"As a former COO with Innovative Objects, Chris was my right hand man when it came to improving our IT capabilities there. Together we built a stellar team that was able to construct and manage a Tier 3 data center. The IT team, under Chris' leadership, was able to remotely migrate the data for one of FTC's landmark cases.
Chris embraced my focus on lean management principles and he implemented control measures to improve our IT operations in a short amount of time.
Chris' drive to provide the best customer service is one of his greatest attributes. I sincerely enjoyed our professional relationship at Innovative Objects. I would not hesitate to work with Chris again in the future. A true asset.

There was never a no answer given by Chris. He found a way to solve any problem given him. He is a true professional in every means.

Any company would be lucky to have such a true professional as part of their company. He is a true asset."

He can be strong willed at times but that is what you want on your side, someone who is working with you and for you. I was glad to be a member of his team."
"Chris is an extremely talented individual. When trouble occurred with a database, the sever one resided on, or even software/servers that maybe only remotely touched the databases, Chris would always be there to step in and give his all to get the issue resolved. He was instrumental in maintaining and improving our databases that we have greater confidence in them.
Chris also took charge of handling and improving software deployments from Watco's programmers into the DEV, QA and PRD environments. By doing so he considerably improved the consistency of these deployments, and implemented better version controls.
After taking on his previous responsibilities at Watco, I've found first hand that the documentation he created over time was clear and concise on how to handle the various tasks he had to do. He has also done considerable work to improve and automate the processes involved that it's helped simplify the process further insuring the consistency of the deployments."

"Chris was a pleasure to work with during his time with our company. He was highly intelligent, a quick study and an excellent problem solver with the ability to think "outside of the box". We often have tight, overlapping deadlines and Chris was always there to help, often after hours and on weekends if necessary. His positivity rarely waivered, even during times of extreme adversity (Chris experienced first-hand the EF5 tornado that struck Joplin, Missouri in 2011, and was also a member of emergency response team during its aftermath). Chris was missed as a member of our development team when he elected to pursue his passion to become a police officer. I would not hesitate to recommend Chris for any endeavor he chooses to undertake."
"I worked with Chris for over a year, and to this day I can say he is the most talented person I have ever had the pleasure of working with. His wide range of expertise is astounding.

Further, his abilities transcend both hardware, firmware and software/programs.......but ties them all together. He is exempelary."
"Chris did pro bono work creating a website for a non-profit group that I volunteer with. He was so helpful, putting in lots of time, during a very busy time at work."
"Chris Corbett is very fast at getting things done. He constantly developed new ways to make our work easier. For example we had a big problem in sending out licensed software copies as prizes and when development could not help us Chris took matters in his own hands and developed one of the best applications I have ever seen. As a result our work efficiency increased immensely. Great guy to work with. Highly recommended!"
