Jerry’s wisdom and experience helped me to understand the importance of putting a process in place to help groom leaders for the longevity of a company. A message I’ve heard before and now thanks to him have experienced and truly understand. His ability to present complex concepts to me in such a simple, logical manner really shows his level of mastery.

Jerry’s gift is in reaching the individual person and providing them with the confidence of belief and faith in the direction of a collective vision.  He provides this foundation of success by enlightening others through his superlative integrity, his passion for people, and his ability to inspire individuals to greatness by surpassing their singular potential.  In a business world where one engages with thousands of personalities, few possess the ability to produce a seismic change in one’s own self awareness, Jerry Rudiak is one of those few.

Jerry developed and led a world class global engineering and support organization with very high standards; truly the best I’ve worked with during my career. The excellence carried by he and his team was a direct contributor to my own account success. He possesses a unique and confident leadership style which I have seen become the benchmark for other organizations, and which I try to emulate in my own career. Jerry brings these qualities to the organization, and to individuals and groups he mentors, in a “service” oriented manner which makes he and his team a pleasure to work with.
