"As Executive Director, Mr. Steiner's work included oversight of our business office, information services and general operations.Mr. Steiner was tasked with providing improved efficiency to our organization, particularly with respect to enhancing our technological capabilities.Mr. Steiner's work in this and other areas was excellent.He applied his many years of experience to his work and quickly displayed a thorough understanding of our network system.
Mr. Steiner worked very well with the attorneys in our firm who provided input on our technology committee and gained their respect and confidence. Mr. Steiner also provided excellent guidance in assisting with several employee related matters. He displayed good analyses of the employment issues and was firm, yet sensitive, in dealing with these situations.
Mr. Steiner has impressed me as a bright, energetic and thoughtful individual. He has excellent follow-up on tasks that he was responsible for and consistently displayed a willingness to undertake assignments in all aspects of firm operations."
"We have always used our in house IT Manager to provide a vision for our office systems, and this time we decided to supplement that with the eyes of an outsider looking in to what we had and where we wanted to be. Mr. Steiner helped us tremendously to focus on what to improve and to prioritize those improvements. He is not only a good communicator but also a good motivator to get decisions made and implemented. When needed, we will call upon him again for his considerable skills."
