I had the pleasure of working with Jay for several years.

 

I consider it one of the best partnerships of my professional career. Jay managed his digital team to deliver great quality against tight deadlines, technology challenges and client idiosyncrasies of business and embedded technologies.

 

He was always thinking strategically and ahead of the client. His efforts were an integral part of the agency winning the largest account in it's 40+ year history. Pretty out of the park!

Jay and I have collaborated on the design of two, multi-billion-dollar e-commerce websites (Dollar.com and Thrifty.com) and he consistently takes the outcome to the next level.

 

Jay challenged my thinking with wonderfully clever left field ideas that always led to big wins.

 

Jay checks his ego at the door and works each person's idea like it was his own. He makes good ideas great and challenging projects fun. I hope that we get to work together again.

Over the past 6 years Jay and I have worked on countless projects together, too many to count.

 

One thing always shined through when working with Jay. His innate ability to understand our needs and find a way to make the project happen. No matter what the deadline was, or the size of the project, Jay was always there leading his team to achieve what always seem to be the impossible.

 

Not only is Jay the type of person to get the job done, he always does it with a can-do attitude that makes him a pleasure to work with. I am proud to not only consider him a colleague but a friend.

He is incredibly ethical, driven and committed to achieving the most positive outcomes for his shareholders. He maintains an extensive knowledge about SEO, digital marketing, analytics and agile development and leads multiple teams within those domains with urgency and accountability towards product goals and milestones.

Jay's supportive nature, sense of humor and mentoring spirit make him an absolutely wonderful person to have on a management team and is greatly appreciated by those who work with/for him! During the years that we worked together, I would often call Jay for valuable advice/direction on management decisions - and I still do!

Jay is the best web strategist I've ever worked with.

 

He understands how the online world is different, how to interpret those differences, and how to harness those differences to make a website measurably better. He is a skilled leader, managing a team of sometimes-finicky creative artists and obstinate engineers with superb clarity and decisiveness.

 

Best of all, he's an all-around great guy. Easy to work with, fun to argue with, and a blast to celebrate with.
