“I founded DA&R to break the traditional mold of consulting firms having a ‘beach’ or ‘bench’ of employees that they seek to place on projects -- sometimes with iffy results. Our consultants are all contractors that we have either worked with or a trusted associate has worked with. We do not have a pool of people that we have to place… Every DA&R consultant we place is the right person, at the right time, at the right rate!”
