Steve Carel, TRP Capital

"Athena blew our board away with the caliber of candidates they presented for board expansion, making it extremely difficult to choose. On top of this, their approach to community and learning for female executives is incredible; several of our executives are active participants. I consider our partnership with them a strategic advantage"
