References for Joshua Hughes

Joshua is the model of an employee who simply gets the job done. He is a self-starter who continually educates himself to ensure he has the tools necessary to compete projects and to be effective. Joshua never said no to a task and embraced our fast-paced environment. The documentation that I received from Joshua was always complete, thoughtful, and detailed; I never returned to him for deeper clarification. While working with my team he was a 99% remote employee and never once did I ever have any issues with his work or availability; often he went above and beyond my expectations. I would consider Joshua an innovator in his field as he was always seeking to accomplish tasks the most correct way.

Given the opportunity I would hire Joshua again as a Magento developer without a second thought.

Joshua has performed freelance work on a regular basis for us during the last couple of years. He is our go to person for helping us troubleshoot a variety of web / eCommerce related issues that are beyond our scope. He also conducts site audits and optimization, as needed. He is a straight forward and clear communicator. His response time is commensurate with the urgency of the issue at hand and we have been happy with our ongoing partnership.

When Joshua arrived, the business was in need of a lot of attention. It was losing money, was under capitalized, and staff were in roles for which they were not best suited. Joshua showed great leadership and tact in dealing with critical and culturally sensitive issues. Through his direction the company is now in a much stronger position.

Joshua was responsible for the financial well-being of the company and was therefore responsible for getting all the accounting and financial statements in order. After initially analyzing the financial situation, Joshua plotted a course forward to stabilize the company. He rearranged departments and had to make tough decisions on where to cut costs and where to invest time and resources. Even through some difficult decisions, include some pay cuts, he was able to keep his staff motivated and committed to the goals of the company.

An area that Joshua invested in was marketing the company. Joshua analyzed the local and international markets and found areas and products he thought would be most beneficial to focus marketing efforts. In addition to finding new business he was able to save working relationships with some major clients who had become dissatisfied prior to Joshua’s arrival. He was able to negotiate new contracts that were both beneficial to the company and client.

There are many details and examples that I could site showing how impressed I am with Joshua’s business abilities. He has done a lot to turn around a struggling company and I am thankful for his leadership.

Josh uses a “top down” logical and creative approach to tackle projects while using his time efficiently. He consistently beat deadlines and streamlined all aspects of his job, projects, and did a great job of communicating with co-workers. One of his biggest assets was the ability to take ideals that were presented to him and put them into whatever form was requested with minimal wasted time.

Joshua is one of the most engaging superiors I have ever had. Joshua has sound logic, a sharp business mind, the ability to think outside the norm, and the wherewithal to bring those traits together seamlessly in a creative manner. Furthermore, Joshua explains his thinking and reasoning to clients, superiors, and subordinates alike in a way that is professional and caters to their different levels of knowledge according to the subject matter at hand without appearing condescending, which is a rare talent. Joshua has the type of personality and mind that adds value wherever he goes; he is a great addition to any organization, and I see only success in his future.

I have worked with Joshua Hughes quite closely, although for a short time, which I regret, as Joshua has been a very committed, loyal, capable and hard-working colleague. He is able to work independently and at the same time as a team-player. He has shown ability to lead and motivate a team of people, and to improve the structures of the company he has been leading as Managing Director.

Joshua has done a great job for us. We just opened a second tasting room in Sausalito and I wrote down the wrong date that I scheduled Josh to come in and get us hooked up and running. The appointment was for the following week, I called him and told him it was an emergency. He dropped everything to get us running in record time. Great customer service, fair pricing and everything works; I highly recommend Joshua!

Joshua has been great to work with. He is very organized, has great ideas, and is a person of high integrity. With Joshua as the Managing Director, I saw great improvements in our dealings with Road9 Media and in the quality of the magazine (Maadi Messenger) we published.
