I had the pleasure to work with Edwin on an international software (re-)development project, which meant that most work had to be delivered in Adelaide. For me in those days it was important to have a couple of dedicated, single and seriously hard working project members in a mainly OZ-based team to do the job for the customer. Edwin showed the right spirit and attitude: hard working, knowledgeable on both customer value and business dependencies, strategically and tactically strongly acting in a multicultural development team with high business impact. I can imagine that some hate to see Edwin go to Australia. On the flip side of the coin, Australia will welcome him for that same reason; he’s a very kind, professional to work with!
