Eddie assisted one of my entities with ASK and it was done in an extremely professional manner. My team that worked with him mentioned that there was clear communication from him at all times and fast responses which is crucial especially at a time Sg is in circuit breaker mode. We completed the ASK in a timely manner and I got the assurance that my team had good controls in the scope of ASK. I would recommend Eddie / JED and would not hesitate to consider him in future work / projects.
