I’ve worked closely with Rhonda several times over the years, most recently in her capacity as President and CEO of ING Foundation. Rhonda is intelligent, focused and determined with a passion and drive that motivates everyone around her. She has an exceptional ability to understand intricate details of complicated issues while still seeing the big picture and an uncanny knack of quickly sizing up a situation and developing a well thought out solution that balances the interests of all concerned stakeholders. Rhonda’s biggest asset is, perhaps, the ease with which she connects with people at all levels which makes her a very effective leader.
