Overview

It's been said that some people dream of worthy accomplishments, while others get them done.

My name is Reed Critchfield. Throughout my career, I have always been someone who got it done.

As a retired military officer with 27 years of leadership experience along with several years of management consulting and business experience, i bring a dearth of quality, relevant, sophisticated capability to the table.
