Hawksland Associates management skill and expertise was highly appreciated during several attachments. I can recommend their work and in particular their Managing Director – Gary Windas as a person with vast sector knowledge, high integrity and spirit.

Thomas Maiss - Director of Procurement - Rolls-Royce Deutschland

I worked with Gary Windas – Hawksland’s MD in the early stages of his career. It was clear even then that he was a highly motivated, enthusiastic individual with a real thirst for knowledge in the industry. Highly recommended.

Hawksland Associates are extremely good in setting up the right organisation to run very complex projects. They can perform very detailed and in-depth studies and analysis arriving at very worthwhile recommendations.

Hawksland were engaged several times by our company. I was impressed with their drive, determination, assertion tool knowledge and their very structured way of working. They far exceeded their targets.
