“Harrison [RASF Consulting] was brought on as a partner used for a company acquisition. He impressed me from day one with his high level of detail, excellent documentation and overall professionalism. Harrison worked side by side with my team and contributed to its success of the acquisition. Go forward four years and he's become an integral part of my IT team. During this time, he's taken the lead and ownership on many initiatives and projects within the Infrastructure team. In addition to his strong technical skills, I'm very impressed with Harrison's communication skills. Not only does he keep me and my team informed technically but he's very personable to the end users explaining in a non-technical way - what's going on. This communication still is not very common in the IT world and is refreshing. I also applaud his skills with vendor negotiations and holding the vendor accountable if a problem or event arises. I know a lot of IT people and Harrison is one of the half dozen people on my short list. I strongly recommend him to any organization that is looking for a true IT professional.” — Marc Heiland (former IT Infrastructure Director – Camoplast Solideal)
