Bryan is able to motivate a team, to understand and work with multiple departments. He as a drive to make things happen and very good skills in managing new business initiatives. Focused on profits and getting the business basics right, Bryan is one of the top manager I met.
During his 6 month's mission within Mobistar, Bryan has been able to keep and develop the motivation of the web team, improve the quality of the internal relationship with other departments while improving the commercial performance of the web combining with a budget optimization which has allow us to reduce it by 25%.
Thinking back on my time I've worked with Bryan, I remember him being exactly the right person at the right place at the right time: he created a new business opportunity, got the Board heading in the same direction, and then took on the new business with a great deal of entrepreneurship, keeping one eye on the objectives and the other on the interest of the (numerous) stakeholders. Bryan knows what it takes to get a startup on track, and to keep it running. I've admired his speed and intelligence, being always one step ahead of what the rest was thinking.
