  18. 18. Professional Reference • “John was the Director of Engineering for TallaCom, ESA and I was the VP for PMO, so directly interfaced with John on a daily basis. He is passionate about his work and technically competent. He is a positive and very convincing leader, who places a very high value on the capabilities of his assigned engineers and he ensures they deliver commensurate results. John leads by example and will roll up his sleeves and work at the lowest levels when necessary to ensure that his young engineers are properly trained and supervised. He is also extremely effective at the highest executive levels with sage advise and focused recommendations for engineering solutions. He is known for Summary White Papers that simplify engineering solutions for senior level staff with supporting documentation to address any detailed inquiries. John is a solid leader of engineers and is a tenacious supporter for the objectives of his senior executive staff. His formal education includes an MBA, and he is very knowledgeable of other departmental areas such as Finance, Business Development and Program Management. His diversity and expertise makes him an invaluable executive staff resource. I highly recommend John to a senior executive level position in the engineering discipline, and recognize that his skill set traverses many outer disciplines, which makes him unique qualified to a position of executive stature.” • March 22, 2010 .Jim Davidson , Sr. Marketing Manager , ITT CS
