Selected written comments from management and clients:

"Wayne worked as interim CTO during a personnel transition. The chief mission was to keep our ASP systems functioning and to keep projects on track. Not only did Wayne achieve this, he additionally identified areas where remediation was required and worked with our team to develop plans to address things. Moreover, he developed an infrastructure upgrade plan that was better than our previously existing plan, and which could be achieved at lower cost. Wayne is highly ethical, principled and an excellent diagnostician, he works well with the people above and below the position at which he enters an organization, he is cost-conscious. I recommend him unreservedly."
