I worked closely with Jeff for about ten years, initially as a corporate HR Business Partner for my Medical Affairs function at BD. Jeff proved to be a seasoned, experienced colleague, not only expert in the details of HR, but also able to see the big picture. In addition to his deep knowledge of functional areas, his strong contributions to the success of our enterprise won him promotion to the most senior business-facing HR executive in the company. Jeff carefully considers and evaluates all sides of a complex issue before proposing the best solution for long-term success. He has high ethical standards, which add an important dimension to his effectiveness as a teacher and mentor.
