David is very knowledgeable and experienced in metallurgy and failure analysis. Plus, he has experience in operating plants. David drills down into the root cause and offers practical recommendations for corrective actions. I have used The Hendrix Group for a number of analyses and have been pleased with the results.

I worked David for development of Corrosion Control Documents for a Refinery here in India. We ran into a few problems with the schedule and data requirements considering the age of the Unit. David conducted a Corrosion workshop at the client site and was able to deliver the Corrosion Control Documents without any delay. David would not allow any compromises on the quality of the delivery and stressed a lot on organizing the work. His in depth knowledge of the subject enabled us to foresee potential issues and come up with effective resolutions. He is a strong believer in knowledge sharing and can be an excellent mentor. Last but not the least, his cool temperament helped us convert a "red hot" client to a satisfied customer.

I've known David for two months. We are associated with each other for a project on CCD for an Indian client. The first and foremost attribute of David is the confident way he approaches the project. The project in which I was involved with him was a very tightly scheduled one, but his approach was remarkable. He can stand on his feet and deliver in front of the client which shows his depth in technical knowledge. Also, to mention is the quality of his report. It is very detailed and contains a lot of process and operating parameters. I should also comment on his amicable sense of humor, which enables him to make any tense environment into a pretty light one. We hope to work on future projects too.
