Victor I. Rosansky
Victor has dedicated his career to designing and implementing processes that help organizations and people change and grow in new resilient ways. An avid innovator, Victor uses current breakthrough advances in the neurosciences to provide clients with insights critical to making change.
His “practical education” resulted from his good fortune in having world-class companies and their leaders as clients. From Sam Walton, founder of Wal-mart, he learned the importance of a Business Process Mindset; Quality from P&Gʼs President, John Pepper; Alignment from Fedex Chairman, Fred Smith; the importance of Focus from Lou Gerstner when he was at American Express; and the challenge of Going Global from McDonaldʼs senior managers.
A sought after global speaker and consultant, Victor has given keynote speeches at prestigious forums such as, The Learning Edge Conference in Paris, the National Forum on Quality Improvement in Health Care, and the Australian International Quality Conference. He co-authored three books, the most recent of which is Rapid Realignment: How to Quickly Integrate People, Processes, and Strategy for Unbeatable Performance.
His consulting career started 30 years ago with ODI (Overseas Development Institute) that he helped grow into a global consulting company with several hundred employees. Victorʼs entrepreneurial pursuits continued as he co-founded LHR International, a management consultancy that works with organizational culture and people issues; he also launched a biotech startup and a digital imaging startup. He was coach to over 100 entrepreneurs for the SUNY Levin Institute’s JumpStartNYC program, helping them transition from the corporate world to the world of the entrepreneurial startup. He also consults, as an advisor, Boards of for-profit and non-profit organizations.
Victor has an M.A. in Economics from Boston University, an M.A. in Psychology from Brandeis University and an MBA. He has taught at Boston University, the Hult International School of Business, the SUNY Levin Institute and was a guest lecturer at the prestigious International University of Japan.
