Ray is one of the hardest working, intelligent and considerate people I've ever worked with. He has my highest recommendation based on his dedication and ability.” October 23, 2008

-Jason Calacanis, CEO & Founder, Inc.
managed Ray at Mahalo

"People like Ray are the reason companies succeed. He is dedicated, passionate and has an incredible work ethic. At Ayzenberg, he has done social media engagement for our biggest clients including EA, Yahoo and more. He is an expert at understanding how to use social media to engage brand customers and advocates in meaningful conversations and ensure their experience with the brand is second to none. He has been a huge asset to our team for more than 2 1/2 years and I would highly recommend him for any social media engagement or community management position."

- Rebecca Markarian Social Media Marketing and Communications Specialist at Ayzenberg Group

"Ray is a born leader. Both the community and the other staff just 'want' to work with him and for him. I was extremely fortunate to have a truly passionate leader like Ray on such important community assignments. I'll absolutely look to Ray again if given the opportunity."

-Keith Pape Social & Emerging Media Digital Agency Executive, Speaker, Writer

“Ray was a truly amazing employee. Again and again he surpassed impossible goals. 'Above and beyond' does not even do justice to the effort that Ray put into his job. One of the truly great and incredible people I have had the rare privilege to work with. Anyone who gets him gets a huge and very serious winner. Ray was one of the heroes of Mahalo. I was personally very sorry to see him go. I would hire him back again in a heartbeat.” October 23, 2008

-Mark JeffreyCTO,, Inc.
managed Ray indirectly at Mahalo

" I have been Ray's immediate supervisor for several years. I found him to be consistently pleasant, tackling all assignments with dedication and a smile.
Besides being a joy to work with, Ray is a hard charging and reliable employee, he is dependable and always willing to help and take on assignments. He has successfully developed several social marketing plans for our company that have resulted in increased brand visibility. During his tenure, we saw an increase in Facebook, Twitter and other social media branding that is directly attributed to Ray. Though he was an asset to our social marketing efforts, Ray was also extraordinarily helpful in other areas of the company. He was our main blogger, he maintained the company corporate blog, and he also selected content and helped maintain many of our websites. I highly recommend Ray for employment. He is a team player and would make a great asset to any organization. "

- Matthew Campos, IT & Operations Manager, Kingdom WWW Operations, Inc

“Ray Manukay is a hard-working and dedicated person. During my time as Editorial Director of Mahalo, Ray was one of the most prolific Guides reporting to me, producing more pages per day than anyone else on staff. In the early days of Mahalo, he was the first employee to build over 1,000 pages on the site and, if I remember correctly, he hit that record when we were only 12,000 pages strong. Ray is adept at internet research, keeps his head down, avoids distraction, and knocks out good work fast.” October 23, 2008

-C.K. Sample III, Editorial Director,, Inc
managed Ray at Mahalo

“Ray is the hardest-working person I have ever met. He is a dedicated and intensely loyal employee. If he's given a new, more difficult goal to achieve, he'll do it - quietly and subtly. He's not a glory-hound, and he's not one of those people who flaunts how much they're working to try to score points. He's unobtrusive about his hard work, but it shows in his amazing productivity. He's the epitome of the strong, silent type, a rock that you can build a team around.” October 22, 2008

-Nicole Gustas, Lead Guide, Mahalo

“Ray is one of the best mannered and hardest working people in our organization, which would be a feat in itself, except that Ray also manages to do this while being the most liked person in our organization. Truly a rare and special talent. I would recommend Ray to any friend, family, colleague, etc wholeheartedly and without reservation. Ray is the kind of person who when he wins employee of the month, everyone cheers.” October 22, 2008

-Tyler Crowley, Director of Marketing and Strategy, Mahalo
managed Ray indirectly at Mahalo

“I had the privilege of working in the same office space with Ray during his time at Mahalo, and being able to see him work firsthand. To say that he was hardworking and reliable doesn't do him justice. There was rarely something going on that Ray wasn't involved in and supporting. He helped grow Mahalo, especially during the crucial first year, to immense heights. Ray is an extremely valuable commodity to anyone looking for someone they can rely on, and not have to worry about whether or not the job is getting done.” October 22, 2008

-Ryan Budke, Programming Manager, AOL
was with another company when working with Ray at Mahalo

“Ray was always a blast to work with, he tirelessly produces high quality work no matter how challenging the work environment may be. Once he told me how he rushed into a burning building to save a family, on a scale of 1 to 10, he is certainly a 7 or better, hell he is a 11.” October 23, 2008

“Ray Manukay is one of the most efficient workers I have ever met. He is very focused and capable of adapting to constantly changing goals. If I ever find myself looking for employees, Ray will be one of the first people I contact.” October 28, 2008

-Mike Rhoads , Guide , Inc

“I worked with Ray at Mahalo for nearly two years. During that time his dedication never flagged, his work was of the highest quality, and everyone in the office enjoyed working with him. Any company would be fortunate to have him on their team.” October 26, 2008

“I can't even begin to say enough about Ray, so I won't even try (there isn't enough room on this page). I would like to second everything that has been said in his recommendations. Not only was Ray THE MOST productive person at Mahalo over its first year of existence, his work was consistently high quality and his professional demeanor and ethic was impeccable. If there is any justice in this world, Ray will be running this country in eight years. Mark my words.” October 25, 2008
