IT Project Manager
"During 2015/2016 Craig led a mission-critical Data Centre migration Programme for his client, PepsiCo, consisting of cross-functional / cross-vendor projects across Europe and with myself in the Eastern Europe / Russia geography.

I would describe Craig as strong leader, reliable result-delivering partner and excellent person.

If I had another Programme like this, I would definitely contract Craig once again."
