“I’ve had the privilege of working with Lisa while she managed international products at The Learning Company where she was based out of Dublin over a decade ago, and at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt when she assumed the role of Senior Director of Creative Services.
While building the division within HMH, Lisa assumed a leadership role in the strategy and execution of hiring critical resources, mapping our creative services plan across products and services and effectively building and managing our website. In meeting critical deadlines, Lisa was often the “go-to” manager to get things done on time and on budget. Sensitive to costs, Lisa provided much of her own hands on creative direction, often rolling up her sleeves to successfully construct critical art and design assets for products and services.
Lisa provided valuable people skills in maintaining high motivation within her group, effectively delegating responsibilities and maintaining performance metrics that collectively met and exceeded divisional expectations. It was apparent that over the years that Lisa created and maintained productive relationships with a valuable vendor network that contributed to her success.
When I began building the senior team at HMH, I searched for managers that I had success with in the past. Lisa is a bright, creative and an articulate manager and leader – an asset to any organization. ”
