“Rush is a leader, coach and teacher. He challenges the status quo in a way that is always focused on getting the best end result. He also looks for ways to leverage the strength of individuals while still providing growth opportunities. His communication approach is clear, direct, [and] authentic and invites differing viewpoints and ideas. He holds people accountable for what they are supposed to do and teaches/coaches them when they get stuck.

Rush’s honest an open style is refreshing and I would consider it an honor to have the opportunity to work with him or report to him again. He has been a mentor, coach and guide for me in my transition and many of the successes that have occurred for Staff Training are a direct result of his support.”

“When Rush came on board as our interim Chief Human Resources Officer, he immediately began to sort through and manage all of things HR was responsible for. He implemented a market pricing structure that helped communicate much more effectively with managers and staff about appropriate compensation; he made changes in our total rewards programs that saved countless hours of administrative time while improving the impact and effectiveness of the programs; and he worked us through the annual budgeting process more smoothly than I had experienced in my seven years with the firm.

“With Rush’s leadership, our diverse group began to function collaboratively as a team. We were in the loop on things and Rush took a personal interest in making sure that our individual work teams ran smoothly and that wrinkles were ironed out in a short period of time. The Compensation group certainly benefited from his level of expertise and the great ideas he was able to implement here.”
