Design and deliver development programs aligned with the company’s strategic talent needs, and prepare our managers to help employees be successful as their responsibilities expand due the growth in the business.
  • Employee Relations: Recommend and implement employee relations programs to foster a positive employee/employer relationship and promote a high level of employee morale, productivity, engagement and retention.
  • Team Leadership: Across the enterprise, coach and counsel people-managers, and provide tools and guidance that enable effective leadership. Within Human Resources, build and lead an outstanding team of human resources functional experts who have sufficient talent to scale with the growth of business.

  • At least 10 years of human resources experience.
  • Experience working in founder led companies.

  • Prior involvement in the M&A process including HR due diligence and successful integration of acquired workforces.
