"Tom always brings tremendous insight to any project he's involved in. His unique perspectives on consumer culture derive from his ability to imaginatively relate anthropological ideas to problems of marketing and advertising. His business presentations have added depth and resonance because of his use of interesting and unique anthropological ideas."
Abigail Posner: Head of Strategic Planning and Agency Development 

"Tom truly does see what everyone else sees, but thinks what no one else thinks. He integrates consumer behavior and attitudes, going well beyond just parroting back to us what we all saw and heard. In so doing he always seems to provide us with a new view into the world and the people within it, and does so using evocative language and metaphors that stimulate and inspire our thinking."
Barry Schwartzblatt, Director of Consumer & Market Insights, Beverages And Vitality - Americas 

"Tom's thoroughly challenging insights have proven to be a real competitive advantage in almost every situation he has been involved in. Every time I've worked with him he has provided stunning insight. I'm a huge fan. I cannot recommend him highly enough!"
David Hackworthy, Strategic Partner 
Red Brick Road, London 

"Tom is a brilliant anthropologist. He delivers provocative, actionable insight. No matter what the category or brand, Tom always brings a fresh and thorough perspective. As a planner I find his input invaluable"
Maria Tender, Director Brand Planning 

"Tom is one of those rare individuals who is naturally able to apply a deep theoretical understanding and empathy for his subject matter, yet translate it into a highly engaging and practical discussion - beyond simple analysis. In the six years I have known and personally worked with Tom it never ceases to amaze me how interesting he can make any topic, and how much I continue to learn from him. He is a true professional, a first class individual, and a valued colleague with whom I always look forward to collaborating."
Meir Calderon: Chief Strategic Officer 
Brand Value Advisors, New York, NY

"The work overall has given us insights and ways to look at the markets that have been invaluable. Maschio Consulting goes far deeper than anyone else and then puts their learnings in the context of the real world. They help us be real in innovation at the same time as stepping out of the box, i.e. - they give us a view of the present as well as the past and deeper meanings to construct a better business future for our clients"
