Catherine J.

"... Marc stood apart in how successfully he managed fiercely disparate stakeholders, championed user-centered design, maximized legacy technology, deftly utilized vendors to the best of their strengths and remained impossibly genteel and calm throughout ...

"Not only is Marc an amazing manager, he is also a great mentor. If there were a factory that could produce the perfect combination of everything I look for in a business relationship, Marc would be the mold. Not only does he understand the value of a great worker (both financially and intellectually), he also has the ability to keep all parties in a project completely happy while allowing them each the appropriate amount of autonomy to not FEEL 'managed'."
Nicholas O.

"[Marc] brings a fresh and innovative perspective to each assignment."
