Gary is one of those guys that you want to have on your team no matter what you are working on.

His talents and skills never cease to amaze, no matter what needs to get done he finds a way to do it.

The best part about working with Gary is that he has no ego to try and manage because he is such a team player.

Gary is a very resourceful and experienced Senior Project Manager.

It is always a pleasure to work with him and learn from his sharing.

Not only being a very "People" manager, Gary also sticks with his principles and flexibility as a PMP.

Gary's honed project management skills were key to the success of this application delivery project.

In addition to the complexity of the technology rollout, Gary's involvement was critical in the ongoing management of the expectations of the users.

His attention to detail and his ability to control project scope proved invaluable many times throughout this project.

I fully appreciate and recommend Gary's expertise in project management.

Gary is an excellent project manager and leader.

He is willing and able to have the hard conversations with his stakeholders and is very attentive to the project team, the project successes and challenges and is a trusted adviser.

I would hire and work with Gary again, without any hesitation.

He did phenomenal work for our company on a very critical project.

I have had the good fortune of working with Gary for the past year as the Director of Education Services, and as a Consultant where I reported to him on Projects.

Over my career, I have worked with several Project Managers, but few as stellar as Gary.

His approach to Project Management is through Management Consulting, something that he is extremely successful at, a skill that brings true value to a client beyond status updates.

I have seen Gary through stressful situations, and his cool as a cucumber approach to navigating through these situations has been contagious, thereby helping the team get through stormy weather projects.

To sum it up, Gary is a gifted, grounded, level-headed, experienced and exceptional Management Consultant and Senior Project Manager that would truly be an asset to any Organization.

I would most gladly recommend Gary for any position at any client, and eagerly await the opportunity to be working with him again.

As the Manager of Application Maintenance and Support Services for Accenture, I had the privilege of working closely with Gary Penner who was a Delivery Manager at the WCB-Alberta.

Gary was always pragmatic, open, honest and fair in his dealings with Accenture and I believe that this contributed significantly to our close relationship and the success that we had during that time.

Gary is an excellent IT professional who is knowledgeable about the business of Information Technology and does what he can to ensure that IT services are focused on the needs of the business.

I was very impressed by Gary's ability to quickly define new reporting requirements to aid in better decision making and his willingness to engage others in defining solutions for difficult situations.

I believe that Gary's strong relationships with his colleagues and Service Providers enabled him to more readily implement solutions internally that continue to provide sustained benefits for the business.

I was very pleased with the opportunity to work with Gary and I will always use him as my example of the "perfect client" to work for.

Gary would be a tremendous leader in any organization and I highly recommend Gary for such a position.

It was my pleasure to work with Gary Penner during the implementation of the Magstar Retail Solution.

As the Project Manager for Value Drug Mart, Gary represented the needs and requirements of the client with clarity and an insight of the needs of the users which assisted in ensuring a smooth transition and conversion.

Throughout the course of the project Gary handled the roll as the bridge between Magstarís staff and VDMís staff professionally and with respect to all participants in the project.

I can easily recommend Gary as a Project Manager.
