"Bill led the mechanical design effort for us on a hand-held instrument development project. Not only was his portion of the work done on time and within budget, it exceeded our expectations for design quality. We felt that Bill kept our companies interests and priorities in mind throughout the program. We would definitely use him again in the future and I would highly recommend him for mechanical design and project management roles."
"Bill has made many key contributions at WPI and Powerak. During our developments he demonstrated excellent mechanical and system aptitude at understanding and reducing our inventions into compelling products. He has a remarkable ability to engage and work with people at all levels. Bill worked very effectively with our principle scientist reducing scientific concepts from academia to manufacturable, simple, competitive and exciting product solutions."
“TriAxial was putting together some key fixed contract system design-manufacture proposals. My concern was how to bound the proposal reducing the risk of significant requirements misunderstanding. A brief conversation with Bill helped us to understand the typical dynamics between customer and supplier in a system design. Within hours Bill had provided a design specification, diagram, and concept of operations. Then he offered to put together some a few paragraphs delineating the difference between expected design optimization and what constitutes new requirements. They were spot on and I dropped them in our final proposal.” April 7, 2011"
"Bill presented a new and professional image of our Engineering department to the rest of the company and customers. He was the driving force to install new procedures and discard the obsolete. He worked hard to drag the rest of the company up to the current decade and cut out old useless crap. I would be more than ready to work with him again.” February 25, 2010
"We were a day away from submitting a key DOD contract proposal. The solicitation required specific responses to many acronyms including a detailed risk management plan—unfamiliar territory for us. We needed help. Bill dropped in and within an hour had understood the challenge. Lucky he found us operationally prepared but lacking in the necessary written communication. In less than a day we had an outstanding written line-by-line strategic response. A little fine tuning and we were done. The final result was professional and a feather in our cap. The paratrooper analogy suits Airborne Engineering well."
"I have 30+ years in Aerospace and found Bill to a very capable and experienced engineer with proven leadership capabilities. He has demonstrated his Leadership by reorganizing our Engineering department and making it more efficient. The department now has greater accountability as well as the need to work to deadlines. He established priorities and metrics to track those priorities. His skill set has been particularly useful in bringing several new and key products to market during his term with us. Prior to Bill’s employment at AMI, our last new product took 3 ½ years to get to the same point. He introduced the scientific method into the Engineering departments approach to assuring our new products met or exceeded the design requirements. In meetings with other department he has demonstrated his ability to work with other Managers as a team player. He has a good sense of humor and is easy to work with. He has helped me on many occasions. He has helped me solve problems with our suppliers and taken the initiative to follow those problems to their Root Cause in order to eliminate the problems by effecting changes in Engineering. He has provided a channel for me to communicate with Engineering and the much needed feedback (for closure) on many activities. I have no problem getting answers from him when I need help. He never tells me that he doesn't have time to talk to me. I find that he follows through on what he has promised me."
" During the two years I reported to Bill I was impressed by his knowledge and professionalism. He was instrumental in implementing six-sigma practices into the organization to improve quality and streamline processes.” February 6, 2010"
“I worked closely with Bill on several patent projects. He is a very knowledgeable engineer and always clearly communicated all the information required to write a successful patent document.” October 25, 2010"
