I initially met Addis in 1996 at Mira Costa College as my student in Business Law, I hired Addis as Associate Professor to teach Business Management classes in 2011. As a student and as a professor, Addis proved to be very professional and passionate about Business. Addis’s classes were usually full as she was able to capture her students' interest by bringing real business issues into the classroom. Students were exposed to guest speakers who also became mentors to some of her students. Addis focused her course work on two critical aspects of business, the psychology of working with people and the fundamentals of business. I would highly recommend Addis to any teaching position that she chooses to pursue as she will bring value to the classroom.
When I met with Addis in late February 2001, I offered her a position the same day. Addis is truly one of the best employees I have had the pleasure to meet over the last 30 years. Everyone at our company was very sad to see Addis leave, but hopeful she will have some great opportunities in the future. Addis is the type of person every company is looking to hire. She has integrity, honesty, a great work ethic and is liked by everyone she meets. Hence, I would highly recommend her for any position.
I have found Addis Kassegn to be an extraordinary business person of tremendous versatility, intelligence and discipline. She has great knowledge of marketing platforms, customer relations and executive level experience. We have been extremely happy with our association with Addis and would recommend her to companies interested in improving their overall sales and marketing efforts.
I have known Addis for more than ten years and during that time, she has worked on a number of marketing projects on my behalf. She is a very creative and responsive business professional and has fulfilled and implemented a wide variety of marketing projects successfully. She is conscientious, budget focused and able to meet deadlines. Addis is extremely well organized and is able to consistently produce high quality work within assigned guidelines. I have no hesitation in recommending her for any marketing project and I am confident she will come through with flying colors.
"Addis’ approach is no nonsense. She communicates her experience and tells it like it is. Even with a sweet demeanor, there is no sugar coating or beating around the bush. I’ve learned that in order to achieve my goals, it is not a matter of “what I should do” but “what I must do”. Accessible and on point, she has taken the time to know me as a client, and address my particular business needs. With her guidance, I am building the business of my dreams and see progress daily. "
"Addis is very focused on making the marketing decisions that are right for our company specifically, instead of applying the same strategies she's used on other companies. We feel very taken care of in this personalized plan, and it's clear that she is thinking of our company outside of just our specified meeting times when she sends us ideas and notes and possibilities by email between meetings. Addis is a great communicator, is very patient, and expresses her ideas and goals clearly so we can understand them and work to make them happen. She has been an integral part in our effort to push our company from a primarily word-of-mouth marketing, to one that is able to reach a larger audience of potential clients."
