""My experience as Past CFO of Radi with Steve McCready was outstanding. His knowledge & expertise added value. By actively managing the client relationship he was attentive to the business needs, focusing on accomplishing specifically what was asked, or pointing out items which were critical to address. I value Steves opinion and professional relationship and would recommend him unconditionally." ~ John Sasso, Medical Device Product Development & Commercialization Consultant at Sasso Solutions"
""Steve and I worked together during a difficult phase of the company’s history in various capacities, and I ultimately had the pleasure of working with him in a corporate litigation matter. Steve primarily acted in the capacity of in-house counsel while managing an outside firm during the proceedings. Steve brought his expertise, experience, and knowledge to everything he did. I never felt more comfortable than when Steve was steering the ship and making confident course corrections while providing excellent leadership, and thoughtful guidance to all. Steve brought a sense of competency to his role and was well respected by all. Lastly, I would add that I have a personal respect for Steve and in very many cases came to rely on his expertise, knowledge, and common sense to handle some very difficult situations. Steve is conscientious, self directed, and able to work well under pressure, and I am consistently impressed by his work ethic, great drive, and passion for his work. I know Steve to be a hard worker with an excellent reputation and would invite any opportunity to work with him again in some similar capacity at anytime in the future." ~ Bob Kellegrew, Vice President & General Counsel at Stratus Technologies, Inc."
