Andrea's previous work experience includes senior level HR roles in world recognized organizations:
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
