ELIZABETH:

First off, I just want to tell you that I think that people are the most important aspect of a company. That's why I'd you to head up our new intern program.

I wonder what is the meaning of "I'd you". Dictionaries and searching in the internet couldn't help me. I guess it is probably the short form of "I would like you". Am I right? If I am right, is that short form usage common in spoken English?

The word like is missing between I'd and you in this sentence. Whoever wrote the original sentence made a mistake. This would never be written or spoken in English as StoneyB mentioned in their comment.

    Another acceptable way the same sentence could be written would be: "That's why I want you to head up our new intern program." – J.R. Jan 19 '15 at 10:57
