Here are a few recommendations from people I’ve worked with over the years. If you’d like to add to this, please put in the comments, and thank you!

“I had the pleasure of working with Ed while he was my customer at [company]. Ed is one of the most impressive individuals I have ever worked with. Ed’s understanding of the big picture, while not losing sight of the objective, his attention to detail, his ability to combine business aims with technical requirements, and his success in marshaling different groups and entities towards a common goal are absolutely exemplary.”

“Ed worked on my team in two capacities, first as a Project Manager and then as a Product Manager. In both positions, he excelled and produced results quicker than expected. His ability to produce results quickly was exceeded by the quality of his work. Ed was the ‘go to’ person on the team and always led others by the example that he set. Ed set the standard for Product Managers at [our company].”

“Ed is a great Project Manager who dove into anything that he undertook with great passion and sense of pride. He made sure that his work was done on time and done right. He took over tasks that everyone else didn’t want to do and made sure that they were done right. He is an excellent asset to a company as he takes pride in his work”

“Ed is technically sound and makes a great relationship manager-a combination of skills rarely seen these days. He does an excellent job of working through highly complex projects and utilizing resources within the organization. He communicates proactively to his customers and seeks out strategic solutions. He is a respected colleague and I would highly recommend him for any position or career that he may now seek to pursue.”

“Ed is both an excellent technical resource in the areas of OSS and BSS application development/deployment and overall project leader; but also has the interpersonal skills that so many others in his role never properly develop. He is an outstanding professional resource and mentor that I would recommend for any project requiring his skill set.”

“Ed has a great attitude and a fantastic work ethic. He is a dedicated team member and works hard to ensure success on every assignment. I enjoyed working with Ed and hope I get the opportunity again in the future.”

“Ed was instrumental to the success of his group. I found Ed to be nothing less than professional in my many dealings with him and his team. Ed was very technical minded and could roll up his sleeves and to get projects done if he had to. He is also a great leader of people that gained the respect and trust of his team, managers and all those he came in contact with at [our organization]. I would highly recommend Ed.”

“Ed came in to my organization as a Project Manager but quickly distinguished himself as much more. In addition to effectively managing our team projects, he provided valuable data integration and SOA design assistance and managed our SOA support team. Ed’s broad technical knowledge, customer focus and team leadership skills made him a valuable part of our team.”

“I had the privilege of having Ed on my team managing SOA integration development projects. Ed’s leadership and organizational skills helped to create a high performance culture that far exceeded our customers’ expectations. Ed leverages his business understanding and client management skills to overcome hurdles and engenders true team collaboration. He leverages his broad technical and business knowledge to ensure that the team is successful. I would gladly recommend Ed for any future endeavor.”

“Ed is a highly competent IS manager and technical resource who can be counted on to deliver quality results. Ed’s speciality at [our organization] was service oriented architecture, an area in which he demonstrated an impressive technical grasp. He consistently delivered on time results and got the most from the team he directed. He would be a valuable addition to any IS organization.”

“Ed is a very talented executive and a better person. I had the disticntive pleasure to be in the same study group with Ed throughout our MBA experience at California State University – Long beach. I worked closely with him as as colleague and invaluable team mate. Ed has very good analytical skills, is an excellent communicator and has an outstanding technical background with a clear understanding of how to maximize its benefits.”

“Ed is a very solution oriented and creative person. He always keeps grounded with the task at hand while at the same time keeping long term strategies on track. He has a keen ability to address business critical needs with out of the box solutions. I recommend him and his skills to anyone who needs someone who is brings their best to every aspect of the job.”

“I have worked closely with Ed on a variety of internal and partner projects in the past year. His warm nature contributes to building the overall business partner relationship. I’ve experienced his skill in quickly identifying and addressing issues and following them through to resolution. He always made himself available to the team, no matter the situation and particularly during difficult and demanding sessions. I recommend him with no reservations.”

“Ed is a top-notch consultant. I was able to originally place him at Ingram Micro based on his excellent technical and management skills, but his breadth of knowledge and professional “whatever it takes” attitude has allowed him to greatly expand his responsibilities and accomplishments beyond the original scope of the project. I highly recommend Ed to any organization that is lucky enough to work with him.”

“Ed is one of those rare breed of Managers who have a satellite view of Product/Stakeholder needs while have the tactics and strategy to deliver technology products without sacrificing quality, timelines, resources and processes. I participated in a few technology initiatives with Ed, where he exhibited utmost professionalism and dedication to ‘get things done’. He is a good mentor and not shy to roll his sleeves when the situation warrants in Architecture, Design & BD activities.”
