"Steve is an exceptional talent and his combination of legal knowledge, business acumen and a management skill is rare. Steve was already acting as Chief of Staff to the CEO when I joined Ahold USA in 2013, and his leadership was critical in guiding the board as we completely revamped the business governance model and executed a brand re-launch at all of our businesses. His extraordinary sense of strategy and execution ensured the success of these and numerous other important initiatives. The secrets to Steve’s success are simple – he’s bright and an incredibly hard worker, treats everyone with respect, puts his team first and has impeccable ethics. I can’t recommend Steve strongly enough."
