“I contacted ADVOCATE the day before Thanksgiving 2013 and they organized a meeting for the day after Thanksgiving. What more can I say? A company willing to meet me over the holiday weekend and problem-solve my corporate needs was all I needed. It simply demonstrated commitment and partnership. These two qualities continue to remain consistent today.

"Although I have developed many great relationships over the past 20 years, ADVOCATE has repeatedly demonstrated the following qualities I find to be unique: partnership, integrity, available, and open-minded. Seven years ago this relationship began. The integrity and service continues to be outstanding. We appreciate all that ADVOCATE offers to help our organization succeed and look forward to many more productive years.”
