Recommendations

    I was Product manager at JDSU when Carl was the Solution Architect / Software Development Manager. Carl and I worked together to create product strategy and execution plans to deliver solutions for the market and to key customers. Carl had great technical knowledge. He also had a balance of understanding the business and how to work with customers. Carl was able to take business requirements from product marketing and customers and translate into an engineering plan that would satisfy the business and customer needs. His ability to listen, communicate and execute allowed him to do a great job leading his development team and providing direction.

    I have worked with Carl for many years. There were many difficult high priority projects that would not have been successful without Carl's leadership and vision. Carl is very good in front of customers and understands the industry. Carl would be an asset to any organization and can hit the ground running.

  • David austin

    I worked with Carl for several years at JDSU/Viavi where he was a key leader on the engineering team, as a principle software engineer, engineering manager, and system architect. Carl is a very smart dedicated architect who can easily grasp both the business needs and technical possibilities of solutions, create achievable implementation plans, and provide strong technical leadership to the development team along with clear communication to Marketing, Sales, and customers. With his superior technical abilities combined with his work ethic and pursuit of excellence he has my strong endorsement.
