Career Built on Success


People & Culture

 With technology being available to all companies, the only real competitive advantage is the people and culture. Finding, growing and engaging people within the unique culture is what separates great companies. That is where I come in. My career has been about transforming culture, unleashing the power of people and adding value to organizations. Whether establishing a new corporate culture, a executive succession plan, a new recruiting strategy, a learning deployment plan or implementing a new performance management system, I leverage best in class HR practices to solve the critical issues that stand in the way of the business success. A few examples include:

* $5M reduction of SG&A costs implementing an organization efficiency program
* $3M ROI through regional overhaul of Talent Acquisition process, Employer Branding and ATS implementation
* $3M savings consolidating 13+ countries into a HR Shared Services Center and Payroll outsourcing
* $2M+ savings reducing turnover by 50%+
* Over $500M increase in top line revenue through process redesign, employee engagement, leadership development, shaping culture and other talent initiatives
* Innovative succession strategies yielding 4 Presidents and 20+ executives through identification of top talent and proactive development of skills and capabilities.

As an accomplished global Human Resource leader and trusted advisor, I have a record of innovative initiatives that provide a competitive talent advantage. My Success has been built across diverse cultures (Asia, Europe, north and south America) and diverse industries (Technology, Consumer Products, Retail, non-profit). Not only do I have an extensive background across the breadth of HR, my career is augmented with experience in IT and Finance. With my unique background, I am not your typical HR professional and can bring a broader perspective to any business.
