Working with Dave Broschinsky at Burton Group, and later Gartner, has been a great experience. In the 2.5 years that I have known him, he has been patient, generous, a fair supervisor, and a heck of a teacher and mentor. I credit Dave Broschinsky with everything I know about usability and design, including best practices, methods, assessments, and how to use cutting edge software tools. These usability and design skills helped me complete my Ph.D. thesis and land a tenure-track job at UNC-Chapel Hill. As a manager, Dave is kind, communicates expectations clearly, and provides constructive feedback on my work that helps me to grow my skills. His knowledge of usability is impressive, and he approaches the theory and practice of user experience design like a scholar; his analytical skills are evident in the papers he has presented and published in scholarly and professional venues. I recommend Dave, without reservation, for his managerial skill, usability and design expertise, mentorship, and all around good attitude.
