To Whom It May Concern:
I am the Director of Information Systems for NBBJ Architecture and Design Planning and am responsible for technology globally for our international design firm. I hired Paul as a web developer almost five years ago. Paul’s leaving NBBJ is 100% a budgetary issue. I would hire Paul back without a moment’s hesitation should the financial situation afford that opportunity.

Paul is creative, collaborative and absolutely loves a new challenge. He loves to learn and is an excellent self starter and will take it upon himself to learn what he may not know about a tool. He has developed many web enabled interfaces and applications for us, with some even being recognized by external business partners. Paul always brings his own originality to his projects, better ways of doing things, and always responds quickly and innovatively to requests.

I would recommend Paul Ihrig to any organization who is looking for a loyal, dedicated and bright individual who knows how to be a team player. Please feel free to contact me with any questions about Paul’s abilities and contributions to our organization over the years. I can be reached at 614.232.3068 or via e-mail at
