I am Vice President, Business Development for KPMG in Atlantic Canada focussing on IT Advisory services. I am also the chairman of the board for NATI (Newfoundland and Labrador Association of Technical Industries).
Chris and I worked together with Excel Communications for more than 3 years. Chris has many strengths but his greatest strength is his ability to execute. He is hard-working and focused.
Chris was a key factor in my decision to work at Plato as I had always found him to be very personable, approachable and engaging. After working with Chris directly for the past while, I have found him to be a very positive, honest and hard working individual that is a true pleasure to engage with. He is very keen to offer respect and kind words to others and is a true leader in how he positively motivates and empowers those around him. He cares very much about his customers and will work to ensure that they are pleased with the services they are provided.
Chris is professional in his approach. He has the ability to directly relate to clients and provide the needed recommendations for solutions. His overall enthusiam is contagious and well received.
I have worked with Chris Spurvey for a number of years as both a NATI member through Plato Group and as a valued member of the NATI Board of Directors for the years 2010/2011 and I recommend him on Linkedin.
I have had the pleasure of working with Chris for several years at Plato. In that time, we have seen the company through tremendous growth and change and Chris has been a critical to that success. He is a trustworthy and hardworking professional with a strong desire to succeed in every situation.
Chris is always very professional, pro-active and thorough in his role as Plato's Director of Business Development. He has developed a good rapport and strong working relationships with clients, business partners, and colleagues.
I am a Chris Spurvey fan!! His positive, easy going style is the perfect combination for his obvious technical knowledge and his drive to produce results! I would LOVE to have an organization filled with people like Chris!!
At the time of writing this recommendation, I've worked with Chris for 4 years. I know him to be a very people-oriented individual and a straight-forward, honest person. He has excellent interpersonal skills and is very good at building and maintaining relationships. He can drive into detailed requirements but does not lose sight of the 'big picture'. He is able to view issues from many different perspectives and brings a great deal of experience to the table. He has my highest regard.
It is with great pleasure that I am writing this recommendation for Chris Spurvey. Chris and I worked at Plato Consulting in Business development roles, and throughout the time that we had worked together, he had exemplified professionalism, a creative selling approach and strong leadership. Chris was always encouraging, helpful and consistently provided insight into his various markets, which was vital to our mutual success. In short, Chris was a very effective Business Development manager who truly understands the complex world of IT Consulting. He would be a strong asset for any organization.
