contractual duties in exemplary fashion and provided valuable help to the research

During my time with ESL as Technical Director we used Roy Fuscone’s services to support in creating and implementing our marketing strategy around the inspection focused software products we developed for public sector.

He advised us on, and then helped us to implement:

Roy’s work was thorough, professional and effective. I would recommend Roy’s services to other businesses and hope to work with him again.
