“I requested to work with the EDCMC to provide plot maps and local demographics for a client presentation. The end result of our working together was fantastic. Diana Schultz of the EDCMC was a pleasure to work with. She provided her expertise on the Manitowoc area in a very timely fashion, which in this business is sometimes an unrealistic turnaround. The EDCMC was able to provide that for me.”
Mike Maedtke, Commercial Horizons
