To compliment Christina, it has to be described on many levels as she is a multi-talented personality. I have worked closely with her over the past 10 years on some very complex business projects. To under-estimate her power to create is like under-estimating the force of a hurricane. One of the most progressive thinkers in today's complex technology world, she has has blended her years of talent and experience to create this dynamic new vision for businesses.
Jerrold Burden, CEO Wall Street Media Co.
Christina is a very effective business development manager. Christina develops strong relationships that have longevity and she networks with ease. Christina understands the importance of bringing all the strengths of Accenture's capability to display the breadth of talent to our clients. Christina brings a fresh approach to doing business and is a pleasure to work with in the field.
Leslie M., Sr Partner
Christina added a new level of energy to the NY sales group. Her knowledge and enthusiasm for the organization and its services was well-projected in meetings and well-received which made her effective in building new relations in areas that the company has never been effective and establishing these at a very high level. She was a pleasure to work.
Calvin M., Architect
Christina was instrumental in developing a training program and documentation for our growing business. During this and other IT Projects she consulted on, Christina always showed her creative, goal-oriented nature that one knew was bound to help her succeed in business as well as in life.
Doug L., IT Executive
Having worked with Christina professionally, I found her to be highly organized and goal oriented when challenged with demanding tasks for projects that had strict timelines. She is a team player that is always thinking ahead and is not afraid to ask the difficult questions when faced with situations that could compromise a set goal. I would highly recommend her in any professional capacity that demands a person who can lead and deliver on their promise.
