“Josh shows a great deal of dedication to his work. His mind was regularly in high gear about ideas, improvements and value-add. Though the digital work was clearly his domain, he also thinks more broadly about the business and looks to develop ideas beyond that area of focus. I found him reliable, valuable, and trustworthy and would happily hire him again in another organization.”
