Nice guy, no doubt. Wishing him luck as well. However, truth be told, NetX 360 was already fully formed platform by the time he came onboard. Netx360 was already old news with complete roll-out by November 2010. It is way too easy to claim credit for something if your position is high enough. Let’s admit that his focus was on exploring Manhattan and not to “..determine strategy for the firm’s NetX360 platform”.
