Recommendations

What people say about me and my work.

”Nicolas was essentially the "end all & be all" of our Vancouver branch at CorporateStays. Working remotely, away from our headquarters, Nicolas was able to drastically increase his branch's bottom line, at the same time as increasing its size via unit acquisition.

Analysis, planning and strong work ethics are qualities that jump to mind when I think of Nicolas.

I would not hesitate to recommend Nicolas to any organization seeking an efficient & analytical operations leader.“
Frederic Aouad
”Nicolas really helped us reorganizing our operations in Vancouver and prepare the land for growth. We are really happy of his professionalism and dedication to work!“
Vladimir de Suarez
”I had the pleasure to work with Nicolas for a few years. He is a terrific operator-manager, very sharp and focused on achieving the company's objectives, and helping employees reach theirs. I definitely recommend him and am sure he can do great things for any organization.“
Andre Jenanji
”Nicolas was such a pleasure to work with. From the moment I took over the Vancouver market for sales, I was never left to worry about any guest service issues or concerns. He not only dealt with property management of buildings, but also maintained ongoing relationships with owners and clients alike. When you asked him a question or had any sort of issue, regardless of how small or complex, he always had an answer and was happy to help. One of the most thorough, hard working and reliable people I have had the pleasure of working with.“
