In the course of my questions, I noted that he thinks well on his feet and must be very knowledgeable in his field to be able to do so. He is unusual, in that he is very independent of thought, always available and I’ve noticed he does not punch a clock. A key attribute is his conscientiousness. If he feels he can do better with an answer, he’ll get back to me later after getting more information. There is no one I trust more than Richard; He is level headed and sound emotionally. There is no ego involved, as I have experienced with others. Courteous, friendly but remains respectfully professional in our many dealings over 10 years.
