Don’t take our word for it – here’s what our clients say:
I had the opportunity to work with Lawton in the same team for 3 years, where he pitched, won and managed the most valued accounts. A clear vision and deep insight of the technology matched together with an honest approach made it easy to deliver to our customers. For the technical lead it’s key to promise what can be delivered and Lawton did just that, paying close attention to the road-map and providing valuable feedback; this approach allowed the team to deliver more value and relevant features. On the personal side it’s easy to bond with Lawton; his personal skills and personality make personal and professional relations productive and lasting.
