“Over the years, I have received numerous inquiries from MCC members requesting metric implementation assistance. People are looking for consultants with practical functional area expertise, metric strategy, and implementation knowledge. Building the Ambassador Network has been a long term goal that we are pleased is coming to fruition,” says Linda Sullivan, Co-Founder and President of MCC.
