These are our trusted affiliates, advisors, and collaborators. We have been privileged to establish long-term relationships with them, and are delighted to extend our client resources through these partnerships.
The one word I would use to define Sandy is “Contributor.” She is a resource to all that know her…whether as a consultant, teacher, board member, colleague, friend or mentor.
For almost a decade, the City of Deming has contracted with Draker Cody on many community planning and development efforts. Rick is reliable in delivering products on time and within budget, and when Rick gives his word, he keeps it.
Rick Draker has the professional credentials, depth of experience, integrity, and personal style needed to create solutions and handle problems. He also has the management skill to achieve an outstanding result.
Draker Cody did an outstanding job in working with the community in the preparation of a comprehensive plan that clearly identified the goals, objectives and the strategies which gave the Village the practical foundation that can be used towards implementation.
Sandy brings a complete skill set to our work. She has a keen awareness of what the underlying problem are and doesn’t hesitate to partner in solving them.
I just wanted to let you know something…I have worked other places where the HR department was not so friendly. I feel like I can come talk to Roberta anytime about anything, and that makes me feel good.
My company has used Rick Draker to manage critical aspects of many of our projects for over ten years. Without exception, we are pleased with his advice, his management skills and his ability to find and pursue solutions to problems.
“Draker Cody worked with us to pinpoint key issues and the immeasurable assets of our community. They were able to diffuse potential conflict with professionalism, expertise in their field, and by truly listening to the needs of each community member.”
We have collaborated with Draker Cody on numerous comprehensive planning, asset management, and master plan update projects throughout New Mexico. With their input, communities can plan and develop growth, qualify for state or federal funding assistance, and are facilitated to achieve their goals.
Sandy and Theressa serve as HR consultants to our organization, and they have truly become a trusted part of our staff here at BBBS-CNM. This is a testament to their commitment to excellence in everything they do.
The Draker Cody team was able to pull together and analyze large quantities of diverse information, develop good working relationships with stakeholders, identify major gaps in the systems, conduct SWOT analyses, and present information in a concise, readable fashion.
I love working with Theressa. She is thoughtful, professional, and an exceptional writer, which is great. She responded very well to my input and requests. I trust Theressa and am very comfortable planning our moves together.
I could comment on great lengths about quality of Sandy’s work, but what impresses me most is her integrity. She does what she says she’ll do.
We are not large enough to have a full time HR staff. Thus for the past 10 years, Draker Cody has helped us with any complicated or risky employee issues. Having Sandy & Theressa on our team makes me feel safer, and like I am doing due diligence for my agency.
I have worked with Rick for the last ten years, and have found Rick’s Project Management skills to be his greatest work asset. Thorough communication with clients and peers has lead to the positive reputation Rick enjoys today.
Sandy is a dynamic leader who makes a difference in our community. She motivates peers, employees, and volunteers effectively. She is open and flexible. She leads by example. She is a focused, task-oriented manager. Sandy Cody is, indeed, a woman of influence.
Our partnership with Draker Cody has been a win-win situation. They are a dedicated team of energetic professionals who have demonstrated time and again their understanding of our organization. They are reliable, qualified, professional, and hard-working.
Draker Cody ably assisted us with our startup; they wrote our application for nonprofit status, and they were the major consultant/writer on our business plan. They also provided excellent training on board responsibilities to our Board of Directors.
We LOOOOOOVE Tess! She has become “one of us” and her services are invaluable! Every department relies on her and looks forward to the days she is here.
