  • Dustin is one of the most knowledgeable and hard-working individuals I have had the pleasure of working with. He has a commanding knowledge of the technology, business and compliance drivers that affect our customers in the HIPAA and PCI regulatory space. Dustin is able to articulate the most complex technical issues to prospects of any technical aptitude which has proven invaluable during the sales process. I would highly recommend Dustin for any position that requires a high level of technical knowledge coupled with the skills to effectively present information to customers.
