Quinton and I worked together on several projects at UCLA Anderson. He is a "go-getter" who takes initiative, thinks on his feet and always gets things done with a smile on his face. He is friendly, analytical and a master negotiator. He has a great sense of humor and is one of the most versatile people I have had the pleasure of working with. His strong communication and leadership skills make him a great asset to any organization. I look forward to working with him again.

I met Quinton through his volunteer efforts with the Los Angeles ISSA chapter as the elected Treasurer. He is very organized with great people skills and follow-through as demonstrated by the solid chapter finances. He is great with networking and never fails to stay in touch with clients, partners, and associates.
