“Dan is a versatile manager; we worked together for a year, on a very difficult assignment. Dan was flexible throughout our working relationship - often taking on more responsibility when asked, and mitigating risks before they could become issues. He consitently managed a very demanding set of customers with integrity and persistence. Dan is very detail oriented, but his focus is continuously on results and empowering his teams. I would welcome the opportunity to work with Dan again, should the situation present itself. For those of you considering work with Dan, you can count a strong recommendation from me - don't hesitate to contact me about his capability!”
