Steve is one of the best managers I have worked with. He has made every effort to ensure every detail about a position is understood. He is always available to answer questions and is always understanding no matter what the situation. I enjoy working with him and I hope it continues far into the future.

I had the opportunity to work with Stephen on a number of projects over a period of one year, and found Steve to be very insightful, honest, professional, and an enabler in the process. As a service provider, he did exactly what he said he would do, and when he said he would do it. He will always be one of my first calls if I require a consultant to manage an internal staffing organization.

Steve and I partnered together at Ossanna Consulting Group. He was in the role of HR consultant, onsite at various clients. Steve is a "get it done" consultant, able to walk in the door and hit the ground running! He is very well networked, particularly in the diversity community. Steve is very well liked by his colleagues, and well respected by his clients. Steve is also a "jack of all trades." He is an excellent recruiter, but he's also skilled in project/vendor management. I would recommend Steve for any HR project work.
