“The IPM Associate was excellent to work with, he was very strategic and assisted us in planning for IT.”

Crystal Dyches, City Manager, Page, AZ
Town of Parker

“We were really in a bind here, and IPM was able to have Charlie here in such a short time. I think from our first phone call to his first day; it was less than 30 days – which in this area is a huge accomplishment. It’s hard to get folks motivated to come to a small town in distress.”

“It was a pleasure working with Charlie during his short time here. He was really understanding of the situation we have all been through here in the Town. It’s been a difficult time for all of us. Charlie brought our town a sense of professionalism that has not been seen around here in a very long time. His direct and consistent leadership was very much appreciated during his time here. Charlie was helpful and kind, and I hope that he is enjoying fishing!

“IPM was fantastic to work with, and Gene was very helpful. This whole process was as seamless as it possibly could have been. From engagement to closeout, there were never any issues. It was nice to have Gene visit after Charlie started. It felt like a very hands-on welcome from IPM. We had no issues during our time together, however, if we did, I’m sure IPM would have handled it with professionalism and care. I will highly recommend IPM to anyone looking for seasoned professionals to serve their municipalities.
