his time at Candela he was able to organize the
department so it could function properly and go
forward with a full-time Director.
Rick is a very capable, knowledgeable
individual who is a pleasure to work with - a
true asset.” Darrell Simino, Controller, The
Lance Corporation

“Rick worked hard to keep one of our subs
in compliance with all aspects of Human
Resource. When difficult situations arose, he
handled them professionally and
thoroughly. As a result of his dedication we
maintained a functioning HR presence through
out his tenure. I would recommend Rick for
any Human Resource management position.”

Rick Hardy
Director Of Human Resources
TS Central
“Rick was the most senior HR executive in
our firm. He directly supervised a small HR
staff and was responsible for all HR needs
and requirements of the company, with a
total employee base of approximately 75-100
individuals.

Rick is a knowledgeable and experienced
senior executive who collaborated effectively
with all other senior managers while
successfully overseeing all aspects of the HR
function of the organization. He routinely
maintained smooth HR functions while
steering the company's HR activities toward
achieving maximum staff productivity, as well
as a positive, team-oriented culture with high
morale.

I would welcome the opportunity to work with
Rick again and would certainly recommend
him for any position with similar levels of
responsibility and position requirements.”
