Client Testimonials

“It was really amazing to see the students interested and engaged in developing a plan for their future. Kevin worked wonderfully with our students and they were engaged and responded well to the activities involved. It was nice to listen to their ability to develop a comprehensive picture of what they value, what skills they already possess, and what work environment might best fit their descriptions.“

Novak Academy – Champaign Unit 4 School District

In a less-than-ideal environment, he was able to create collaboration sessions that produced real results and provide us with tools to make implementation successful. We came away with a comprehensive Strategic Plan and Operating Plan that will serve as the backbone of our chapter for the next 3 years. More importantly, we have forge a relationship with Kevin and his company which will be an incredible resource for years to come.

~Sara Sankowich, President New England Chapter – ISA

~Kevin Breen, Board Member New England Chapter – ISA

“Working with Kevin and Nextier Advisors has taken our strategic planning to a new level. In the past, we fell into the write it and file it scenario, but with Kevin’s facilitation, we worked right through to an operational plan that is simple to use to grow our organization and carry out our mission. We thought so highly of Kevin, we hired him to help our Foundation as well. It’s a Win-Win for us!”

~Rose Epperson, CAE 

Executive Director WCISA and The Britton Fund

The New England Chapter ISA underwent 2021-2023 Strategic Planning in an effort to bring a current plan up-to-date, and to have a strong strategic plan in place for future years.  We received multiple facilitator quotes, all had merit, but Nextier Advisors and Kevin Martlage rose to the top. Due to Covid-19, Kevin facilitated our planning process remotely with an immense amount of professionalism, organization, and leadership.”

~Heather Leff

Executive Director, New England Chapter – ISA

“I had thought of myself as a lucky person who had grown into a career that I loved. As the unexpected happened, I found myself having to make a midlife career change and feeling completely lost and defeated. I did not know what specific direction to take but knew that I wanted to spend the rest of my career doing something that I enjoyed while also maintaining a specific salary level. His kind and patient nature really helped me build self confidence and ease anxiety. I have since found a career containing the elements that I love. I wish I would of had his expertise much earlier in life. Many headaches could have been avoided.

“Kevin’s professionalism and commitment to an organization’s purpose is singular. I served as a volunteer in ISA’s Credentialing Council for which Kevin served as a leader for four years. Throughout the years, I have been particularly impressed by Kevin’s ability to forge prosperous partnerships for ISA, both nationally and internationally. As a member of the Council, I have witnessed Kevin’s ability to improve process and implement change while considering and being sensitive to both staff and volunteers’ wishes as well as the organization’s needs. No matter how tense a situation may be, Kevin exhibits strong leadership and professionalism.”
