"I’ve had the pleasure of working with George in the challenging Near East Region and truly enjoyed his “can do “attitude, interest in people and positive approach to challenges. He gave me and my team crucial support to manage our business through drastic currency devaluation (overnight 40% devaluation) and later on, in establishing an affiliate in Central Asia. Combined with his business insights, his vast network ensured that my team was guided through every step of the complex 12-month Affiliate-project which enabled a smooth transition and received “best in class” recognition by Auditors. Even with his vast workload George frequently invested time to connect with me to offered further support. During our dealings together I found him insightful, supportive, and willing to listen and understand. I truly enjoyed working with George who led by example and with high integrity"
