Clients: Testimonials

"I've been fortunate to work with some great leaders across the country since founding Tailgate Guys in 2009. Beth is at the top of that list. She regularly went above and beyond the call of duty and always looked out for not only Michigan Athletics' best interest, but our partnership's best interest as well. I look forward to finding more ways to work together with Beth in the future."
