The end result was a huge savings in our expenses. He also worked closely with engineering and built a virtualization solution for linux which helped us to use our hardware efficiently and save costs again. James was looked up by other ops and engineering people as an architect and leader. He is a team player and always thought about Ning first. I am happy to provide more specifics.

    Dir. Software Engineering at Dell
    He drives long term architecture, and is then able to translate that to the development team. He stays engaged with the development team to HELP them get it right (not just tell them what to do). He is inspirational, and due to his deep technical knowledge he gains the trust of the team and they willingly follow his lead. He has strong opinions, is decisive, and due to the credibility he builds with teams he is listened to. He was the perfect architect/CTO partner for my development team.

    As the CTO, James provided technology and architecture leadership. But, in reality, he provided a lot more than that. He made special efforts to get to know everyone in the engineering team, and was with the team as we struggled and as we celebrated our successes. He is down to earth, and is very good at listening to suggestions and making changes based on them. James helped make the case for migrating from waterfall to scrum, supported the team as we migrated, and backed engineering whenever anyone in management doubted them.
