I was beyond impressed with Brad’s ability to efficiently and effectively improve the entire technological infrastructure of an established financial services firm. To say that he performed the equivalent of taking a firm technically from a medieval state to current is not an exaggeration. We worked intimately on a half million dollar portfolio management system implementation that was critical to the firm’s near-term success, where Brad served as project manager. In an extremely difficult environment, both with the board of directors and resources that reported to him, Brad was able to overcome multiple obstacles to complete implementation months early through creative leadership. If presented the opportunity, I would gladly work with Brad again or utilize his services if in need of someone with his expertise. The level of professionalism, knowledge, leadership, and creative approach to problem solving and business optimization that Brad brings to each engagement is remarkable – and rare in today’s business environment.
I have worked with Brad and have found him to be not only professional, skilled and detailed in his work ethic, but passionately invested in the services he provides his clients. He is willing to go the extra step, or the extra mile when necessary and brings a unique perspective to his clients businesses. E3 Consulting stands alone in their service and product offerings, and Brad Tornberg is the driving force behind that innovation and incredible service.
Brad, understands what it takes to put together a collaborative technology team with the clients’ business team to develop a solution for a technology solution initiative. Brad is knowledgeable in the business of technology and how to manage complex projects to serve the clients. Strategic and tactical combination of looking to solve business problem through the sales cycle. He is respected in his ability to be trusted advisor in sales and balance the client relationship with account management and relationship building.
I developed a business relationship with Brad when I hired him as the Project Manger for an ERP implementation at five manufacturing facilities. He took over a project that was behind schedule and over budget. As a direct result of Brad’s leadership, we completed the implementation on schedule and under budget.
After the completion of this ERP implementation, we retained Brad to lead a second implementation project at another facility.
Brad is a dedicated and hardworking professional who embeds himself thoroughly in his project. He seeks to understand the infrastructure of our company as it encompasses all departments. This enables him to customize solutions practical to our exact application requirements. Brad has worked with us through several successful acquisitions. This is a testament to his work developing our cost accounting systems and and illustration of the value to our company as each new owner has retained his services.
Aztec Products has dealt with Brad Tornberg for over 15 years. Brad is that rare individual that can comfortably talk “geek speak” with IT professionals and ROI, benchmarking and process engineering with Management. He is enthusiastic, energetic, intelligent and personable. We call him whenever we have issues with our ERP system and have found him to be both responsive and flexible. We recommend Brad Tornberg highly.
Brad is a great person to work with. He has excellent project management skills and handles both customers and teams expectations very well. I looked to him as an issue resolver (if there is a term like that). Loved working with him.
I worked with Brad in the context of an ERP upgrade and Cost Accounting implementation at a discrete manufacturing business. Brad has a strong functional understanding of IT systems projects and required project governance processes. In addition, he understands how to leverage manufacturing ERP systems in a pragmatic way, ensuring that the project is focused on solving important business problems and not simply creating extra bureaucracy. I recommend Brad to anyone looking to address these issues at their business.
Brad demonstrated a combination of in-depth technical knowledge of the products he was assisting us in selecting as well as a high degree of operational knowledge that helped us consider the practical implications of our choices. He was also highly creative in developing solutions to some unique business requirements. His ability to communicate across all areas of the organization to help align the interests of both technical and user constituents was highly valuable. Lastly, he displayed a strong focus on creating and managing a budget.
