Victor Assad has worked with us to integrate state-of-the art digital technology and to align our work process with the new technology.  The result has been improved employee training, work processes and sales.

Victor Assad brought invaluable experience from a solid corporate legacy position to help me better understand the US environment and the challenges I would face when making investment decisions on optimizing my customer-facing organization to execute on my company’s commercialization strategy.

In an easy approach and highly collaborative manner he proactively developed tangible solutions to issues such as ‘healthcare compliance’, ‘pay and commission structures’ and ‘recruitment policies’ that I faced as I developed the sales organization.

Victor excels at grasping the complexities of a specific situation and then applying his experience to bring solutions that are simple to understand and to implement.

I would strongly recommend Victor as somebody who would add value to a leadership team eager to bring a fresh insight to their sales organization or as someone to give pragmatic guidance to an executive working through a specific HR related challenge.

Vic is a strategic HR leader with a deep and broad understanding of HR and a strong business acumen. He is very good at aligning HR strategies to business imperatives, as well as developing and driving creative programs and change initiatives that truly have an impact on the business and talent. I partnered with our sales organization, and Vic offered good advice on how to maximize the performance of sales with employee engagement, compensation, and talent management efforts.

Victor is the consummate professional and provided outstanding leadership related to all aspects of human resources. He found creative solutions to manage challenging problems and was always a great thought partner.
