Rick was a great mentor. He gave the consultants that worked with him the freedom to be all that they could be.
Rick made working for DBM a real pleasure and treated everyone in the organization with respect and gave us the real feeling that our opinions mattered.
He encouraged us to use our own unique consulting style in the context of DBM's goals.
Rick is a great guy and a wonderful manager.
I have worked with Rick many times over the years and been highly impressed from start to finish. He's a great listener, has tremendous depth and insight, and thinks of all the angles. He is also very trustworthy. He is a total quality business partner and advisor!
Provancement provides highly professional and effective executive outplacement services that our customized and personalized. Rick is a prime example of the "pay it forward" philisophy as I had received a lot of value and good take aways from his ProForum and CEO Roundtable networking groups. Rick donates his time and efforts to generate though-provoking content and to moderate these networking events as well as covering the hosting costs of the networking venues. Rick is a class act and provides clear value, support network, and direction to those going through the ever more challenging career transition process!
I have known Rick Hernandez for the past ten (10) years both as a professional colleague and personal friend. He is consistently at the forefront of the latest techniques and technologies to support C-level executives and maximize their potential for leadership, motivation and results. His executive coaching skills have resulted in focused, productive new directions for individuals as well as their teams. He is quick to recognize individual strengths and how to channel them to overcome areas in need of development or improvement. Rick is quick to identify challenges his client faces, identify choices and avenues for positive change and to help his client implement them for long-term growth and success.
Rick is professional in every sense of the word, yet his style is relaxed, open and confident. His sense of humor never fails to help keep the most pressing personal issues or stressful situations within the proper context. I consider him to be the Gold Standard of character and integrity, and I am honored to provide this recommendation.

"I met Rick many years ago after a 12 year tenure as a CFO at Medtronic. He was very empathic and strategic with his personal coaching style. He understood what I was going through and developed a personalized marketing plan for me. He stressed that knowing your audience and being prepared for the rigors of the search process are critical.
He helped me establish goals and how to execute them in a fickle marketplace. He is a terrific coach and advisor with sound ideas that work. I obtained a new C-level position in just a few months. I would highly recommend Rick and his company, Provancement, as your 1st stop when you enter an executive transition period."

It has been a consistent pleasure to participate in Rick’s executive networking and coaching sessions. He excels at simultaneously coaching, educating, challenging and motivating. He brings high energy and conviction to all he does and consistently presents thought provoking ideas and practical approaches to enhance one’s personal ROI (return on investment). I highly recommend Rick to any organization.
Rick has been providing valuable coaching and career guidance to me for the past year. As a Fortune 500 executive in transition, the road to finding ones next great career opportunity is challenging to say the least. However, Rick's personal hands on approach to coaching, his years of experience in job placement, wealth of knowledge, insight and vast network of industry leaders has been invaluable to me. His mastery of the human psyche, eloquent and profound communication and uncanny recollection of meaningful and relevant experiences promotes confidence, empowerment and stimulates the greatest levels of productivity from every individual he works with. He's one of the most personable individuals I've ever has the opportunity to work with and his mentoring has made me a more confident and effective leader.

Rick is a seasoned executive coach and outplacement consultant. He works well with clients at all levels, and he develops positive relationships with everyone he meets.
Most of all, Rick delivers results in a timely, professional and effective manner. The individuals who work with him grow personally and professionally. In my mind, Rick is one of the best in his field.
Rick is an outstanding coach & mentor who provided me with competent advice when considering a transition a few years back. He was able to assist me by clearly identifying the benefits of making the change and the value that my experience could bring to the organization. I would recommend Rick to any executive or business leader who could benefit from thought provoking coaching with a consummate professional
I and my company hired Rick and Provancement to manage outplacement services when the decision was made to close the site that I ran, only to have to use his services myself when I was released along with all my staff. I found Rick to be a fantastic resource for me during my transition period. Transitions are difficult, but Rick not only helped me to organize my job search, but he gave me valuable advice both on the job search side as well as the personal - which is often easily overlooked. His energy and positive outlook is infectious, and I always found myself filled with new energy and ideas after our meetings. Rick also runs an executive placement roundtable called ProForum which is an extremely effective networking group. I can't recommend Rick and the services that he provides enough - he was a guiding light for me during my recent 10-month transition, and I owe him a debt of thanks because my success in landing a good position is largely due to his guidance.
Rick is an exceptional manager with a natural mentoring nature that improves employee and performance morale while watching available resources and budgetary concerns.
He’s dynamic and quick in his understanding of the needs on hand so developing effective and long lasting solutions.
