"Michael completely turned around our organizations visibility and position as a knowledge expert in our field, both in our local community and nationally. His hard work, expertise and dedication to his clients makes him the perfect PR consultant for any company. I highly recommend Michael Barrio and the Leverage Point team."– Nyika Allen, Executive Director of New Mexico Technology Council
"Raising the profile of New Mexico credit unions has resulted in outstanding editorial and opinion support for ending the over-regulation of our members. Thanks to a well thought out strategy, Leverage Point has brought consistently positive media attention in favor of credit union advocacy issues."– Paul Stull, President/CEO of Credit Union Association of New Mexico
“Let's be honest. How many of us have that one initiative on the corner of their desk assigned to an employee who is great but is already doing three jobs? That’s where we were a year ago. We knew the importance of political advocacy and governmental affairs but had no dedicated resources to develop our plan and move it forward. Fast forward to a year later after working with Leverage Point. We have a robust plan, resources dedicated to moving initiatives, call to action resources to engage our membership, and specific goals and outcomes. Leverage Point helped us develop a plan that was tailored for our appetite and interest. They have been a great partner and we are looking forward to our next steps.”-Tyrone Muse, President & CEO of Visions Federal Credit Union
"We are so pleased to partner with Leverage Point to provide a range of advocacy and other services that credit unions say they really need. I look forward to combining our strengths and expertise to maximize our advocacy efforts, and I am confident credit unions will benefit."– Mary Dunn, CU Counsel
