“Ron is a very hard worker with strong hardware and operating system skills. He is tenacious when addressed with a problem and will pursue a resolution regardless of how much effort it requires. Even at the busiest of times, Ron is willing to take on additional work or to learn new skills. Keeping up to date on technology and adding to his knowledgebase are of tremendous importance to Ron and add to his ability to contribute to the team effort. In addition to his positive attitude to work, Ron's easygoing nature make him a good teammate. People like working with Ron because he is easy to get along with, shares both the responsibility and the credit for tough jobs, and volunteers for difficult tasks. Ron is a valuable asset on a desktop administration team.” July 12, 2010

Connie Kelly , Graphic Designer, Brown Rudnick (colleague)worked with you

“First and foremost, Ron knows his stuff! He came to my aid so many times when I was in need and ALWAYS with a smile on his face. You couldn't find anyone more knowledgeable in his field or nicer to work with. He was always recommending ways that you could improve the efficiency and speed of your computer and giving you a list of software that you could get to do the job. My computer is much happier today due to Ron because it is less cluttered with debris that is not caught in your spam filter. Ron would be a valuable member to anyone's team and, as stated above, they would be lucky to have him.” February 17, 2010

Maureen Redhead , Business Systems Support Analyst, IT (colleague)worked directly with you

“Ron worked in the Network department when I was in User Support. Ron taught me everything I needed to know to be the best I could in my job. He was always willing to help whenever needed. He was so knowledgeable of his job that I knew there was nothing I could ask that he couldn't assist with. I went into that job with practically no IT knowledge but Ron was there to teach me everything I needed to know so that our entire department benefited. After he would teach me a fix to something, I in turn would show my coworkers how to do it. I later put much of that information into a training guide for new hires. Ron was always trying to better his knowledge of his job and increase efficiency for our firm. Any office needing a network technician would strike gold by hiring Ron. I cannot over emphasize just how beneficial he would be to any IT department. He is by-far one of the nicest and most capable people I've ever worked with.” March 17, 2009

Dawn Brooks , Network Technician, Brown Rudnick (colleague)worked directly with you

He is always willing to help with anything he knows how to do and is willing to learn if he doesn't know. Ron was always a pleasure to work with.” December 29, 2009

David Golden , Partner, Brown Rudnick (colleague)managed you indirectly

“Ron is truly great at what he does. He solved many many problems for me during our time together at the same firm. Whenever I had a computer-related issue that no one else could puzzle out, Ron was always there to fix it. Ron works efficiently and without complaint. He would be an essential piece of any IT team, and the company he works for will be very lucky to have him.” February 11, 2010
