PE Portfolio-wide Executive, Board Member and Chief Operating Officer
"I’ve worked with Maurice over the past decade on a ton of large complex employee-impacting situations. We partnered on acquisition integrations, critical organizational changes, and leadership development, to name a few, and his counsel and guidance were particularly valuable for keeping my organizations growing during the pandemic. When it comes to the “people” domain, I need someone who won’t hold back or sugar coat the message. He is exactly the person I want guiding me in this space. We may not always agree, but with Maurice there is creativity. There is candor. Most of all, there is trust..."
PE-backed Software Chief Executive Officer + Chief Operating Officer
"Mergers and acquisitions are hard work. So often, leaders are busy merging products, systems and processes, but overlook the importance of effectively bringing the people together. I have been fortunate to partner with Maurice on multiple M&A projects and HCM initiatives. His best practices and playbooks helped me to orchestrate the critical, and sensitive aspects of bringing people together. In every single instance, Maurice has impacted eNPS, employee engagement and reduced the inevitable employee churn that happens with change. Since our time in private equity together, I have reached out to Maurice for advice and mentorship on multiple projects..."
PE-backed Expense Management Software Chief People Officer
"I have had the pleasure of working with Maurice over the past 6 years on several complex initiatives, mainly focused on post M&A integration. I was also a student in a “mini MBA” program that he designed and where he often delivered various forms of content. In all of Maurice’s roles, he brings the unique skill of simplifying the complex. He also has the ability to break down the thickest and highest of walls, with the authentic approach he has to everything he does... "
Founder/CEO and Management Consultant
"What I treasure most about working with Maurice is his natural capability to see the best outcomes for both the organization and people, while identifying worst-case scenarios early, and developing appropriate avoidance or mitigation strategies. That, and his passion for the work - he truly loves client interaction and people-focused development programs"
PE Portfolio CHRO + Legal Software Chief People Officer
"I have had the honor of working with Maurice for 5+ years at this point. Our first interaction was during an Executive Leadership Development program, where he designed and facilitated a 9 month program for rising Executives across a PE portfolio. Maurice and I partnered on several talent initiatives and needless to say that I was impressed so much by his expertise that I found a way to continue our partnership..."
VC-Backed Software Chief Executive Officer
"My co-founder and I worked with Maurice for almost 2 years. He helped us grow from 35 to 70 employees. He was instrumental in that growth. Simply put-- we could not have done it without him..."
VC-Backed Software Chief Operating Officer
"Maurice was a lifesaver for us. As a hyper growth startup we were aware of the importance of a world class team, but we didn't know the first thing about how to implement scalable solutions and processes to address HR, recruiting, culture, and human capital growth. Maurice's experience and authentic passion for coaching put us and our team at ease and we transitioned from a state of borderline chaos to one of calm and control. "
