They consistently perform with integrity and credibility at the forefront. I was continually impressed with their attention to detail and response time.
PAUL FIORAVANTI, CEO & MANAGING PARTNER QORVAL
I’ve known Joe Tassone and his company for several years. On three occasions in three industries, I brought Joe’s company in to provide specialized energy project management consulting and services. One company, a global group of contract pharmaceutical manufacturing companies, needed objective assessment of renewable energy project options to curtail energy costs; another, a specialized automotive industry manufacturer and supplier, needed project coordination and contractor recommendations to manage the bidding process for a solar renewable project; a third, a telecommunications company, relied on onCORE to deliver specialized site acquisition, real estate, zoning and other services related to identifying new wireless communications cell site and renewable solar energy array development and construction. Joe is one of the hardest working professionals I’ve had the good fortune to interface with, and he has a deserved reputation for honesty, integrity, and passion for bringing the best outcomes to all of the stakeholders on a project. I wholeheartedly recommend Joe and onCORE for any challenge they wish to be considered for.
