
