"I highly recommend Dean for the work he performed as our Chief Information Officer. Dean was hired by our CFO to centralize the information technology of our publicly traded company from over 10 separate locations into 1 corporate location. This process also required Dean to improve network performance, construct a new virtual infrastructure environment, build a secure mobile presence, reduce overall technology costs, reduce security threats and tutor his employees about new innovative ideas for which they did not have the skills.
While Dean’s main objective was the centralization, he soon recognized there were business issues that had slipped through the cracks which required immediate attention. Dean identified those issues to the CFO and I while also providing a range of solutions to remediate the issues. Without Dean’s due diligence, we would have spent an extra $100K each year for technology that was outdated and a security risk to the company. In addition, he reduced our technology budget 33% the first year while improving the quality of services. Dean is a leader that has vision, the drive to see it through and ability to maintain synchronization between both technology and a functioning business."
