Tony is an incredibly passionate, knowledgeable and experienced HR professional. During 2011, in my role as Contract Manager, Contracts and Aeromedical Services Unit, I collaborated with him on the Talent Management Framework. I was impressed with his professionalism, his drive and his ability to rise above competing work conditions to deliver and make change happen. He is responsive, goal oriented, and committed to staying at the forefront of his profession. He is an inspiring HR leader who brings out the best in others.
Tony is a committed hard working individual with a particular passion for working effectively through and with people. His superior networking and political skills were very useful during our working time together. Tony’s insights into tricky people situations are a very valuable asset to anyone needing to navigate through political minefields. His manner is never anything other than that of a gentleman.. such a rarity in today’s world. This made working with him an additional pleasure.
