The measure of someone’s character is how they act when challenged. In his role, Wadhah has seen his share of technical challenges, but I want to recommend him not only for his technical ability, but for how he has dealt with challenges. I recall a project which he had no involvement at all, but when asked, at the 11th hour, he gladly stepped in and worked through the night to satisfy a customer requirement. His actions, and his “team” attitude, were huge assets in keeping a client very happy. An excellent resource!!

Toby Keeping

I highly recommend Wadhah to any organization seeking strong technical abilities, leadership, and the ability to “think outside the box”.

Wadhah is possesses the rare combination of extremely strong technical skills and the ability to demonstrate the business value of technical solutions to clients.

A valuable addition to any organization.

Ralph Desvaux

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Wadhah for the past 2 years and seen him grow from a Senior IT Specialist into a Solutions Architect.

Wadhah’s ability to turn high level customer IT Infrastructure requests into cost effective scalable solutions has been what sets Wadhah apart from the pack. Coupled with his strong IT technical background and ability to effectively communicate with the customer is what has led to Wadhah’s success.

I would recommend Wadhah to any company looking for a person with the right mix of strong technical skills and the ability to communicate effectively with stakeholders at all levels of an organization.
