“For nearly a decade our firm has utilized Paul’s skills as a coach for executives, an advisor for our ownership group, and a fractional leader for our Human Resource team. He has made measurable impact as a leader for the HR staff and he is one of the wisest advisors I’ve worked with in addressing the often complex world of human capital.”

“It’s been years since White Knight sought me out using research methods that looked deep into many talent pools. Their simulation interviewing and cultural testing required effort and time but truly examined my abilities and my match with the leadership role at Allturf. I know that Allturf’s ownership group agrees with me – White Knight showed us what real talent search looked like at a critical point in our growth as we progressed to the profitable sale of the business.”

Researching, developing and implementing important elements of our board mandate, Paul managed challenges that were unique to our board structure.

“As a CEO of a fast-growing FinTech, I was impressed by Paul’s ability to advise technology companies and boards as they dealt with start up and human capital issues. His guidance was instrumental in supporting rapid growth, especially dealing with the complexities of managing people and ensuring good governance. Paul speaks the language of entrepreneurs and I highly recommend him as an advisor for firms scaling up their business in the technology sector.”

David Sudbury – Retired CEO

“A decade ago I engaged Paul Gibson to assist me in assessing the Human Capital and Leadership needs of our family’s company. He has since became a trusted advisor to me and other family members on the challenges and opportunities of addressing family business institutions (councils, trusts and foundations) and relationships within the business. His guidance has improved our family firm in more ways than I can count.”
