Rena’s in-depth knowledge of websites and programming needs, combined with her reliability and consistency, earns my superior recommendation.
Working for Gil was a very smooth and fulfilling experience. The door to his office was always open and he greeted my sometimes-wacky ideas with true professionalism. Gil really allowed me to flourish in my role and maximize my potential contribution to the company while also teaching me a great deal about important issues such as SEO strategy. He is an excellent manager and certainly knows how to get the best out of people. I’d work for and with Gil again at any time in the future!
It was a pleasure working for Gil at Answers.com. He put together a Product Management dream team and guided it to achieve great things.
He combines strong strategic vision with deep technical knowledge. He considers all aspects of the business ( e.g. website, mobile, monetization, apps, tools, community, social, content, UGC, quality etc.), in order to specify the products needed. His developer background gives him the ability to consider implementation trade-offs and dive down into the fine details of the design.
He created a unique team atmosphere, where team members could work together, laugh together, and truly collaborate, each contributing their respective talents to maximum effect.
Gil is a wiz with analytics, user metrics and revenue reports, using them to identify issues and often trace back to their source. He has a deep knowledge of SEO and is a recognized expert, speaking at industry conferences around the world.
It was a pleasure working with Gil and I would be extremely happy to work with him again!
Gil took Answers.com forward in the world of SEO, positioning the site content to gain visibility and traction. He worked to cultivate relationships with key players in the SEO industry, often gaining insight that was later applied to the site.
As a leader, and as a person, Gil is creative and humble. His gears always turning, Gil is open to ideas from the most senior to the newest member of his team. He has that rare ability to detach from an invested position and adjust course when needed, without looking back. For our team, this attitude set a tone of trust, honesty and a welcomeness for thinking outside the box.
Gil’s encouraging approach was not limited to the office; he also shared his knowledge with the search community at large, speaking at conferences around the world and blogging about management or SEO.
Always ready with a laugh, and the fastest speaker I’ve ever met, Gil was an excellent manager who recognized the abilities of his team and enabled us to do what we do best without interfering. I look forward to working with him again one day.
Gil is a terrific pro and when it comes to SEO/SEM and everything Internet, he’s the man. It’s also always a pleasure to work with him.
I have the utmost respect for Gil. I first worked with him at Answers.com, while integrating WikiAnswers. Now that I’m working on a new site, WikiTree, I wanted his help again. I’m very pleased with the help he gave me and look forward to working with him again.
