    Dave is great! He found me a really good contract position with a leading private company in Denver and helped manage serious turmoil in the client as his team tried to help the client survive. Client budget problems led to terminations, including mine, but Dave turned to and is helping us all find new positions. I don’t quite have my new position at the time of this writing, but Dave is wheeling and dealing to make this happen. It’s Better with Bacon.
