    As President of SMPS, I think this is a wonderful and deserved honor for Kim. I have sought out and received valuable insight from Kim and echo the sentiments of this news. Her influence upon SMPS has been far reaching not only through her participation, but also her encouragement of co-workers and colleagues. Congratulations Kim!

    That is a hell of an accomplishment, Kim, and well deserved. It’s a powerful validation of what we do as professionals to see marketing/BD sitting at the table with firm management. RDK and SMPS are both better off for your leadership and energy. Congratulations!
