Andrew Kass
We worked together  •  Vice President, Hitachi Consulting. Previously General Manager/Sr. Director, Microsoft. Massachusetts Institute of Technology grad.
Andrew is a very talented, amazing and a top-notch engineer. Although he has held several high profile executive roles in large multi-nation ... al corps (Oracle, Microsoft); he never lost touch with his love of coding. He is hard-working, resourceful architect who does not stop till he has solved the problem with the best solution in the time constraints given. I highly recommend him.
