  • I have worked with Gary Dembs and his team for over 18 years.

    In 2014, the Detroit Medical Center worked with the staff and board at the Ronald McDonald House of Detroit, in the rebuilding of the new House.  We hired NPPN to manage our capital expansion campaign.  All indications point that the $3 million will be raised with Gary’s expertise, leadership, and thoughtful, strategic planning.

    Most recently, NPPN did the executive search for our marketing director.  We secured an extremely capable, talented marketing director, with the help of Gary and his team.

    Gary is extremely well connected in the non-profit community and has brought talent, new funds, excellent marketing strategies and financial guidance to our charity.  We highly recommend NPPN for executive search, strategic planning and capital campaign planning.

    Jennifer Litomisky Executive Director, Ronald McDonald House - Detroit
