Selected            Nimsoft:
Recommendations:       “Radi added a high degree of professionalism to the Nimsoft Product
                        Management process. He worked closely with the remote development team at
                        all hours of the day and night to bring new products to the field. His commitment,
                        knowledge and capabilities are an asset to any product management team.” –

                       “Radi is a tremendous asset. His gracious way of working with customers and
                        coworkers was always an inspiration. As a colleague in product management, he
                        always was anticipating Marketing's needs. His communication skills and high
                        standards put him far above others.” – Stephanie Graves Xavier, Worldwide

                        schedule and deliverables for a key enabling component of the AppManager
                        Suite. This component, supported by the marketing and positioning materials
                        Radi helped develop, delivered on a key promise for NetIQ's future, and directly
                        impacted several very large sales.” – Nils Davis, Sr. Product Manager
                       “Radi mastered an incredibly fragmented and inconsistent product space in a
                        very short time. He provided excellent direction and support for both myself (as
                        development manager) and the engineers involved. He played an invaluable role
                        in NetIQ's only real cross lab/cross product success - the AM/SM Connector.” –

                        releases and interacted closely with Field personnel on ongoing product
                        evaluations. Radi is well qualified for a senior product management position.” –
