He brought constant feedback to my development team, which was critical while navigating the roadmap of never ending one off requirements… I really believe a big part of our success in moving our projects forwardwas Ed bird dogging the big and little details.
Ed has a great knack of interacting with everyone on our projects from VP’s all the way down to the associate engineers/developers. He listens, has empathy and follows up with everyone. The best thing is, he treats everyone as if they are important and he is genuine about it.
