Bonnie, a friend, writes this about Stan Faryna:

Stan is a kind, intelligent and caring man. He loves his son JT very much.

Stan has and he will keep doing amazing things for others… I’m very proud and very honored to be his friend.

Luminita Gavrila, a former research assistant serving under Stan Faryna at IAB Romania, wrote:

I’m very happy to have worked with Mr. Faryna in his ground breaking work on social media marketing, social search, and social networking. We don’t get many kind of people like this coming to Romania. He’s a genius with a great sense of style, manners and humor. I hope we will collaborate in the future.

John Keefe II, a friend, writes this about Stan Faryna:

Stan is an expert leader who works extremely well with others! He effectively helps other bring out the best in themselves, and does so with great care and patience. Stan leads collaboratively, yet he is not hesitant to make independent “on demand” decisions when necessary. As a visionary, I have seen Stan help inspire other people in their work. Our world is often short of people with vision who do not look at the “end goal.” Fortunately, Stan is not one of those individuals! Overall, I would have to assert that Stan is honest, trustworthy, dedicated, a skilled communicator, and a strategic problem-solver. He looks at the world as it is and asks, “How can I make it better?

Ana Paltinoase, a fan, has this to say:

Mr. Faryna commands wide admiration and attention for his thinking on website design, useability, interactive advertising and social media. Few have anything close to his experience, insight, knowledge and passion for the web. It was an honor to hear him speak at our University and a greater pleasure to get to meet him in person later on and discover the warm and gracious man that he is.

Nicole Mocanu, a former office manager of Halo Interactive SRL, writes this about Stan Faryna:

What is most important to me is not that he can turn businesses and ideas into gold. He does. He did. What is most striking to me is that Stan can turn people into gold! He listens to and understands the people around him with a deep compassion and respect for that individual’s destiny. He encourages people to be more, professionally and as persons.

Gabriel Ilie, a former creative group manager at Faryna and Associates, Inc. writes this about him:

Mr. Faryna is a visionary leader, an agent of change and a wily tactician. His deep understanding of communications, design, and technology is impressive, but he has something more too – wisdom. He brings great passion to what he does and that passion is virile.

Ana Maria Ilie, a former customer service manager at Faryna and Associates, Inc. writes this about him:

I could write pages about Stan Faryna and it still wouldn’t cover what he’s all about! He is always up to something new, better, greater. It’s hard to keep up with his relentless enthusiasm, determination and above all, passion in every endeavor he may pursue.

We came across in a manager – employee relationship and, in time, he became my mentor and my friend. I quickly learned that innovation was an absolute standard, and setting high expectations for myself and others helped tremendously in shaping both my professional and personal life.

Professionally, Stan possesses a wonderful mix of leader and manager qualities. Through continuous education and mentoring, he effectively builds the people around him up, getting the most out of them and constantly challenging them to overcome their limits. Working with Stan has been a gratifying eye-opening experience, perhaps because it hasn’t felt like working at all, but a stimulating environment where we could share ideas and communicate openly.

It struck me as amazing that he always makes time for the people around him. He is a caring, receptive, sensitive and open-minded person, an effective manager and a visionary leader…
