"I found Tom to have the expertise, the intellectual grasp, the aggressiveness and the drive that I witnessed among Georgia Tech's top IT staff. As I got to know him better, these perceptions were repeatedly reinforced. Time and time again, Tom was appointed to lead new initiatives because he could be counted on to bring projects in on time and within budget. He brought creativity and insight to planning."

"I have had the privilege of working with Tom Reid and Reid Consulting Group since December 2008 on the Connecting Appalachia middle-mile broadband project which resulted in a $66 million investment from the US Department of Commerce, National Telecommunications and Information Administration and $28 million from Horizon to develop a state-of-the-art middle mile fiber optic network in 34 counties of Ohio.

Through my experience with Reid Consulting Group, I have found them to be very inclusive of multiple parties on decisions and an ability to get those multiple parties working with one another for the betterment of all involved. They were also able to present information about a highly technical and complex subject such as broadband so that a novice could understand it."
