Lasalle Group Team

About Us

After 20 years of experience in the Life Sciences industry, chemical engineer Yolanda Lassalle, LSSMBB, started a business consulting firm to help companies become more agile and productive. What began as a firm focused on continuous improvement, and operational efficiency soon grew to include services encompassing employee mindset and behavior- a quintessential requirement to drive sustainable change. The result of this combination is A.D.I.S – a proprietary methodology for sustainable business and cultural transformations.

LaSalle Group has grown steadily since its establishment, working with clients in Europe, Asia, North America, and the Caribbean. The firm has expanded its service offering to include a broad range of solutions to develop high-performing leaders and organizations. Scores of companies have worked with our senior consultants, the vast majority of whom are Lean Six Sigma certified with over 15 years of experience, to build better organizations and workplaces.

Yolanda Lassalle, LSSMBB, a Stanford LBAN alumnus, has now dedicated over 35 years to help companies in various industries, including Healthcare, Insurance & Services, Higher Education & Research, and Banking. Together with Yolanda, LaSalle Group is led by Hector Aponte, PE, LSSGB, as COO for Puerto Rico Operations; Mayra Marquez, MBA, LSSBB, as COO for USA Operations; Luis Sola, Ph.D., LSSMBB, as Executive Director of Certifications and Courses; Jurisan Soto, M.S., LSSBB as head of People & Leadership development; and David Pagan, B.Arch., LSSGB as COO for MurmurattoTM – a LaSalle Group funded software startup driving employee-led innovation and continuous improvement in North America.
