    Success Stories

    “I have known Reggie since undergrad days, and we continue to offer advice and support to each other still. I have found him to be a valuable resource when I have human capital questions and concerns. His insight into human behavior and what drives people, what motivates them and what distracts them is top notch. He has always had a passion to understand what drives human behavior and is evident through his research using Neural Networks (AI) as part of his graduate research. Through his professional, academic, and personal experiences he finds ways get people to be more effective in their daily task be it on the floor or in the board room.


    Reggie shows skill and knowledge in all aspects of business as a business owner, as a sr. manager, or as a consultant. If you are looking for a consultant to help your organization navigate the grey areas, you should talk with Reggie.”

    Dr. Anthony J. Rhem, PhD.

    CEO/Principal Consultant, A.J. Rhem & Associates, Inc

    Reggie was the HR Manager during my time at TPI Composites and I know him for more than five years now. I have seen the transition led by his team from being the only woman in the room of fellow engineers in my earlier years at TPI (and also, prior to joining TPI) to working with one of the most diverse teams I have worked with in my career so far. I worked with engineers from all around the world, where each team member was respectful of each other’s beliefs, and diverse cultural and educational backgrounds, and where it was okay to make mistakes and learn. Everyone was more than willing to assist each other and go above and beyond as a TEAM and respect you for who you are. I feel grateful to have experienced such a rare team environment. I learned a lot from Reggie during my time at TPI, especially because he is someone who truly walks his talk. And it does make a difference because I have witnessed that most senior management does not do that, and I feel it is the most counterproductive thing one can do (maybe unintentional). Keep up the good work! I hope other companies benefit from your vast experience in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. Best Wishes!

    “I believe Reggie is a thoughtful listener, an experienced consultant that has transcended several industries and is highly regarded as a peaceful voice in pursuit of developing leaders. In our conversations, he has helped me understand the interesting challenge of fusing multiple personalities into a more cohesive, efficient, and thriving team.”

    Phil Hodgin

    CEO/Corporate President, RDG Planning & Design

    “Reggie believes in building strong teams and getting the most from everyone, especially the hourly workforce as that’s where the work is done. He works with teams to identify barriers, opportunities, and provides them with the tools to be successful. He truly believes in and supports utilizing diverse, cross cultural and functional teams to accomplish short- and long-term goals, while allowing team members the opportunity to grow. He leads and supports from the heart and wants what is best for everyone.”
