ClientView Augments Federal Proposal Development Services


ClientView Consulting LLC (CV) is pleased to announce the addition of Luanne Smulsky as Partner. Luanne will be responsible for implementing industry best practices in helping CV clients prepare proposals that win.

Luanne has been a proposal writer at CV for more than four years; bringing her on as Partner cements CV’s commitment to the proposal phase of business development – a critical step in winning work with the federal government. Her experience spans 20 years in the full proposal lifecycle: from analyzing RFPs and developing annotated outlines, acting as Volume Lead, and coordinating or participating in color team reviews to managing proposal processes, operations, and production. She is a skilled writer and editor, adept at developing well organized, compliant, persuasive writing that succinctly details competitive advantages and in working with Subject Matter Experts to distill technically complex material into scoreable text that meets/exceeds evaluation factors. Markets with which Luanne is familiar include manufacturing, information technology, engineering/construction, research, training/continuous improvement, medical acquisition, emergency response services, and management consulting.

Having helped large and small businesses win more than $2.5B in work with various DoD agencies (Army, Marine Corps) and federal agencies like NASA, Luanne knows what the government is looking for, and, perhaps more importantly, precisely what the government does not want. These insights helped her triple revenue in three years at her consulting firm, ib4e Writing Solutions LLC, a company dedicated to helping its clients manage effective proposal processes, write winning proposals, and develop targeted marketing. Luanne is a member of the Association of Proposal Management Professionals (APMP) Greater Mid-West Chapter, former President and Communications Director of APMP’s Northeast Chapter, and member of the Society for Marketing Professional Services (SMPS). She is Shipley trained and holds a M.A. in Sociology from the University of Massachusetts and a B.A. in Psychology from the College of the Holy Cross.

“I am excited about becoming an integral part of CV’s team in providing clients with the right tools to achieve strategic objectives and growth, and look forward to helping our clients understand how to approach and improve their proposal processes to enjoy more federal contract wins,” Luanne Smulsky.

CV Partner Ed Harrington, Brigadier General US Army (Retired), “Luanne is a tremendous addition to ClientView. She brings not only a full range of proven qualifications, but the demonstrated success in helping clients win and increase revenue.”
