I have worked with Alan Wallace as a client and a colleague in various capacities since 1995 and have found him to be a highly regarded communications professional which I hold in the highest regard. Alan is one of the best (if not the best) marketing and public relations executives in any technology company. - John Jeffrey
I had the extreme pleasure of working with Alan Wallace on at least two occasions. First, Alan Wallace served as a guest expert and pioneer in the field of Music & Technology for the Emmy winning TechTV music series "AudioFile", a passion project for Microsoft founder, Paul Allen, where Alan highlighted innovations as they pertained to the music industry. In fact, I credit Alan's work with Live365.com with helping to move the needle as the music industry moved into the digital age. I had a second occasion to work with Alan indirectly when he hired me to produce a series of interviews with iCANN President and CEO, Paul Twomey. Alan conceived the idea for the interviews in order to highlight some of the groundbreaking initiatives his client was introducing. I would welcome the opportunity to work with Alan again and recognize him as a change-maker. - Kris Kosach
Alan Wallace is sharp, persuasive, committed, focused and a really nice person. We worked together on strategic and tactical activities of interest to his company and mine and sometimes to both. In all instances Alan asked the right questions and delivered great advice. I would hire him if the right opportunity arose. - Jon Potter
