Recommendations

A preview of what LinkedIn members have to say about Mo:

  • Mo joined our team at a critical milestone in the development of a performance monitoring system. I quickly grew to trust Mo's judgement and recommendations. He was focused on ensuring we developed a product that would meet the office's long-term needs, and quickly established himself as a member of the oversight team.
  • Mo is an amazing Project Manager, who maintains the proper balance between technical prowess and soft/people skills. During a 4 month period, I witnessed Mo's leadership style, as he brought together a software developer team and their customers to finish up the steps needed for software acceptance review. These two sides had previously displayed tense animosity for one another, but Mo's calm, yet steady drive brought both sides together to create the best product possible in the available timeframe. I would highly recommend Mo to be a part of your team's success.
