“Eddie is a premier professional and one of the most talented people that I have ever been associated with professionally. He is articulate, poised in the toughest of circumstances, and a brilliant thinker at both the tactical and strategic levels. Eddie has been the “go to” person on many of our team’s most important and sensitive projects. In every instance, the results he produced were outstanding. Eddie has a superb ability to anticipate business pitfalls before they appear to others and to formulate sound plans of action for dealing with these pitfalls. Eddie is also an inspiring individual who brings out the best in people — superiors, peers and subordinates alike. If I was given an assignment of enormous importance to our firm which required dealing with the public and governmental entities, Eddie is the first person I would select April 6, 2009 for my team.”
