My name is George Fazio, I have been President and CEO at Corvia Medical, Inc. since 2010.
Prior to Corvia I held numerous leadership positions at St. Jude Medical, including President Europe, Middle East, Africa and Canada (EMEA) based in Brussels, Belgium. It was in the EMEA role where I was fortunate enough to meet and work with Tilly. Being new in Belgium I interviewed numerous potential candidates and ultimately hired someone new for the administrative assistant role so we could grow together in our positions. As she had been a manager in a previous company, she understood the needs and value of high-performance administrative support. Delivering a pro-active level of professional support was very important to her. Tilly took it very personally to make sure that I could perform at my best by clearly understanding and supporting the priorities of my leadership role. Discretion and confidentiality mean a lot to her. She always looked for further efficiencies, ways to improve things, was proactive and anticipated the next series of events. my gate keeper at times, was flexible and accommodating when and where needed. I would recommend her because she understood both our roles and the objectives of the company which empowered her to be forward thinking and a great asset in keeping my agenda focused on the highest priorities of the company without overlooking the day-to-day needs of our entire team. I would also like to note she did all this with a wonderful sense of humor!
