“Schwartz has been a driving force for innovation and relevance in a time of change and upheaval in our industry. He does not waste energy on looking back unless it informs the future.

— Duke Geraghty, President, Outer Banks Home Builders Association
“Schwartz led the media training workshop of our Chamber’s leadership program for years. He’s our top choice because he’s savvy, knowledgeable about the past, and up-to-date and involved in current trends. Plus, he’s delightful to work with.”
