“I have known Bernie for over 30 years and done business with him on many different occasions during that time, as partners and as colleagues. At Philips he was ambitious, resourceful and focused on growing his business into more than 20 countries. In addition to his professionalism he achieved this with healthy doses of fun, which makes working with him most enjoyable.
In my recent dealings with Bernie as a business partner, I see that he has lost none of those qualities. He is one of those people who always achieves his goals when he sets his mind on it”.
“Bernie is a consummate professional whose unmatched experience in global business development was, to my understanding, absolutely pivotal to the successful growth of YCD. He worked closely with the founders in strategic planning, and in successful funding.
Bernie is one of a handful of people that I know with the depth of experience in North American and European markets needed to chart today's business environment, and the skills to apply to almost any business. His passion and vision were invaluable in our work together. He is truly a pleasure to work with. He is highly respected in the boardroom, by co-workers, by customers, and by business associates.
