Cathy’s depth of knowledge and experience has been gained by living the ups and downs of business life, during some pretty challenging economic times. Highlights of the practical experience she brings to her consulting work include:

  • As Director of Global Talent Relationship Management at a market leading software firm, Cathy helped the company grow from 900 to 4000 employees and $150 million to $1 billion in revenue. Under her leadership, employee attraction and recruitment flourished, employee performance increased significantly and engagement scores soared. As a result of these best practices, the company won several prestigious awards and became known as a premier Employer of Choice.
  • As Executive Director of Strategic Human Resources within a large organization undergoing radical business transformation and unprecedented budget constraints, Cathy helped them develop an innovative, but pragmatic people strategy that got them on track to effectively realize their short and long term business goals. As a result, concern and confusion turned into focused, productive activity.
  • As the HR executive lead on 12 merger and acquisitions within the global business intelligence software industry, Cathy helped successfully merge diverse organizations and align efforts to ensure profitability and sustainability goals were met.

Learning from the best, Cathy has participated in several North American “think tanks” and was a member of key executive roundtables in global talent management, executive development and employee engagement, where firms such as Motorola, Sony, Disney, Merck, Unilever, and UNICEF met regularly to share human resource and organizational development strategies and best practices.
