Marcie Levine | Chief Executive Officer
B.A. in HR from the University of Kansas and M.B.A. from the University of Colorado.
Prior to starting SurveyConnect Marcie had more than twelve-years of experience in human resources, both as a consultant and in several corporate positions. As a human resources consultant, she worked on a variety of client assignments, including the design and implementation of surveys. It was the cumbersome nature of survey administration and analysis that caused her to search for a technological solution, and led to the subsequent founding of SurveyConnect.
SurveyConnect provides 360 degree feedback assessment technology and services to the Human Resource, Training, and Organizational Development markets. With her background in HR, Marcie has a firm grasp of organizational-level issues. She sees stories in numbers and can help people and organizations understand the themes and messages inherent in their 360 feedback reports. She can help determine what value people bring to their jobs and organizations, and how they can be more effective in their roles. This diagnosis is where she excels.
Marcie also leads the SurveyConnect team in complicated projects where SurveyConnect is builds customized 360 feedback data collection and analysis tools. Designing and implementing these 360 projects can be complex, and customer needs change often during the project process. Her focus is to exceed customer expectations while keeping projects on time and within budget.
She has published articles about the 360 feedback and survey process in trade magazines including the International Society for Performance Improvement, Selling Power, T+D Magazine, and Quirk’s Marketing Research Review.

SurveyConnect dogs are by far-and-away the world’s best. They provide unmatched encouragement, entertainment, and competitive tug-of-war matches.
Max | Chief Executive Dog
Max, while small, is the pack leader. He administers our in-house 360 reviews and provides report debriefs when necessary. He is the first to greet everyone and ensures that everyone knows he's present. We don’t know how we’d stay grounded without him. He however, elects to be off the ground, higher than all the other dogs - the dogs think it’s his way of showing off his executive position.
Calvin | Chief Creative Dog
Calvin is our expert on creativity (his ideas are Golden). He sits in on meetings to let the team bounce ideas off him. Without his input, we’re pretty sure we’d lose our creative directive. He seems to be more creative when you give him treats. He advised us to update our website after a belly-rub. He came up with our fun 360 feedback process demo after our CEO gave him a treat - so the story goes…
Brodie | Moral Support Dog
Brodie is the tug-of-war champion and leads our moral support efforts. He’s made himself available to clients, whether they need a pick-me-up or to unload their excitement on after seeing their 360 feedback report. He’ll box if you need to let off steam or curl up in your lap if you need to talk. He’s so popular, he’s booked for the next 7 years - we’re unsure if he means that in standard or dog years...
Keilani | Role Model & IT Support Dog
Keilani leads our IT procurement efforts. When testing new technologies, she approves only those that exceed industry standards. We think she’s a little too cautious though; she thinks the oscillating fan in her office is out to get her. Setting the bar for being exceptionally good natured, she hopes everyone follows her lead.
