Partners and Clients Share Their Stories:
“I can personally attest to Gina's financial and commercial acumen and knowledge of infrastructure projects. Gina is a passionate self starter, who can work independently whilst influencing and supporting the partners to the project, whether they be, investors, board directors, clients, service providers or employees. Her involvement with the Board of Directors, whether preparing board material or presenting financial reports was thorough and effective.
Many times, Gina demonstrated strong leadership skills and was able to adapt culturally while working with international partners across many disciplines. For a period Gina was also responsible for setting up the corporate HO of HCP Canada, and independently handled legal issues while negotiating commercial agreements.
It was an absolute pleasure working with Gina and I know that she will do well in her career. I strongly recommend Gina for senior Finance positions, and I can be reached to discuss Gina's professional attributes further.”
Donna McCormack, Finance Director, HCP Social Infrastructure (UK) Ltd
“I have worked with Gina over a 3-year period and found her to be enthusiastic, hard working and motivated in somewhat challenging circumstances. There have been many challenges on the projects she has worked on over that period which she has handled well and always maintained her enthusiastic approach and a demonstrated a willingness to learn new skills to take the challenge on independently. I would be happy to discuss with you Gina's specific achievements during this period.”
