“Carlos Placido has a natural aptitude for highly technical communications and application solutions building. While I was responsible for all TDMA ground and space segment infrastructure at Intelsat, I had to rely on my technical support staff for highly granular planning, specifications design, evaluating, testing, and tweaking of communications infrastructure. Under tight deadlines and budgets, this was made easy by Carlos, who worked relentlessly on fostering innovative solutions that emerged through his unique practical experience in integrating hardware, software and middleware technologies for global organizations. Most impressive of all, was the shrewd demeanor that Carlos portrayed in assisting us to understand the possible functionality and service paradigm required in our go-to-market strategy of penetrating the up and coming enterprise, remote-services and critical-applications market verticals.”

“Carlos Placido has excellent skills for the design and management of complex telecom infrastructure projects. In the mid 1990′s when Carlos worked as a specialist engineer with Telintar (Argentina’s international carrier) I had the chance to work with him on infrastructure investment projects for the Bosque Alegre Earth Station, one of the main international gateways of Argentina. We worked together on the installation of 11mt (Std.B) and 16-mt (Std.A) earth stations , TDMA terminal, mobile station for international telecommunications and transmission equipment upgrades such as modems, and frequency converters. Carlos not only completed these projects successfully but he also introduced positive changes by persuading our staff to accept and adapt to changes taking place with new equipment and better performing systems. Despite him being so young at that time, Carlos was able to gain the respect of senior engineers and operators, who still remember him. “
