  1. Dominic is a hard-driven, energetic, charismatic, personable CEO who shows his commitment to both our customers and our employees in his every day actions. He is relatively new in our complex company that recently merged 3 different businesses with different SaaS environments and strategies but has been able to quickly understand the challenges from all vantage points and drive an appropriate strategy that will reduce redundancy and confusion, increase revenue, decrease rollout time and increase uptime for our customers as well as improve overall employee morale. Dominic is very hands on, regularly on the road meeting with our customer across the globe. He came into a difficult situation with frustrated customers and employees and in a very short timeframe, has turned the company around.

  2. Dominic knows how to truly empower his employees. His presence at this company has been a true breath of fresh air, we finally have a true leader with an unparalleled enthusiasm for success. Dominic engages with his employees across a broad spectrum of areas and it never once feels like there is any “micro-managing” occurring but rather just genuine care. Dominic makes strategic decisions that truly benefit the overall health of the company. Dominic’s vast knowledge of multiple industries makes him an asset that we truly grateful to have on our team.

  3. Commitment to transparency and his energy are in my opinion 2 of his strengths that I see on a regular basis Here at Erecruit. He really does his best to let everyone at Erecruit know what is going on with the company by holding regular town hall meetings, at the same time flying all over the country and overseas to personally meet with clients and potential new hires to find the best people for the job. I have never seen a CEO do more work than him and still have energy to spare.

  4. Dominic is highly engaging and supportive of the experience around his management team. He quickly identifies strong performers and collaborates with them through all levels, and with concentration of focus on the customer that I’ve rarely seen. Not afraid to make unpopular decisions, his clear message has been one of investing in long term assets that underpin the organisation’s strengths.
