–Karen P., Vice President and Franchise People Officer at Activision Blizzard
"Melissa brings a unique blend of passion for and commitment to her profession combined with a contagious sense of humor and that enables her to develop strong working relationships throughout an organization. She's a "stand-out" when it comes to identifying and selecting talent, and personally recruited and developed a talented team of new HR generalists into the US while at IVGN. She has parlayed her expertise into a successful executive search career that allows her to now share her talents with many organizations."
–Laurel M., Head of HR Asia at Intuitive Surgical
"I am so pleased to be able to offer a recommendation for Melissa. Ask anyone who has had the fortune to work with or even around Melissa and you will hear she is one of the sharpest individuals they've ever met. I am convinced she can do - and do it exceptionally well - anything she chooses. But she is certainly known for her ability to identify, assess and place talent. This is a skill that many of us learn to do as part of our HR repertoire, but what Melissa has is something more innate that takes her abilities in this area to a totally different category. Aside from her talent acquisition skills, she is an incredibly well rounded HR and business professional. She has exceptional organizational agility, her wit is unmatched, and her integrity is second to none. Not only is she well versed in the craft of all things HR, she is someone that I simply enjoy to be around -- and you can't ask for more than that."
–Suzanna G., Human Resources Leader
