Member Spotlight: Michael Aleck-Pandl

Q: About you, where do you work?

As the CEO of Indigo LLC, I have the honor of leading one of the most innovative communications teams in the industry. Our diversified staff and innovative business model allow Indigo LLC to offer our client partners effective and measurable communications plans.

Every day I continue to learn by collaborating with my extensive network of professionals. I believe we must support each other and be active members of our communities to ensure that we are educating and mentoring the business leaders of tomorrow.

My passion for success is grounded in a belief that life is a journey. There comes a time when you pack away the fears, doubts, and you begin the journey of finding what brings your heart joy. The road can be rough and lonely, and at times you may want to stop. But as the path becomes clearer you feel a sense of incredible joy and accomplishment and deep down you know what others have known all along, that you are meant for greater things. Define you! It is a power that we must achieve our dreams. I resolve myself to continue to support others as often as I can.
