"I had the pleasure of working with Ken for around 18 months on a major project to consolidate a number of Cobham Manufacturing Facilities. In my role as Chairman of those projects this gave me the opportunity to both monitor the performance and at times offer assistance to Ken and his team. During my time with Ken I found him to be an extremely professional individual who recognizes the importance of maximizing the returns to the shareholder whilst ensuring that he gains the respect from his team and in doing extracting increased levels of performance with a team under notice of redundancy. This is a unique skill and coupled with Ken's strategic business acumen makes him in my opinion a prized asset which his next company should consider them-selves most fortunate to have secured". Nigel Stacey, Director of Outsourcing, Cobham PLC

“I have worked with Ken Klar at Sargent Fletcher, a Cobham Company for the last several years. Ken has consistently shown an ability to be both strategic and tactical in the execution of his responsibilities. As a member of the Sargent Fletcher executive team he is a problem solver with an eye for detail, exceptional program management skills and can be counted on to "step up" when needed to lead cross functional teams. Recently Ken was asked to take on the leadership role for the Business Development team in addition to his current responsibilites as Director of Program Management. Ken quickly educated himself on outstanding issues, adapted quickly to a juggling two roles and has been able focus and motivate the business development team. Ken has strong managerial skills and is viewed by the employees has a straightforward and trusted leader.” Kathi Guiney , Sr Human Resources Consultant , Sargent Fletcher Inc.

Ken has proven to be a reliable and very capable Project Manager and team player. He has worked well under difficult circumstances always looking for new and innovative ways of overcoming the every day obstacles that are thrown at him during the course of a Transitioning Project. Ken has been an integral part of a team that has achieved the Project time scales, within Budget and without any disruption to the Business and, more importantly, to our Customers. I would employ Ken again as a Project Lead without thought". Peter Dobbs - Director of Transformation, Cobham plc.
