“…Thanks to all of those who supported this effort and a special thanks to Julie for keeping us focused and the long hours she put in getting the proposal finalized.”
“I have had the pleasure of working with Julie Chen on a number of initiatives. She is extremely dedicated and passionate in every endeavor. She is reliable and has the innate skills of managing others to work collaboratively to move actions along in a coordinated and expedient manner. She is the epitome of leading by example. A harder worker you will not find.”
“Great job on the Spartan win! You were very key to the win, and I/we really appreciate all of your extra efforts.”
"Julie is outstanding. She's hard working, very professional and has helped me immensely in pursuing transportation related work in Hawaii. She has helped me in getting acclimated into Earth Tech as well. She really came through on the large Honolulu Light Rail proposal with stellar marks from me. She definitely merits recognition as Employee of the Quarter."
“I want to tell you how much I appreciate your efforts on behalf of Earth Tech and the Honolulu office. Your significant contribution means a lot to me and you have my sincere thanks.”
"I have led innumerable proposal efforts over my 30-year career and I have to say that Julie is among the most professional and hard-working proposal specialists I have had the pleasure of working with. Preparing large proposals is one of the most difficult and stressful jobs in our business -- and Julie does it cheerfully and with enthusiasm. If I could just get her to leave Paradise, there is a promotion for her here in Colorado!"
“As always, your extra efforts and dedication make our proposal efforts run smoothly and look relatively easy when they are most certainly not…especially herding all the cats on the NDAs and ensuring 100% compliance with the RFP requirements.”
"First and foremost, thank you for an amazing product. We have never submitted a SF330 of this caliber!”
“Julie is a person that can be trusted, knowledgeable on what’s needed in marketing/proposal packages, flexible on work schedule, and her attention to detail is phenomenal. She’s been a pleasure to work with, and would recommend her to others that needed marketing and proposal assistance.”
"Julie is a true professional and one who continually gives a hundred plus percent to all endeavors. She is efficient, organized, and knows what it takes to get a sound, solid, and winning proposal structured, prepared and out the door on or before Client-specified timeframes."
“Julie has a thorough understanding of the SOQ process for Hawaii clients. She is detail-oriented, organized, and takes the initiative to get things done. You can count on Julie to be an effective partner in putting together a winning proposal!”
“Julie's managerial, collaborative and communicative talent led our team through a complex, large proposal effort. In an extraordinary effort, she faced and overcame many challenges. Julie’s talent for networking, befriending, bonding, organizing, her decisiveness and ability to persuade, to team-build, her use of technology and her ability to think on her feet – are all of what she offers in marketing projects.”
“…I especially want to let you all know that you have a very valuable and dedicated ‘Team Member’ in Julie Chen. Without her actively involved and working with me on these past proposals we have worked on through the JV, I don’t think we could have met the timelines or even get to where we won the first proposal. Ms. Chen is a ‘GREAT’ addition to the team and I for one appreciate her due diligence, attention to detail, and work ethic.”
“Just wanted to pass on my thanks to you for Julie’s work on the submarine cable proposal. It was a challenging task with so many moving parts coming together so late in the process from so many different entities inside and outside of AECOM...”
"Julie Chen has extensive experience in writing Federal construction proposals that are well-written and concise. I never once heard an excuse and was always brought with good suggestions when faced with issues. I highly recommend working with Julie Chen of Marketability."
