Christine worked with John in different groups
I worked with John Fitzpatrick for more than 5 years at ABB/Power-One. I have the highest regard for his technical ability to access data as well as his business acumen and interpersonal skills which enable him to first understand the required information and then present the appropriate data to each level of the organization. He is particularly talented in programming and data mining across multiple business systems and self-directed to learn and master each new platform he encounters.
John created many reports for the operations, quality and financial teams at ABB/Power-One, from data entry personnel to business processes managers and executive leadership, providing timely information enabling people to make tactical and strategic business decisions. I personally used several reports on a daily basis that John worked with me to develop, providing real-time data to my team, trend charts to leadership, and customized summary reports to our Key Accounts. I highly recommend John without hesitation.

John is a very detail oriented Quality Specialist. Often he is able to mine and make sense of data that others simply can not understand. Not only is he good in Quality, he also is very good with computers. The guy has computer skills that allow him to compete with any IT Specialist and win easily. He unique skills mix of understanding Quality & computer skills make him a good, strong, asset to any organization he chooses to work for. I definitely recommend him for any job that requires real analytical and and IT talent.

John worked with Reid Burger in the same group
John is a very dedicated business professional with a wealth of knowledge in many aspects of running an organization. He never stops learning and is always thinking ten steps ahead. John is consistently looking out for what is best for the organization and how he can personally help the efficiency of the business. I cannot even count how many different systems John knows how to gather, transform, and present crucial business data and metrics. He is an asset to any organization that is looking to see the big picture and look ahead to a world class level company.
John worked for me nearly three years with responsibility to set up business automation solutions to track customer quality and warranty returns. He did a remarkable job establishing data mining tools for big dataset (RMA, customer, SO, Quality, Production) develop data into information with simple real time reporting automation. As a result business optimization was possible by understanding interactions between disparate big data sets (product return warranty, production traceability, Customer install base /application, Product design and product life cycle costs )
Very strong work ethic, excellent team player and has tenacious drive to accomplish nearly impossible projects. John always took the technical and administrative lead to work cross functionally and cross culturally for global projects.
Highly recommend for unusual and difficult projects

John is a highly capable, knowledgable person, and bright individual/extremely quick study. Coupled with his desire to be excellent at whatever he does, he is a self-taught master of various competancies that he needed to become fluent in doing his Administrative Officer and Operations Officer functions while at CHINHAE.
I had the benefit of serving with him in both capacities. In both capacities he set the bar extremely high. His willingness to work late nights to produce extroidinary results shows his desire to produce high quality outcomes. In addition to this, John is a warm and personable high quality individual balanced with care/compassion you can see he takes the time to think through issues and problems to understand complex problems in their entirety. This is a delicate balance and wisdom required when handling high volume and critical problems, but should be as the outcomes could be far reaching.
In general, I would recommend John in whatever endeavor he chooses because he will seek the skills, if he doesn’t already have them, to be the best. Admidst being the best, he is willing to train and mentor those along the way, thus attesting to his leadership skills and ability to lead by example.
