Extensive Experience Across Numerous Industries
David is an extremely effective leader, both in the boardroom as well as on the production floor. He consistently demonstrates a "firm but fair" approach with his peers and subordinates, rapidly gains the respect of all those he works with, and delivers superior results.
David has extensive experience across numerous industries and at various levels within production environments. He coaches at a motivational level, and guides hourly workers to embrace the goals of the organization. I, personally, have seen him in turnaround environments where the transition from despondency to hope to high performance in the production work teams was astounding. He never fails to deliver outstanding results, and is the first to credit the win to the team. David is a true servant leader.

Most Professional HR Executive
I would like to share a personal reference with you; concerning one of the most professional HR Executives I have had the honor to work with in the Human Resources Industry.
I have known David Wolfe as a professional for almost a decade. He is a consummate Leader and Executive level HR Officer. As a former HR Executive myself for three Fortune manufacturers, I continue to be impressed with David. He has developed his assessment skills to a level many HR Executives aspire to achieve in their lengthy careers of people problem solving.
David is able to quickly determine the true baseline issues by his keen inquires and listening skills. He then develops his strategy to create the proper ownership atmosphere, while sharing the solution through meaningful delegation. David is a very confident professional who openly shares his accomplishments with the involved parties.
David is the type of HR Executive professional that every outside Executive Firm hopes to have as a client. He is direct, supportive and trusting when he delegates an assignment. I have worked directly for David on several Executive search assignments and reorganizations. I would recommend him without hesitation. He is both an excellent working professional and strategic leader/coach.
Frank V. - CEO
David has an uncanny range of executive talent, utilizing some non-traditional thinking and assessments. He has an enviable ability to work the chain of command pyramid, both horizontally and vertically. David also easily works the intricate side of operational details through the softer side of human emotional capital. His candor level makes him very approachable and personable. Can't miss!

He has an exceptional talent for artfully cutting through rhetoric to identify the heart of a matter. David and I met through a colleague I greatly respect and now I too can emphatically recommend David!
