“I worked with J.T. on security and disaster recovery requirements of his product. As a product, manager, J.T. was one of those individuals who was attuned to both business and the technical aspects of his projects. He advocated strategy, yet he knew the details of the components. He approaches the role as a true product manager, and not just a gantt and task list jockey.

Jeff Drust, Vice President, Board Director, CSF (Computer Suppliers Federation)

“I have worked with J.T. for many years while he was at Autodesk and must say that J.T. is one of the most compelling Technical Managers I worked with. The challenges we faced, tackled and resolved in the automotive market were magnificent and ranged from simple technical hurdles to complex solutions integration and cross functional relationships. However, as most in the technical sales field know, the most important challenge(s) come in the form of customer expectations as well as future foresight for the proposed solutions. J.T. was excellent at managing the customers’ expectations and driving concerns and issues to successful conclusions.
I would highly recommend J.T. to any organization seeking a very motivated, analytical and committed individual.
Nabil Sater, Enterprise Sales Executive II, EAI, UGS, EDS PLM, Siemens
