Testimonials:

 

"Juan is an excellent project manager with great communication skills in leading a cross-functional team. I worked with him on two projects involving medical devices, and found him to be very perceptive and willing to dive into understand our company’s process to effectively keep projects on-time and getting projects done right. He is a great team player and made time to understand the intricacies of each project. Juan is a very good team motivator and actively consulted each team member to manage project schedules and proactively intercepting potential delays to maintain project milestones. He is a well-rounded professional with an impeccable work ethics."

Sr. Electrical Engineer at Fresenius Medical Care

"Juan is an excellent cross-functional team leader and project manager. I worked with him on several projects and he never hesitated to ask my opinion and back me up with outside vendors when I had to "lay down the law". He always gave my team and I time to inspect the prototype parts that were going into lifesaving devices so that we could ensure quality. He knew that getting a project done on-time wasn't as important as getting it done right, with quality engineering and components, so that our patients could trust us. Due to this, I always worked extremely hard to get his projects in on-time or early, because I knew that he cared and I wanted him to succeed and advance at Fresenius, where they could use a quality-minded person like him in leadership roles."
QA/QC Manager at Fresenius Medical Care
"Juan is a very diligent and hard working consultant. He brings to the table a mix of humility and hard project management skills that make him really good at what he does. I was always very pleased to see Juan engage with clients as you could see that he genuinely cared for them and that in deployment he would work with clients to solve whatever challenge was given to him."
