I would highly recommend engaging with AAR Partners if you are considering a change either with your AOR or another key agency partner. Lisa Colantuono was an absolute pleasure to work with throughout the entire process. She has a tremendous work ethic, communicates in a highly effective manner and provides valuable insights into the various agencies based on her prior experience representing other clients throughout the pitch process. Given ClearChoice Dental Implants is a relatively small company in a generally misunderstood category, AAR Partners played an instrumental role in garnering interest in our business among prospective agencies spanning the entire country as we were not constrained on the location for our new AOR. Agencies shared with us that AAR Partners strong reputation elevated their interest in our RFP. Lisa’s expertise, diligence and strong process orientation enabled me and my team to maintain our focus on driving the growth and performance of the business. The AAR process is well structured yet flexible as evidenced by Lisa suggesting that we include an additional step for the finalists during the last few weeks of the process that yielded significantly better final presentations than I suspect would have otherwise occurred. In addition, the AAR compensation model was highly transparent which helped us focus on the process without concern for unexpected costs. If you’re in the market for a new AOR or key agency, the best first step you can take is contacting Lisa at AAR Partners.
