After many years of running successful and highly integrated HR strategies within several public and private companies, I created my own firm providing these services for Private Equity firms and portfolios. That company became a highly successful Benefits Procurement / HR Consulting firm that was purchased by NFP in January 2012. Those business lines still exist to serve clients in standalone offerings; Alterity Group and HR Services.
As a career HR leader, I have worked to align the companies goals and employees goals in a way that adds value to an organization and engages the employee to excel and manage their own career growth and success. After the integration of our acquired company, I assumed the head of HR role for NFP and became an executive level leader in the company. Transitioning NFP from a public holding company to a private insurance brokerage and consulting company that has grown to be the 4th largest insurance brokerage in the US, requires cultivating a people-centric work environment where our employees are seen as the #1 asset of the company and encouraged to build honest and transparent relationships with our clients and vendor/partners to unite all parties together for mutual success. This Peoplefirst culture is ingrained in everything we do.
Now I am focused on building an inclusive environment that brings a sense of belonging to our employees and encourages innovation from the strength of our differences. We continue to make significant progress in advancing women leaders throughout the organization with the full support of our CEO and executive team including my appointment to our Board of Directors. We have created an Advisory Board as a grass roots effort to join people from all business lines and levels, all ethnicities and genders with different experiences to build upon our D&I work and bring best practices to the business. These efforts have had a direct impact on the business performance and success.
