General Manager – Procter & Gamble
Business Analysis at Kimberly Clark
One of the best professionals I have worked with. Trust, passion, honesty and people caring are a few words that I can quickly connect with him. Also, challenging, goals oriented, problem solver and ethics above all. His impact always went beyond the workplace and business results but most importantly on people’s lives.
By being an example of practicing what he believes in he quickly inspires others towards self improvement doing the right things right for the business and most importantly for the individuals themselves. I was lucky to work with Percy for several years having him as a customer (Peru 1987-1991) and later on as my leader (Argentina 1997-1998). Constant themes coming from him: creating a vision, energizing people – through one-on-one coaching and teamwork building – and enabling the achievement of breakthrough results.
