Jose Luis Velasquez

Senior VP HR | Heineken USA

Paul worked as part of my team at Heineken USA first as a Business Partner for our Marketing and Corporate functions, and then as the head of OD & Talent Management. 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 commercial impact. He was well respected by our senior management team and worked closely with us in our talent identification and succession planning efforts.

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.

Alison DeMille

CHRO | McCain Foods Limited

I worked with Paul when we were together at Gap Inc. Canada back in the early 2000's. 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 human resources). Paul is smart, fun, thoughtful, practical and strives to drive business results and performance.

Elana Gold

Divisional Vice President (CMO) | Abbott Nutrition

Andrea and I have worked together building the international division of the 2nd fastest growing brand in the US – Sabra. Together we opened two markets – Mexico and Australia and with the help of Andrea created a wonderful culture. The highest professional compliment that I can pay Andrea is when she would leave one of the markets – the GM's would automatically ask her "when are you coming back." At the HQ's she had the same impact – always being available as a strategic partner to the business.

Scott Wambolt

SVP | National Sales and Service at CIBC

Paul served my organizations HR requirements at YPG and did a fantastic job. He could always be counted on to offer insightful, practical and results oriented HR advice. He is personable, articulate, highly ethical has high business acumen, and abhors company politics all making him an extremely competent and effective HR executive. I would welcome the opportunity to work with Paul again.

I had the opportunity to work with Andrea in my last role as we were establishing the PepsiCo Strauss Fresh Dips & Spreads International JV in Australia and Mexico. Andrea is a dedicated, collaborative, enthusiastic and fun colleague 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. She was also on the ground leading post merger integration efforts and working closely with the employees. Her energy and experience would be valuable to any organization she chooses to work with.

Brenda Rigney

VP, PINK OPS | Nurse Next Door

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. An example of this is when Paul launched the vision, mission and culture plans for the Old Navy Distribution Centre. He was able to engage his audience quickly and build a unified approach to productivity at the DC quickly.

Kathy MacLeod

VP, HR & PMO | CBV Collection Services Ltd

I had the pleasure of working with Andrea for almost 5 years. Andrea joined CBV during a time of transition and reinvented HR for us, laying the groundwork for what it has become today. She created a vision and made it a reality, implementing HR positions across our offices and formalizing our policies and procedures in a manner that was effective, efficient and functional. Above all, 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 CBV team. I highly recommend Andrea to any organization seeking an experienced HR professional who will take them to the next level in HR Management

Louis Bellardine

HR Executive | School District of Philadelphia

I have worked with Paul for over 8 years at Columbia University. First as a peer and then as his manager. Paul has accomplished many exciting projects at Columbia through his collaborative nature, excellent project management skills and superior OD experience. Paul was an excellent team player as well as an excellent manager. His combination of HR skills coupled with exceptional business acumen would make him a valuable employee in any organization. I would not hesitate to hire Paul again if I have the opportunity to do so.

Aaron Robins

CEO | IRSC Integrated Recovery Solutions

Andrea was without doubt the most effective, knowledgeable and professional HR Director I have ever worked alongside. Her advice, experience, ideas and general approach to directing "the human factor" in an intensely challenging industry was balanced and people focused but always with the bottom line in mind. At CBV, Andrea was tasked with creating the HR department from the ground up in an already large company. The processes, strategies and people she put in place created stability and strength from which to further build what is now a highly successful organization. Andrea was the ultimate professional and would without hesitation recommend her to any client looking to create or strengthen their HR vertical.

Timothy Price

Director Compensation | Genentech

Paul and I worked side by side for 8 years. He is a fantastic colleague, business partner, leader and manager. I have always been impressed by his innate sense of teamwork, project management skills, superior HR knowledge, and ability to inspire and lead a team. What has impressed me the most about Paul over the years, however, is that he's an HR leader with amazing business acumen and focus. He delivers creative, innovative OD and Learning programs with careful attention to the overall alignment with the department goals and 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 delivery of HR services.

Daniela Aviran

Director of Compensation | Strauss Group Inc.

Andrea is a talented, enthusiastic, sharp and proactive HR Leader. During the first staged of designing the company's HR strategy she led a team of professionals in different disciplines and different parent companies to work harmoniously and productively. Thanks to her efforts the HR team gathered for this project from different geographies, companies and disciplines managed to design a winning HR strategy for a new company, and get approved, and appreciated, by senior management and Board of Directors. Andrea demonstrated, all through the way, team spirit, proactive approach, responsibility and accountability, and mostly: high professionalism.
