I have worked with Lisa for many years first as a colleague and then as her direct manager in a situation where she took on an extremely complex product and achieved complete success within a year. I can't say enough wonderful things about Lisa. She has the ability to take on a complex task and/or situation, and break it down into manageable components. She is collaborative, delivery focused, and an excellent manager of people. Complex products and projects are Lisa's strong suit where she is responsible for all phases of delivery including people who report to her and (more) people who do not report to her. And she always achieves success. People like working with and for Lisa and that contributes to her success. Lisa is also a very strong product manager, taking on complete responsibility for all phases of managing ongoing product life cycle. Lisa puts full passion into everything she does and is an absolute delight to work with. I hope that I can work with Lisa again someday!

I had the pleasure of working directly for Lisa for 4 years in a variety of product management and delivery roles at Fidelity Investments. Lisa is an outstanding leader, with a rarely-found ability to not only set a vision aligned with corporate strategy, but to organize and motivate a team to execute on that vision while balancing completing priorities and navigating a highly-matrixed organization. Lisa has a very calm and confident leadership style, and thrives in highly challenging environments. She is a tremendous manager, passionate about developing her team and finding high quality opportunities for growth within that team. I would work for Lisa again in a heartbeat, and any organization would be lucky to have her in an executive role.
