Testimonials

Selecta

It has been a real pleasure working with Jesper.
The 6 month mission scope was focused on the HR integration preparation work of Pelican Rouge to Selecta. Jesper provided strong leadership in all HR dimensions of the preparation work: talent & retention, organization engagement pulse checks, organizational design, purpose and values.
Jesper’s contribution has been very valuable for the future success of the integration.

Gategroup

"I have worked with Jesper for three years, running the $1.3B Gategroup Europe & Africa business.  During that time I came to understand and appreciate what an exceptional HR executive he is.  Jesper constantly thinks about the business’s needs and recalibrates based on changes in the environment, focusing on how to address the talent bench, top team dynamics, negotiations with the unions, individual leaders’ effectiveness, and cost reduction opportunities.  He is measured and deliberate in how he addresses these, working through his own reports as well as leveraging himself through the wider organization.  He has the ear of the key leaders in the business and effectively influences change and action, in addition to effectively coordinating and driving execution where he is overtly in charge.  Jesper is an exceptionally experienced HR and general management professional, and would be effective in a range of different challenges."

Copenhagen airport is infamous for its difficult and legacy labour environment and Jesper was in the middle of it during a complex restructuring period.  He was instrumental in ‘keeping the peace’ during his negotiations, building relationships with senior political, bank and customer contacts as well as key influencers in the airport environment, re-building the local management team throughout the process and driving forward a restructuring program with the new team. 

Ultimately, Jesper’s efforts resulted in a new and much more flexible long-term labor agreement, which both parties can live with and honour.  These types of situations are extremely complicated due to the history, the personalities, the emotions in the room, the various business interests, the local political environment and national political environment.  

Jesper has the ability to sort through this and communicate a picture so that a management team can make a decision about how to approach a complex union negotiation and get both parties discussing solutions constructively.

His enviable capability list results in strong executive gravitas and resultant C-suite impact. Although fiercely results oriented, Bulskov's style is is ethical, subtle and inclusive. He is an intelligent, pragmatic and effective, very 'safe pair of hands'."
