Tell us about yourself, what’s your background?

What do you like about working with Harvey Nash USA?
My initial contact with Harvey Nash was with Tom Wojtowicz. He’s got an amazing personality and has been great from the very beginning. I was always an FTE so I was a bit hesitant with contracting. We’ll, here we are 2+ years later and I must say, both Tom and Harvey Nash really do take the time to make sure you’re happy and successful. During my first year, I was really looking for better health benefits than what was being offered at the time and within a few months, Harvey Nash provided us with enhanced benefits for the upcoming open enrollment period. It truly shows that Harvey Nash has their contractors’ best interests at heart.
