“Raphael Klebanov has been appointed to work in the Houston Data Services group for the last 6+ months. His function includes working on various aspects of enterprise Siebel Analytics Project. Raphael’s previous experience with range of database applications, his well-rounded set of technical skills, especially Informatica, made him a valuable reinforcement to the existing group.

 During the work on the project, Raphael has reveled strong professional skills both technical and interpersonal. He volunteered to take on additional responsibility as project progressed. The scope of the development required extensive learning of new tools and techniques that Raphael achieved with ease.

He has demonstrated strong ability and discipline to support the group’s effort remotely from Denver. However when it was necessary he was reporting to Houston office without the delay. As an individual, Raphael is honest, energetic and enjoys helping people. He has excellent communication skills, is liked by his management, and peers.
