"Ron delivered on time and on budget. Our product launch was a big success and Ron continued to work with us over the years designing optional product enhancements. We valued that Ron takes-on only assignments for which he knows he is well qualified. His designs consistently met performance goals, and his projections of project cost and schedule proved to be dependable. His skill and work ethic were so well respected that AEHR continued to call on him well after I left the company." Top qualities: "Great Results, On Time, High Integrity"

"I had the privilege of working with Ron"... "on multiple challenging projects in which Ron performed the research and wrote detailed technical reports. His work was always clear, concise, well thought through, and complete. During these activities, I grew to rely upon his judgment and integrity to the point that simply passing a project to him meant that it would be done correctly and on time. I enjoyed working with Ron and would engage him as a consultant again without hesitation." Top qualities: "Great Results, Expert, High Integrity"
