"I have had the pleasure to work with Ed for many years at Swiss Re, collaborating in a range of highly complex HR projects, such as aligning deliveries to strategy, cost reduction and new delivery approaches. Personally I am impressed by Ed's charisma, by his open and professional communication, by his ability to link very quickly with people from all kind of backgrounds, which helps a lot to get things done."
"Ed Varhola defines dedication and commitment. He is driven to succeed and it is not for his own gain, but for the betterment of his colleagues. It's rare when someone gives their talents to help others succeed, yet Ed is the kind of professional who shares every bit of knowledge he has and only seeks to move the organization, as a whole, forward. His collegial, affable spirit, combined with a sharp mind and broad perspective are valuable attributes that will serve any organization he serves very well."
Former Managing Director at Swiss Re
"I have worked with Ed for over two years at Swiss Re. I have found him to be a great teammate and I trusted colleague. Some of Ed's greatest attributes are his organization, project management and critical thinking skills. Ed possesses the ability to lead at various levels and his straight forward style and candid approach allow people to gravitate towards him willingly. Bottom line, Ed is a great guy and would be an asset to any team or organization."
"Ed is a trustworthy business contact I've worked with at Sprint, and I've also worked with in coaching youth sports in the Kansas City area. You really get to know somebody when you share a coaching role, and Ed has a special ability to lead youth in sports activities AND also be able to do similar operations in the business world. I highly recommend Ed as I know when he says he will get something done, then it will get done and it will be done in the right way. No shortcuts, no reduced quality, but just top of the line professional work."
