"I met Bryan over 12 years ago when I hired him to turn around a large poor performing HS&E program in Ohio. As the plant safety manager, Bryan was able to quickly establish himself as subject matter expert and employee advocate for safety. The results were substantial and sustainable. In my career I have never met an individual with the passion to serve and high integrity that Bryan maintains. Two years ago I asked Bryan to consult for me at my food processing plant in Minnesota. Once again, he was able to insert his special knowledge and personal belief system into the facility and achieve remarkable results. I would highly recommend Bryan to anyone in need of HS&E services. You will not be disappointed."
