Michael was in my direct employment from September 2001 until April 2003 working to complete the rollout of Active Directory and Windows 2000 Server upgrade to the complete global organization of Deutsche Bank. During this time, after his professional and successful progress on these projects, he was utilized on several other project such as server consolidation and lifecycle projects. Mr. Bettigole’s work initial on the project was demanding due to the diverse nature of the bank and the individual, sometimes completely segregated nature of the bank. Part of his role was to bring these different departments together to ensure a complete and uniform deployment across the bank. Michael’s excellent communication and management skills were pivotal to this task, making sure issues were not repeated across different geographies and different teams were properly educated. In the frantic days after the tragedy of September 11th in New York Michael kept his focus and assisted in the rebuilding efforts for the bank as well as keeping his current projects on track. Working with the different teams on this approach the team under his guidance was able to use the rebuilding efforts to accelerate deployment, saving both expense and valuable time. Situations like this come along and test our reactions under extreme pressures. This included fiscal, professional and emotional demands and Michael not only performed well but excelled and delivered to exceed everyone’s expectations. In the 18 months that Michael worked for me he showed that he was professional, resourceful and above all can be depended above to deliver on any task in any circumstance. He will be and is an asset to any organization that he is a part of.
