I believe that Manley Collins is a very positive and uplifting addition to any company. Our work together in the past at Bank of America showed me that he sparks great positive change in the culture he works in. He managed employee activities and IT administration tasks at an expert level. He is very hard working and detail in his approach. It was an honor and a learning experience to work alongside him.

As my direct report and the principle SharePoint developer for our USDOT Program, Manley worked diligently to produce new features and bug fixes, and respond to constant last minute customer requests in an agile environment. His work was always high quality and he excelled at identifying the optimal path to a solution, whether it was in front end design or business logic. I highly recommend Manly as he is sure to be a conscientious, energetic addition to any team

Manley Collins and I worked together at Chicago Public Schools through Blackwell Consulting Services. As a lead for the IMPACT program, I could rely on Manley's expertise, professional aptitude, and quick response to resolve complex issues relating to directory services as he, on many occasions, assisted the directory services team on problem resolution in addition to his assigned duties as Senior SharePoint Consultant. Manley's depth and breadth of professional expertise is only eclipsed by his perseverance and passion for excellence. I look forward to working alongside Manley again if our career paths should once again cross.

Manley was brought in to put control back into our SharePoint Service. There were many loose ends and Manley establsihed a new workable solution that all groups were satisfied with. This clean-up activity took 4 months to complete, but the end result was a well controlled and managed service to support many groups and many agencies. Manley supported this service and maintained its credibility until project closeout.

Manley is a highly proficient individual and works well under pressure and on his own. He is detailed oriented and professional. I would highly recommend Manley on any project.
