“In the best of times and worst of times, Eric is a first-rate counselor and advisor. He knows how the get the most out of people, deal with the toughest issues, and help organizations and leaders deliver superior results. You can count on him.”
As the Chairman of the Board of 92Y during some of its most difficult, challenging years, Eric worked closely with me and our Board to help steer the organization to cultural health and success. I relied on him for advice and counsel - his many years of corporate HR experience were invaluable to me as the Board Chair. While we're sorry to see him retire from 92Y, he's certainly someone that can help you and your business benefit in so many ways.
I first met Eric over 20 years ago when he was leading global recognition programs at the Nielsen Company. He was my client and we partnered to bring state of the art employee recognition around the world. Over the years he became both a friend and a coach to me. His HR skills are second to none, and his natural way to get to the heart of an issue and give sage advice was something I took advantage of as often as I needed it. I was thrilled to hear of his recent retirement from the 92nd StreetY and even more pleased that he's now bringing his unique skills in coaching and HR problem resolution to a whole new set of potential clients. If you need to have someone tell it like it is, give caring and timely advice and help you improve yourself and your teams, give Eric a call. He'll help you get the job done in a way that you'll appreciate.
Eric is “The Ultimate HR and Business Professional.” He is a professional who listens well and let’s you know that when he responds and makes a lot of sense. He knows his way around the significant issues that HR professionals better get right. Eric is highly respected from the business side of our profession, particularly in the areas of leadership, talent, change, people development, coaching, unions, culture, and all other events that HR/Business pro’s must deal with every day. He has “been there and done that” successfully, more than once, for 40+ years.
Eric was an HR executive at a Fortune 500 company in NYC when I first met him. I had the honor and pleasure of being his coach during one of his transitions. I knew in my first meeting with him that he had all it took to be a phenomenal coach/consultant to many of my clients (small business owners). In fact, while Eric continued his successful career, I called upon him several times to provide expert guidance to some of my clients. But what makes Eric so special is not just his experience and expertise, it is who he is as a human. I think anyone who meets him will find him approachable, endearing, funny, caring, and a man who leads from his heart. It is hard to ask for much more when looking for someone to help you or your business flourish
"Eric's support and advice has been pivotal in my career advancement and professional development. I would not be the senior leader that I am today without the tools that I have gained through Eric's coaching. Eric empowers and guides you to think critically and develop the skills, knowledge and know how to perform effectively. "
Eric is the ultimate HR and coaching professional. There is no element of managing people in which he isn't an expert. His years of experience at the executive level make him a formidable strategic thinker, while his personable and infectious personality puts people at ease the moment they meet him. Eric has the ability to bring out the best in people: whether that's helping them decide on the next step in their career or coaching them through challenging professional obstacles, he can see the potential in every person with whom he works and more importantly, can help them realize that potential. I have been fortunate to have been mentored by him and his advice, counsel and guidance has been invaluable in making me the professional I am today. There is no-one I would trust more for HR advice, coaching support, or with my own personal development.
I had the pleasure of working with Eric for over 10 years and watching the profound impact he had on countless colleagues in every stage of their careers, including mine. A true HR guru, Eric is a mentor at heart, with a unique ability to unlock potential, and to inspire and develop talent at the executive level.
Eric is a gem of a human in and out of a Human Resources office. With an entire career dedicated to top level company and people operations, Eric has 360 knowledge on any related topic. Moreover, in my time working with Eric, I’ve come to value not only his understanding of the core values at the heart of a company and its people, but also in the way these values evolve and change over time. Eric has worked in HR for decades, but he has grown alongside its evolution with a full understanding of how policies, procedures, and people change over time. He knows how to adapt to the current climate and problem-solve accordingly. Best of all, he’ll make you laugh while doing the work. I love my time working with Eric and I have no doubt you will too.
I have had the good fortune to partner with Eric on many HR initiatives and restructurings (employee alignment) for over a decade. I was always impressed with how Eric lead his HR teams by following his true North and doing right by the company and each employee. His great leadership style stems from his vast expertise, but also includes a tapestry of humor, advocacy and an uncanny way to get to the heart of an issue. I have also tapped into Eric as a coach to help reframe my professional and personal goals, and am so grateful for his authentic perspective.
