Michael Gray

“I fully endorse Erich for any position managing a significant IT infrastructure. His technical acumen is evidenced by his list of accomplishments, credentials and certifications. However, it is his ability to conceive and execute an overall infrastructure, and his appreciation of how a well conceived and well executed IT plan contributes to top line and bottom line success, which distinguish him from many other competent IT professionals. As a senior executive serving advanced technology where a superb IT plan is indispensible, I recommend Erich Liendo as an IT development strategist and leader without reservation.”
