If you have to talk to anyone I would suggest Majid. He is a good example of someone that I recruited, onboarded, and led to success. He saw my work first hand in HR as a customer, client, and employee.

Joe Westcott, Director of IT -Institute for Transportation and Development (ITDP) – short project

Relationship: Client (peer) while I was HR Manager

Phone: 347-***-****, Email:

Note: We worked on some projects and positions together and I believe knows my work best.

From LinkedIn:

“It was a pleasure to work with Steve, who achieved major accomplishments at ITDP in amazingly little time. Steve managed to not only replace our health care plan when we received a few weeks’ notice that we were being dropped, but his thorough research and negotiation landed us a better plan than we started out with. At the same time, Steve helped to recruit, interview, and hire two new employees in historically difficult-to-fill positions, including a senior manager position which has been a great success to date. I deeply appreciated Steve's friendly, knowledgeable advice and his efforts to help fill an IT position with a promising new hire.

Steve brought the HR function online before most employees had begun to use our new intranet in any significant way, and his site continues to serve as an active reference for staff. Steve introduced digital forms that allowed us to easily collect hiring and off boarding information from international hiring managers, even behind the Chinese firewall which had given us so much trouble in the past, and we've benefited from the standardization that he introduced in several HR processes.

I'm surely forgetting Steve's many other accomplishments in all the projects we worked on together, but perhaps most importantly, Steve was a trusted thought partner and a pleasure to work with as he helmed our HR functions.”
