Mark Pecoraro Quote

"Lesly is an exceptionally talented professional, who provided the necessary skills and expertise to help me navigate an extremely challenging merger. As a CEO pulling together two troubled software companies, I was faced with challenges that were largely focused on the management teams and all of the associated dynamics that accompany such a transaction. Lesly was able to quickly and objectively understand the two unique cultures, and the people dynamics that were a product of the merger. She was instrumental in helping to get clarity, direction and focus throughout the organization. Lesly's ability to take a very complex situation, and distill it into a simple and clear framework was invaluable. In addition to her professional capabilities, she is simply a pleasure to work with."
