Dex and his team maintained these demo sites with great user stories, ensured timely releases to coincide new product versions, rolled out international instances closer to APAC, and also brought innovations to the demo sites like self-guided tours.

There was also timely communication from Dex about these updates. It was great working with Dex. It certainly didn’t feel like we were working 10k miles apart.

professional that is collaborative, inspiring and a poster child for being a team player? Well, you’d be right on all accounts. Dex is one of those rare people that I’ve come to know in my life that stands out from the rest. He and I met years ago working together on Age of Empires, and we’ve stayed in touch ever since. If you are in a creative industry of any shape or form, Dex would be an asset to your team. Think of him as your creative problem solver, and he can do all the voice work too. He’s literally a one-stop talent shop!

deal closing tools.

I remember the team using it extensively at the VMWorld booth right after we shipped Virtualization Manager 7.0. During the conference the demo stack was up and responsive 100% of the time.

In addition, Dex is super dependable and a great guy to have around the office.

come through every time.

The demos Dex maintained at SolarWinds were integral to the successes of the sales reps I trained. Over the four years we worked together, Dex was very responsive to demo requests and proactively included me in discussions about changes that were coming to that demo environment.

What stood out the most to me was Dex’s willingness to reach across departments, solicit feedback and make sure needs were met. Once he understood our business needs, he never dropped the ball making sure those needs were met. Even when we were in a rush to get things done, Dex came through and always seemed to have a good line or a bit of banter to break the tension too!

Technical qualifications and experience are easy to document, but the people skills are harder to identify. Dex has those skills and abilities to build relationships with co-workers and achieve mutually beneficial goals.

interactions collaborating on various PRD.

He was passionate about all of the products under his responsibility. He gave me detailed descriptions and helped me to understand how the process works. I was very much impressed by Dex’s professionalism and his dedicated focus.

Dex also had the responsibility for product marketing that required support of data analytics implemented with Tableau. We successfully collaborated using SQL Master Data Management tools to gain better insight into project data. I strongly recommend Dex to anyone who needs a dedicated Sr. Product Manager, who can create an effective work environment and get the job done!

I was the producer at Gas Powered Games and worked directly with Dex during this time.

Dex not only handled all the production issues for MS but also helped out with extremely creative video blogs with Chris Taylor for the title. Dex is professional and was a pleasure to work with during the production. Highly recommend any product management or creative cooperations with Dex.
