"Hands down, Tony is one of the smartest, most talented people I've ever worked with. An incredible innovator in the digital space, he is sharp, creative and passionate in everything he does. Hilarious, too! His clarity of vision and his ability to articulate it are truly inspiring and foster a focused enthusiasm that's wonderfully contagious. Every project he touches, big or small, is not only brilliantly conceived but brilliantly executed. I feel so fortunate to have worked under Tony's mentorship for four years at Nickelodeon, and would literally (literally!) jump at the chance to work with him again"
"Tony is that rare example of a leader who can not only manage people to get a job done, but inspire them to do it better than anyone else. Under his leadership and vision, our group at The N built a lasting reputation within MTV Networks as a greenhouse of innovation, and a site that much bigger brands within the company are still trying to emulate. It was an honor to be a part of that, to work for Tony, collaborate with him, and learn from him."
"i often use the word "genius" when i talk about tony. he is rare and real talent. his work has won emmys and precipitated an analyst to give a "buy' recommendation for viacom after a stellar digital upfront presentation a couple of years back. his track record is a litany of innovation and success in creating tools and building communities that lead to growth of businesses he worked on, and business leadership opportunities on his part. and he's a high-scoring, ruthless scrabble player - what else is there?"
