Victor Assad’s HR assessment provided valuable and long-lasting insights for our growth, and his coaching of our executives during difficult times has been equally valuable.

Victor Assad provided us a broad and thorough HR assessment which identified several areas for us to improve our HR processes and drive business success. We appreciate how he also offered us practical steps to implement his recommendations and showed us the return on our investment for doing so.  His expertise in all areas of both regulatory and applied HR has been of enormous help to us.

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.
