I have worked with Todd in different activities for over 10 years. He enjoyed a solid reputation at our company as an effective leader and as a coach to many employees. We never worked directly together at our employment, but collaborated on different events and functions in other domains, especially in industry organizations. I saw Todd’s solid work ethic and competencies first hand in those settings. He also served as an excellent mentor, sounding board, advisor, and counselor to me in many aspects of my professional life over many years and we consulted each other often about all types of matters. He was my most respected adviser and I trusted him implicitly.
