“Selvyn worked across the country from me and in a different time zone. Whenever I had a problem or question that was beyond those in my location, I found that I could ask Selvyn and get the right answer. When the problem required active help, he handled it with dispatch. I heartily recommend Selvyn for any position or assignment that he chooses to engage. He brings an excellent attitude, good thinking and provides reliable skills to whatever the issue may be.” March 25, 2010
