"The Millican team worked with Ernie at a time where energy, inspiration and big thinking was needed to guide us to the next stage of our brand journey. Ernie delivered all that, and more.

Ernie has remained part of our brand journey ever since, testament to his engagement and skill-set."

"Coming up with ideas isn’t the hard part. For me the challenge is making the space to sift through them all, put the good ones in order and make a plan.

Dr. Christian Kurtzke

CEO Together Group and former CEO of Porsche Design Group

"I had the pleasure of working with Ernest on a marketing strategy. For many, that is just looking at budgets and ad spend. But with him, we climbed all the way up, to see the big picture and equally drilled down really deep - in search of excellence. And that’s what makes the difference!

I really enjoyed our challenging and insightful collaboration."
