Roger Baxter has provided consultant services to our department of Printing Services since July of 1996. During that time we have found him to be thorough, precise, and accurate in his findings regarding our operations, efficiency, and finances. Following his recommendations has made a significant improvement in both the operations and profitability of the service.

I recommend Mr. Baxter to you without reservation or qualification of any kind. He will prove to be an asset to your organization with his extremely professional consultancy.

If you would like to discuss Mr. Baxter's qualification or our experience with him here at Wake Forest, I will be delighted to talk with you. - 1996

Great job in [organization and planning]. Leadership and communications [are] above average. Knowledge, creativity, adaptability, attitude, sense of urgency, and sense of proprietorship [all rate] exceptional merit. I'm glad to have Roger as Plant Manager. - 1985

I have begun asking Roger to be present whenever I'm reviewing photo tab color proofs with the designers. I've found his input on color very valuable and he has caught things I haven't looked for previously or has given more accurate solutions to color problems. ... I feel he's invaluable at this stage of the game, since he has experience looking at [proofs]. After using his schedules constantly I've found I depend on them all the time now and feel quite comfortable with them. It's nice not having to fill out a calendar for the whole group to follow, they use the schedules too. - 1988
