"As VP Marketing for Ford of Canada, I found Linda to be the ideal partner: an insightful strategic thinker able to solve the most critical challenges who also possesses the drive, energy, passion and leadership to ensure those strategies become actions, executed to perfection. Whether leading a cross-functional team or interfacing with Senior/Executive Leadership, Linda is a brilliant communicator, and LISTENER."
"I had the pleasure of working with Linda for 5 years as she moved up the ranks from senior planner to director and ultimately into SVP role supporting the Ford brand. Linda is an expert at combining the needs of the brand with complex research to develop successful strategic marketing programs.

On a personal level, Linda always has a big smile and positive attitude. She is strongly committed to the organizations, clients and colleagues with whom she works. I highly recommend Linda as a strategic Leader."
" I absolutely love working with Linda. She has the most amazing ability to balance the needs of her clients and the quirks and passions of their supplier partners in a way that leads to great relationships and fantastic outcomes. She is feisty, funny and a delight to work for and with. She is the best kind of business partner - sharp, strategic and fierce - and yet humble enough to acknowledge that she doesn't know everything. I love this openness and her eagerness to learn - and her enthusiasm to share her considerable talents. A true gem in every way."
