Anthony is a true Human Resources expert. He developed an entire department and set of procedures and policies from scratch at FreshDirect. I highly recommend him.
Anthony is a people person with reliable judgement and focused execution skills. He evaluates situations from all angles (business and employees) before bringing a reasonable, carefully balanced perspective to the table.

Like every company - at Big Fuel every employee contributes to its success. But there is always a leader, someone who captains the ship - driving the future of the company and making sure that all parts are in working order. Enter Anthony!
Big Fuel's super talented team was lead by Anthony steering Talent and HR. With Big Fuel's explosive growth Anthony made sure operational processes and systems were always in place. No easy task when a company excels so quickly.
Beyond Talent, HR and Operations, Anthony is a social media wizard. He has tested every social platform and knows how brands + startups can leverage their value.
Anthony's executive experience and passion for the startup ecosystem make for an exciting future. It's a future worth watching closely and I hope that we will be on the same team again. You would too!
Anthony has a rare combination of no-nonsense, "lock it down"operational chops, coupled with the visionary leadership skills necessary to scale a business in a dynamic digital setting. He was an important part of our executive team and I can highly recommend him.
Anthony puts the "human" in human resources. He brought order and process where there was none. He was creative in a department where you usually don't find creativity. He knew how to balance the pragmatic, rule-focused corporate world with the human capital and emotional side of managing people. There were many times, Anthony caused me to pause and rethink something. He tops my list of the best human resource (talent officers) people I've even worked with. Anthony has special talents of his own.
Anthony simply put is a great guy. To be a great guy, you have to have many qualities. Three of which I admire most about Anthony is his uncanny ability to listen, ask the right questions, and lead by example.
At Zeta as COO, Anthony had to juggle and manage hundreds of people across the states and in our office overseas. He had to deal with different issues and personalities across our many different business units (email, search, web dev, creative, social, mobile, full-service, sales, marketing, tech, etc). As I watched from afar, I was extremely impressed with his ability to sit back and listen and get to the heart of the issue by asking the right questions. What problems would take many companies weeks or months to solve, Anthony was able to resolve in days. His background in HR and talent evaluation makes Anthony a great executive.
I look forward to the day to work with Anthony again.
"You should talk to ...". That's a phrase that comes up whenever smart people in any industry get together and discuss new trends and technologies. In the Digital space Anthony is the guy at the end of that sentence. Not only does he seem to know all the top talent working in our industry, he also keeps on top of all the latest digital developments and can offer insight on just about anything. My favorite thing about Anthony is his ability to see the big picture. Whether it's finding the right person to fill a position, the right technology or service solution to solve a business problem, or the right way to communicate important messages to clients and staff, you can count on Anthony to deliver a strategy that serves the short AND long term needs of his organization. "You should talk to Anthony". You won't be sorry you did.
Anthony is an excellent coach, he provided immense guidance in understanding the difference in culture and expectations of employees from different background. He is genuinely interested in developing talent. A Great listener, which I consider a valuable skill set for a HR professional. Managed to establish a connection with employees at various levels.

It is rare and refreshing to work alongside a professional with such a strong character and sense of purpose.
