"I have worked with Noel in multiple capacities - one to help him find talent to support/supplement his team and another to help him personally find a new IT job. In both scenarios, I found Noel to be very easy to work with, candid, and conscientious. Noel is one of the few people that is as knowledgeable technically as he is adept at looking at the big picture. His deep technical knowledge and experience provides the foundation for quick appropriate decision making as a manager/leader. Even in a project director or PM role, it is common for Noel to be found with sleeves rolled up actively engaged with all aspects of the team and the work. When an important project needed to get done, Noel was always asked to be a part of it. In some cases, he was asked to lead it. Where he was not directly involved, his managers would still seek him out and solicit his opinion. He is confident, politely assertive, cool under pressure, and an excellent communicator. Noel is a very sharp and driven person and I would eagerly recommend him, both as a person and IT professional."

Lou Cataline Managing Director, Randstad Engineering US

"I have had the opportunity of working with Noel on a number of occasions. It has always been a great experience. His attention to detail in the IT arena and high level of personal and professional integrity make him a valuable asset to any company. I look forward to working with Noel well into the future, he's a real professional."

Christian Hernandez Senior Manager, Cardio Partners
