  • “It is a pleasure to work with Michael. I have complete confidence in his abilities and judgment. My experience in professional work is that there are a small percentage of people, who will be successful in virtually any circumstance, versus a majority who need the support of a well structured set of conditions for a successful outcome. As managers, we must work with both, but it is a pleasure to find the especially talented and one wants to perpetuate indefinitely professional relationships with these individuals.”
