Areas of expertise
Business Transformation, Organizational Change Management, Leadership Coaching
I am an experienced change leader who has helped PwC, J&J, Marriott, Ritz Carlton, and RGP - among other world-class companies - more effectively achieve their visions by translating strategy into initiatives that incorporate best practice change management, organization development, leadership development and process improvement. My deep expertise in planning and implementing successful, inclusive and strategically-aligned programs was built through leadership roles in close to 20 large-scale change efforts from culture/values change to enterprise-wide Lean Six Sigma deployments.
At AIG, I led a team that turned our global HR operating model transformation mandate into a compelling vision, a clear change roadmap with milestones, and a diverse workforce mobilized for action. Working with the CHRO, executive team and a cross-functional team at Solix, Inc., I used a best practice approach to develop a modern capability framework that enabled the company's new growth strategy.
