Recommendations are also available in Norman Reiss’ Nonprofit Bridge LinkedIn Profile. Below are a sampling of comments from past co-workers and managers:
I had the pleasure of supervising Norman Reiss during his tenure at Jewish Funds for Justice. Norman has excellent project management skills, a high degree of technical expertise and many good ideas that he shares .generously with colleagues. He is highly organized, accountable, and has a great work ethic – a professional in the best sense of the word.
Beyond his job related skills, Norman is enjoyable to work with, someone who has the balance and humor to keep things in perspective even when the workload is extreme. In our time together, he went out of his way to keep me informed and in the loop, and to explain technical aspects of his work that had important applications for my ability to manage our communications team. He often anticipated potential problems, with the result that they did not arise.
Norman is also very good at working with external vendors and service providers, keeping them on track and holding them accountable for deadlines. In addition, he is very “customer service” oriented with staff, someone who consistently reaches out across departments to ensure his colleagues are kept up to date and looped into the decision-making process about work relating to their programs and project goals.
I would highly recommend Norman for any position that requires technical project management in an environment where the ability to work well with others is prized.

Norman Reiss was a valued employee of our organization for several years. At the time he joined us, Cross-Cultural Solutions was a fledgling organization, facing new trials and tribulations each day. Norman single-handedly created and maintained our IT department. Instrumental in our growth, he established procedures for our computer systems, on-line marketing strategies and website management. His finance and business background gave insight into the global needs of the organization and allowed him to generate ideas that propelled us forward.
Norman is everything one would hope for in an employee. Reliable, meticulous, and committed to his work, he is an intelligent professional who communicates clearly with colleagues.
Without hesitation, I would highly recommend Norman to anyone considering him for employment. He is one of the most hard-working and knowledgeable team players I have ever worked with.
Steve Rosenthal, Executive Director, Cross-Cultural Solutions
Cross-Cultural Solutions will not be the same without you. Anytime I needed help, whether it was IT related or not, you were always willing to make time for me. It was such a pleasure working with you and I know you always brought a smile to our faces.
You always keep things running around here with such patience and grace. We really rely on you to get us through the day and your hard work and focus will be impossible to duplicate. Thank you for everything.
I want to express my gratitude for the unconditional support I have always gotten from you.
Whenever there was a question of connecting or getting some technology query answered, we always knew you would have all the answers for us. In your own quiet yet assuring way, you installed a sense of confidence.
Then say “I will take a look”
