“Bruce is an extraordinary human resources professional with deep knowledge in regulatory compliance, facilities management, and purchasing, among just a few examples of his experience. He has worked with many different industries in many parts of the country developing an expertise that is unsurpassed. I have worked with Bruce for 15 years on complex and significant internal matters, litigation (including class action), and regulatory compliance issues. He is an expert strategist with uncanny judgment and ability to execute while maintaining his professionalism at all times. He delegates and manages effectively while understanding how to inspire others to achieve the company’s goals. In sum, Bruce facilitates business effectively and efficiently.”

“I had the pleasure of working with Bruce on a tricky wage & hour class action matter, where I was the outside counsel, and Bruce was the Senior Vice President, Corporate Services, of the company I was representing. To put it simply, Bruce was an invaluable resource throughout the representation. He was a double threat — his law degree gave him an appreciation of where we, as outside counsel, were coming from, and he excelled at liaising with company representatives for us so that we could do our work. Sometimes, it is difficult to bridge the divide between counsel and the rank and file employees, but Bruce did just that. He is just as effective at conversing with them as he is with high-level executives. He also possesses an uncommon emotional intelligence and savvy that I believe allows him to cut right to the heart of any internal company matter presented to him to help solve whatever personnel problem a company might have. Any company consulting with Bruce is very fortunate to do so.”
Matthew Ball, Esq. Litigation Partner at K&L Gates (Representing Defendants in Consumer and Class Action Litigation)
Bruce performed an investigation, which was highly charged and very disruptive to the organization. Through his professional demeanor, thoroughness and attention to detail, he quickly grasped the situation and was able to resolve the complaint thoroughly with the claimant and their attorney and protect the organization from further liability. In addition, Bruce provided the necessary executive guidance to resolve all outstanding issues and guide the executive team to improve organizational morale and productivity.
For seven years Bruce supported me as the head of HR, plus he was the Compliance Officer for our board of directors. During this time he helped our organization build for our global growth and expansion in Asia and Canada. Part of his success was the high quality support team he built and managed in Asia. Additionally he handled the rapid growth of our expansions in Texas and Southern California and acted as a liaison to our new subsidiaries. I expanded Bruce’s role to provide support to our board which he handled in a very professional and effective manner. Bruce has excellent communication skills and was able to effectively and successfully work within a multitude of cultures.
During the time that I was responsible for the HR APAC region (China, Taiwan, Japan and Korea) for Bruce, he provided me with the leadership, insight and vision to grow my team into an effective partner in support of our internal and external customers. He brought solid hands-on global experience, great follow through and a strong desire that for us to be successful, our customers first must be successful. Although Bruce was located in the US he never failed to respond to requests for support or in addressing our human capital issues in a timely and efficient manner.
