“Our team was faced with a choice of expanding our existing data center or expanding onto a IaaS provider. Not having gone through a data center build-out from scratch before. I wanted to bring in some help to guide us through the known and hidden pitfalls of selecting a vendor and then standing up a new environment.

Rod came highly recommended by trusted friends and colleagues. Rod was critical in the development and collection of the RFI, as well as shepherding our teams though the process of selecting a vendor and then building out an entirely new environment. Rod’s experience was critical is ensuring we were asking the right questions and getting the right answers from the various vendors and ourselves.

Rod was always very professional, to the point, and patient. My experience working with Rod was very positive and I would highly recommend him for future work.”

Gregg Moist- Director of Customer and IT Operations

“Rod customized an ongoing leadership program for our management team. We went through a learning process which helped the team challenge what was being done. This process brought out issues that we solved as a team. We are a stronger team for having gone through this process.”

Brenda Lukens, M.S., SPHR- Human Resources Director at Connexin Software

I highly recommend Rodney for his work ethic, integrity and capabilities. I have seen Rodney build highly effective teams through strong coaching and his ability to handle every situation with a strong, calming influence.

Rodney has had a significant impact in my career and leadership style, helping me build the technical and leadership skills while being a mentor to me throughout my career.

Finally, Rod has a strong strategic vision that enables delivery and implementations to any type of project.”

David K. Wallace- Chief Technology Officer at Greenphire

I interacted with Rod for couple of weeks during his recent visit as a management consultant at Elemica. I got a chance to be a participant of one of the many trainings he organized on the theme of Leadership.
The training was really impressive and educational (practically, not just based on books and theories). More important was keeping the sessions open and sharing rich experiences from his 26 year long professional life at numerous small and big clients.

I will surely recommend Rod to train IT professionals in your team, to take the team and individual spirits to the next level – essential ingredient for the success of any team or company.”

I have observed Rod to be an excellent instructor and a leader who develops leaders.”

“Rodney is an oustanding individual that I’ve known for over 25 years. What impressed me the most was that he always set goals for his life, career, and aspirations and did everything possible to achieve the goals established. He wasn’t afraid to seek guidance and assistance in achieving his goal and was extremely proactive in all he does. His love for IT was unparalled as he demonstrated a passion to learn new technology and how to apply that technology to his work. I would welcome the opportunity to be on the same team with Rodney!”

I can’t recommend his work highly enough.”

Our IT organization was going through a significant amount of change in people, process and technologies. He is one of the most patient people I know and is very passionate about his field and is a great educator and coach. Rodney was always committed to getting the job done. Rodney did not fail me or our organization a single time. He’s a dedicated, ambitious and result driven leader. If you ever need someone to deliver under pressure, no slip-ups, just results, Rodney is your Man!”

Martin Gibbins- Director IT Business Partnership

“As an almost 20 year IT professional, I have had the privilege to work with lots of good people; a select number of exceptional people and an even fewer number of champions.

Rodney falls squarely in the latter category.

In working side by side with him on countless and varied projects and assignments; Rodney’s tireless work ethic, varied subject matter expertise, and his very special way of providing vision, guidance and leadership from Engineer through CIO; constantly kept me on my toes and most of all, taught me how to be better at what I do despite my own lengthy time in my career.

Rodney is a champion because he has the ability to make everyone and whatever organization he chooses to be a part of; immeasurably better.

There are very, few like him and I recommend him wholeheartedly.”

Kevin Johnson- Senior Architect at Wipro

“Rod is not only a well respected IT professional but is recognized for his leadership abilities in new and challenging situations. He has proven himself sucessful in managing people and technology, to the benefit of his clients, and Rod’s advice is sought after by various Fortune 1000 companies.

He has a hand on the pulse of various aspects of the IT industry and consistently enhances his skill-sets.

I would recommend Rod unreservedly for any IT related task or role.”

“Rodney is a consummate professional, highly technical with a superior understanding proper HRM philosophies.

His multifaceted capabilities were of extreme value.”
