I worked with Fred on multiple projects over an 8 year time period and found him to be a highly skilled IT professional with the ability to lead project teams while contributing his own expertise to project success. Fred was able to bring extensive systems knowledge to bear on my team's component engineering requirements and tailor effective solutions. I highly recommend him.

Denise Martin

I was lucky enough to report to Fred for 3 1/2 years at RFMD as a Sr Business Analyst. Fred has solid analytical and communication skills allowing him to bring ideas and people together. He is skilled at working within challenging organizational structures and is able to make the hard business decisions. I have seen Fred cancel popular projects that did not make financial sense or did not make the best use of resources. He is also adept at addressing resource utilization to revive struggling projects. He is Detail orientated and also thinks of new and innovative ideas to improve the process, save money, and accomplish tasks at a faster rate. Fred has wonderful people skills and is supportive of his team and is a good role model. An asset to any progressive organization.
