“It takes a very special person to reinvent himself as we like to say. In marketing many organizations have hired retired professional athletes. They can often times garner enough attention to ultimately bring in business whatever the service offering may be. I hired Charles thinking that he would be able to make visceral connections based on the fact that he was a retired NFL player.

That wasn’t Charles’ agenda; his goal was to learn his craft with the same dedication and focus it took to play football all of his life. From day one he immersed himself into the IT industry. Many long hours were spent in my opening. He invested in himself through study and being the most prepared in the room whenever he was recruiting and sourcing for a client. What usually take 12 months took 3 months with Charles.

But what is even more powerful is his character. He is honest and dedicated which is more important than anything else and a gentleman’s, gentleman. It’s an absolute pleasure to say he is an excellent teammate, colleague and friend.”

managed Charles at Prodiverse

“Charles is an extremely hardworking individual: early to work and late to leave. He performs his functions as expected and goes above and beyond to exceed expectations. Despite only being here for about a month, he has already made one of the hardest placements on the IT side at GLG, which is highly impressive in and of itself.

Charles is easygoing and quite the charismatic individual. His radiance is quite infectious, and his optimism is reflected on those around him. He works well independently but contributes greatly in a team environment and would be an asset to any company.”
