What others say

Having the opportunity to work with Radu, I’ve managed to witness a highly dedicated, committed and customer focused individual.

― Catalina Dinu, Manager @Microsoft

Radu is a full stack architect, who knows very well Microsoft solutions, not only the SharePoint architecture and related frameworks. I had the opportunity to work with him in a very challenging project. When I joined the team, there was a hybrid SharePoint 2016 farm concept in place, implemented in a full functional Azure test environment. The final production solution was a SharePoint 2016 hybrid infrastructure, 6 geo-located farms in Europe, America and Asia (81 servers) with Office 365 – SharePoint Online. I learned a lot of new things from him related to Microsoft Azure Services and architecture.

― Catalin Iovu, Senior Consultant @BearingPoint

I have collaborated with Radu for the past 5 years on projects but mostly on technical issues. He is a highly skilled professional, keeps customer meetings action oriented and he can develop innovative strategies under adverse conditions.

― Theophile Pepeye, Senior Consultant @Systematic

I had the pleasure of working with Radu during a 6 months project. In his role, as an O365 architect he showed a sincere interest both in providing the best solution for the customer and as well in lending support and guidance to the colleagues.
