Senior VP HR

Paul is an extremely skilled HR professional who added tremendous value to our organization. Paul quickly learned our business, and was able to identify and drive HR solutions that had a positive impact. He was well respected by our senior team and worked closely with us in our talent and succession planning efforts.

Divisional Vice President (CMO)

Andrea and I worked together to open Mexico and Australia. The highest professional compliment that I can pay Andrea is when she would leave one of the markets – GM's would automatically ask her "when are you coming back." At HQ's she had the same impact – always being available as a strategic partner to the business.

SVP National Sales and Service

Paul can always be counted on to offer insightful, practical and results oriented HR advice. He is personable, articulate, highly ethical and has high business acumen, all making him an extremely competent and effective HR executive. I would welcome the opportunity to work with Paul again.

General Manager

Andrea is a very strong International HR specialist. Andrea supported me during the setup of a green field operation in México defining the HR strategy for the Pepsico-Strauss JV. Andrea understanding of the Mexican labor market as well as her cultural savvy was critical to attract the right talent under strong people processes.


Paul is one of the very best HR professionals I have ever worked with. He has broad range--HR technical skills from high level organization development to change management to leadership and management development skills. He also has great influence with an incredible sense for innovation and resourcefulness. He is A++.

VP Finance

Andrea is dedicated, collaborative, enthusiastic and fun to work with. She is a solid HR professional with a breadth of experience, that makes her comfortable working on organizational capabilities, values and culture. Her energy and experience would be valuable to any organization she chooses to work with.

VP, Operations

Paul is a creative thinker and is never satisfied with common practice or status quo. He researches the best options and pushes his knowledge base to provide the best service to his customer. He continually exceeds his contribution to any organization he serves by building effective relationships with key leaders in the business.


Andrea is equipped with high intelligence and deep understanding of "what makes people function". She is fast learner, experienced and pragmatic– a combination that helps her to understand the business and adds value in short time. Her personality along with her collaboration capabilities enable her to connect with people.

Senior Director Compensation

What impressed me the most about Paul is his amazing business acumen and focus. He delivers innovative OD and learning programs with careful attention to overall alignment with the needs of the business, never losing sight of the ROI. Paul would be a tremendous asset to any organization that cares about best-in-class HR services.


Andrea's personal touch was a constant reminder to never forget the "human" side of HR. Her upbeat, cheerful, knowledgeable and professional approach to business left a lasting impression on the team. I highly recommend Andrea to any organization seeking an experienced professional who will take them to the next level in HR.


Paul has great experience as both an HR generalist and as a talent/OD specialist. And, because he has both, tends to be very good as a generalist (because he gets talent and development) and as an OD specialist (because he understands HR). Paul is smart, fun, thoughtful, practical and strives to drive business results and performance.


Andrea was without doubt the most effective and knowledgeable HR professional I have ever worked with. Her advice, experience and ideas to directing "the human factor" was people focused but always with the bottom line in mind. I would without hesitation recommend her to any client looking to create or strengthen their HR vertical.

Director HR

Paul is an expert in all facets of HR from his experience in start-up to his work in turning around businesses that are struggling. He shines in strategic planning, executive coaching, succession planning and change management. Combined with his extensive business acumen from a number of industries, he is an exceptionally rare talent.

Director of Compensation

Andrea is a talented, enthusiastic and proactive HR Leader. During the first stages of designing the company's HR strategy she led a cross-functional team to work harmoniously and productively. Thanks to her efforts the team managed to design a winning HR strategy for a new company and get it approved by the Board of Directors.

HR Executive

Paul has accomplished many exciting projects through his collaborative nature, excellent project management skills and superior OD experience. His combination of HR skills coupled with exceptional business acumen would make him a valuable to any organization. I would not hesitate to work with Paul again.
