Live Wire was truly an extended arm of Raytheon’s marketing team. Live Wire’s flexibility and client service are second to none, and I always felt like I was their number one client – these are “hard to find” skills in today’s communications environment. Live Wire was a trusted partner, and we valued them very much.
