Companies We’ve Helped

“Robert is a dedicated professional who manages complex projects across numerous platforms and operating systems. He is a key contributor at CM Crossroads and possesses tremendous technical and communications skills across the IT industry. His personal commitment to the success of every project he is tasked to work on is outstanding!”


Senior I/T Specialist, IBM

“I met Bob when he was brought in to Bear Stearns to take charge of the integration process and, later, the firm’s source code management system – a critical pillar of our systems, and one in which process is vital, but which frankly had not previously received as much attention as it required. Bob revolutionized our approach, creating not only a process from scratch, but painstakingly and patiently educating the firm’s IT community in both it and in the product we used at the time (Clearcase).”


Senior Engineer, American Express

“I’ve known Bob for a number of years now and in that time I have always found him to be a man of great principles and honor. It was with great pleasure that I found he had accepted the position of EiC at CM Crossroads. Bob will be exceptional in this role as he is very knowledgeable of the subject matter (CM), is well rounded all aspects of ALM and security and is very reasonable and easy to work with.”
