“Richard is one of the close associations that I enjoyed working with at Google. Richard is a very driven and enjoyable force that I am fortunate to have known during my time at Google. I always admired the drive in him. He is a very thoughtful entrepreneur who can balance thinking with emotion. He is one of the kind that can adapt to any business environment and he is always looking to improve things around and for him. Any team would be lucky to have him. I wish him all the success in his entrepreneurial endeavors.” July 24, 2010.

“Richard is one of the best employees with which I work. He truly stands above the rest. He is intelligent, he works hard, he knows his stuff, he dives in, hell get the data, hell analyze, hell take ownership, hell volunteer to help, hell run presentations, hell run meetings, and hell get things done. His consultant background is evident because is organized and he always follows through. To top it off, hes a great guy to work with and has a lot of energy and is a lot of fun. He is a polished presenter and can also roll up his sleeves and hammer it out in a brainstorming meeting. Richard is the type of Googler that I would want in every one of my meetings. He is a strategic thinker and, if given the chance, will do great things for Google.
Richards biggest strength, in my opinion, by far, is his desire to step up and take ownership. He not only runs with projects, but he volunteers to run with projects. In fact, Ive been, on many occasions, when a project will already have an owner, and Richard will say, Ill help you with that because I believe its important and he will add his name to the owners list. Employees like this are rare and his tenacity serves him well. The fact that he couples this passion with high intelligence makes for a powerful combination.” February 3, 2008

“Richard is one of the most creatively inquiring minds Ive come across in this industry in a long time. Rather than settle for the status quo, Richard constantly challenges assumed notions and encourages his peers to explore new and exciting ways of doing business. His perspective and inquisitiveness is both refreshing and stimulating and appreciated by his clients and colleagues.” December 5, 2006

“RICHARD IS A BRIGHT, HARD WORKER WHO TAKES HIS WORK SERIOUSLY. HE WAS A MAJOR CONTRIBUTOR ON ASSIGNMENTS AND WAS CONSTANTLY CHALLENGING ME TO GIVE HIM EVEN MORE RESPONSIBILITY. CLIENTS LIKED HIM AND RESPECTED HIS INTELLIGENCE. I WOULD RECOMMEND HIM TO ANYONE.” August 3, 2005
