Beyond this support, I have always valued the education Dave has provided the proposal team around CTG’s staffing business and recruiting processes, which assists us in creating compelling client-facing documents.”

Dave’s work ethic and commitment to deliver what he promises is second to none. He faces projects head on and never shies away from challenging work. I have no doubt that his roll-up-the-sleeves, let’s-get-it-done attitude is what earned him this promotion. Congratulations, Dave!”

I have great respect for Dave and look forward to working with him more on a day-to-day basis. Congratulations, Dave, on your new role. You couldn’t have gotten a better team of people . . . LOL!”

Under Dave’s direction, we’ll be able to leverage the strength of our recruiting organization and team up with our new sales organization. I’m truly excited for the future of CTG!”

Over twelve years, we have worked closely together on many uniquely different matters. His attention to detail and knowledge on the various subjects is commendable.
