“One of the very best remote managers I have ever worked with” – KLA-Tencor Corp, USA

“I have known David for about six years now. I hired him as the first European IS Manager when I worked at KLA-Tencor, where I was the Director of Global IS Operations and Support Services.

One of my challenges when I was hired at KLA-Tencor was to fix the computer, systems, and network problems the company had in Europe. There had never really been any IS presence in Europe, even though the company had three offices in three different countries. I selected David as the first Manager of European IS; together he and I spent the next year or so building an IS organization in Europe.

Some of the highlights included: planning and implementing several offices in multiple countries, implementing access and training for European use of our ERP system, (Oracle Financials), building a new European WAN, implementing several production servers, (exchange, NT, Unix, including backups), implementing a global standard desktop with outsourced support, (Dell), and later on hiring a European IS staff of at least three people.

David was involved in every step of the operation, including planning, coordination, and hands on installation work.

His biggest asset, at least from my perspective, was his ability to communicate with the corporate IT group, and help create an environment of real teamwork. I have managed several managers around the world, and found David to be one of the very best remote managers I have ever worked with. He always made it seem like he was sitting in the next row of cubicles, not across the ocean. He had a good relationship with his users as well.

I highly recommend David and would hire him again given the opportunity.”
