“I worked with Kim for more than two years on a regular basis. She is a wonderful colleague and a consummate professional.

No matter whether she was addressing a broad-brush strategic initiative or a discrete personnel matter, Kim displayed a calm, thoughtful approach. Of critical importance, she also paid great attention to the details, to ensure that each new project was properly executed. I completely enjoyed working with Kim on all of our joint efforts, and would highly recommend her to anyone needing HR resources for her skills, integrity and willingness to roll up her sleeves and get the job done.”

“What differentiates Kim from typical HR executives is her ability to actually implement the corporate objectives into the workforce. 

She is an excellent partner for the CFO in that she understands the link between HR initiatives and financial performance.  Kim is a pleasure to work with and is committed to developing innovative strategies to improve culture, efficiency and value."

“I worked with Kim for three years and found her to be an outstanding professional.

While Kim had great technical knowledge, I appreciated as much her ability to get things done, and done right. Whether it was an individual contribution or working through others, Kim could be relied on to do a great job in a timely way. She would anticipate what needed to be done, initiate plans and actions and I could count on the result. Kim works extremely well with others and was well liked by all she interfaced with, even in difficult times. Without hesitation I would work with her again and recommend her to others. I have worked with many people over my 40 year career and Kim is one of the very best.”

“Kim is a well-rounded HR professional and terrific business partner.

I worked with Kim at Jack Morton Worldwide where she was VP of Human Resources Planning.  Kim is grounded in all aspects of HR: organizational development, recruiting, employee relations, HR strategy and compensation & benefits.  At Jack Morton, she was integral in helping us establish an HR infrastructure from scratch and later in leading the HR integration to ensure the successful acquisition of our largest competitor.  All along, she was remarkable at balancing big picture objectives with the detail focus required to ‘get it done’ and employee wishes with agency needs. Her personal style makes her easy to work with and enables her to be effective at all levels of an organization. I highly recommend Kim for your HR needs.”

“Kim was hired to create and drive a project plan for the acquisition of a manufacturing facility in Utah, and she was critical to the success of the project. She just took control and got it all done.

Kim’s expertise in HR is why we hired her, but it was her ability to work across disciplines and pick up the slack in the other areas that made her so invaluable to us. We were working under tremendous time pressure and everyone was pushed to the max. Kim was able to jump right in and take charge when we most needed it.”
