It's rare that you find the combination of talents that Irina has. I’ve had the pleasure of working with Irina for nearly nine years, during which time we’ve worked together on a number of projects. Whether Irina provided expertise on a project I was leading, I supported her in the many initiatives that she took on, or she provided advice and mentorship to me, I could not have asked for a better colleague.
Irina is able to quickly analyze and distill complicated regulatory, legal, contracting, or other business issues into actionable steps in ways that provide maximum value to the organization. She has the rare skill to be able to quickly become knowledgeable and in a topic or field that was largely unfamiliar to her previously. This makes her extremely valuable to any organization or team.
In addition, Irina has shown herself to be a skilled leader, taking over under performing teams and transforming them into efficient and effective contributors to the organization. She takes time to both address the needs of her team, while at the same time leading them to perform at higher levels. As a result, she is respected as a leader at all levels of the organization.
Irina accomplishes all of the above with great attitude, humor, and personality. She is a pleasure to work with and is a great asset to any team.
