Microsoft Consulting Services

Stephen is a rare breed that combines both technical skills and project management capabilities into one individual. His communication skills are excellent and he is equally at home in the boardroom and the server room. Stephen is also an individual of the highest integrity – I have witnessed him sacrificing his personal interests to ensure clients are dealt with fairly and honestly. Stephen is able to make immediate and positive contributions to any organization that he joins. I tried to hire Stephen twice into my group, but the wheels of corporate bureaucracy did not spin fast enough to get it completed before he got snagged by another company.  -L.H. regional leader of project management

...a loss for Microsoft...


Stephen demonstrated solid project management skills, high adaptability, very strong work ethic, superb customer focus, and the ability to thrive under difficult customer-facing circumstances with high stress levels. His departure from Microsoft was a loss for the Project Management community and for Microsoft Consulting Services. He will succeed in future situations which demand the highest levels of performance. -M.L. colleague

I worked closely with Stephen to help ramp up, initiate and kick off the largest consulting projected ever won by MCS and EMC consulting for a MOSS (collaboration) migration for GlaxoSmithKline (GSK). GSK is the second largest pharmaceuticalin the world with offices and workers located across the globe. In the time I worked with Stephen it was quite evident how hard he works and the level of detail he put forth to develop a multiple workstream project plan and budget that covered multiple teams both from MCS and EMC. Additionally, Stephen displayed complete understanding and knowledge of project initiation and the needs to development of project planning, risk planning, issue planning, budget planning, scope planning and schedule planning as defined by the PMI institute. I would highly recommend Stephen for a position within EMC based on my brief encounter in teaming with him. -D.L. partner sales executive
