"Direct Ventures hit three home runs for Aetna over the past five years. First, they helped instill a disciplined direct marketing competency. They then helped launch Aetna Advantage and Aetna BodyGuard insurance portfolios and extend similar programs to our blue chip partners. DVI provides strategic counsel and at times, even handles all aspects of program implementation. They partner with our strategic insights group on market sizing, analytic modeling and sales forecasting. Barry Sideroff is a good business partner and a good person as well, with a great sense of humor and a lot of patience."  Head of Marketing, Aetna Inc.


"DVI’s knowledge, expertise, strategic planning and project management capabilities are unsurpassed. They have unique skills to analyze complex marketing problems or opportunities, identify root causes and translate them into highly effective, data-driven marketing strategies and then manage execution and refinement to impactful, measurable and terrific results.  Barry Sideroff is an outstanding human being with the highest levels of intellect, integrity, honesty, kindness, dependability and friendship. You could not ask for a better or nicer person to work with. He is one of a kind and I would highly recommend him for any marketing project, campaign or consulting engagement."  Director of Sales Enablement, ibm.com


"Barry Sideroff is without question the most knowledgeable expert I have ever worked with in the direct marketing strategy space.
