He worked well with those individuals on the project team and provided a great balance between tactical and strategic execution filling the gaps most appropriate. John's adaptable nature, subject matter expertise, and quick learning curve made him a great addition to our team." December 18, 2008
Top qualities: Great Results, Personable, Creative
"John has a rare combination of technical, business and communication skills. He is equally at ease discussing J2EE details, Business Cases or giving project guidance to the project leads. John has worked at small to medium sized companies and with me at a Fortune 500 company. In other words John scales vertically and horizontally! If not for us being acquired John would be continuing to do great things at National City on my team. Bill Kickel." December 15, 2008
"I have worked with John, both on professional projects at Westfield and personal development projects. I have yet to meet someone who is more knowledgeable on development. Additionally, John's ability to take the most esoteric ideas and simplify them into a language that the typical business client can understand is surpassed by no one. He is flexible and business agile, which is needed and appreciated when business needs change over night. But it is not only John's technical skills that should be noted, but also John's "soft skills" are remarkable and unexpected from a technical person. John can meet with any level of employee from your basic help desk personnel to the CEO of a company, and everyone is at ease. His calm demeanor and customer service oriented attitude is outstanding. John would be an asset to any company, and he is someone who I hope will continue to mentor my technical savvy."
"John is highly skilled in leveraging complex technologies and data to deliver user friendly requirements-driven business solutions. At Westfield Group he developed BI dashboards based on industry Web/portlet standards, leveraging multiple and data technologies to provide critical status/trend information to Personal Lines leadership. John's technical knowledge and business acumen led to his role as a key contributor and stakeholder on the enterprise portal implementation. I relied equally on John's business acumen during roll-out of enterprise Role-Based Access Control. I greatly respect John's balance of technical and soft skills and his commitment to maximizing value gained from existing IT investments."
