"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!"
“…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.”
“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 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."
“Great job on the Spartan win! You were very key to the win, and I/we really appreciate all of your extra efforts.”
"First and foremost, thank you for an amazing product. We have never submitted a SF330 of this caliber!”
“…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.”
"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 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.”
“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.”
“I want to tell you how much I appreciate your efforts on behalf of the Honolulu office. Your significant contribution means a lot to me and you have my sincere thanks.”
"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 the company 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."
“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.”
“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 the company...”
