Gregory Tessler in his own words

Since earning my master's degree in HR, I have worked in over 5 countries including positions as Regional HR Manager and Global C&B Advisor.

Now, my wife, our children and I are based in Vienna, but I travel for high-profile projects.

My LinkedIn profile provides a traditional overview of my education and experience. However, the information below might give you a better insight into my personality and working style.

- performing under pressure and delivering results
(earning black belt, winning trophies and medals)

2. Soccer/International Football, Baseball and other team sports

(In high school, the Dean and teachers chose me to be a student mediator.)

Working Style

The photo above was taken at a business lunch and it is a good representation of my personality. It was not staged. Special thanks to Roland Rudolph, professional photographer, for his amazing talent of capturing live moments. Also, I would like to thank Margaret Childs, CEO and Founder of Metropole, and Andreja Mrzel, Manager, Customer Success, EMEA at BlackLine, for granting me permission to place our photo on my website. As you can see, a collaborative approach is my preferred style.
