I have known Ed for four years and in that time we have created a very close business and personal relationship. I met Ed when my firm worked with him while he served as the Regional Administrator for GSA Region 4 in Atlanta and as acting Chief of Staff for GSA in Washington DC. Ed is a very perceptive hard working individual who can quickly narrow down options and to provide clear and concise business decisions. He is well respected throughout the federal and private business community, and has been instrumental in guiding me and my company in researching and contracting facility related work. I very much enjoy working with Ed. Ed served as a Marine Corps Officer, he is the consummate gentleman and it is always a pleasure to meet with him on a professional and personal nature. I highly recommend Ed as a colleague and friend.
