January 18, 2021

I’d like to start by welcoming new members, KenCrest and Infosys, to the HRO Today Association community! I’m also pleased to mention that Achievers has become the latest HRO Today Certified Provider – well done! This certification ensures customers have access to qualified service providers in the HR services and technology industry. [expand title=”Read full letter here“]

We experienced increased engagement in the Association during the last quarter of 2020, which continues into the new year. Commitment to our Global Board of Advisors remains strong, with our EMEA and APAC groups experiencing the most growth. Getting involved with the Board of Advisors is a great opportunity for maximizing membership engagement and benefits and also serves as a personal forum for best practice sharing, networking, learning and leadership. I’m delighted to welcome the following executives:

  • Rick Goh, Senior Director, APAC Human Resources, Gates Corporation (APAC)
  • Simon Bradberry, VP of Operations & BD, EMEA, Allegis Global Solutions (EMEA)
  • Su Corkeron, HR Director MENA, Weatherford (EMEA)
  • Anjali Pendlebury-Green, VP & Global Head of Digital Operation Practice, Capgemini (EMEA)
  • Anne Bucher, Senior Vice President, Global Experience, Cielo (North America)
  • Brad Dever, Managing Director, RPO Solutions, Allegis Global Solutions (North America)
  • John DiPietro, Senior Vice President, Client Solutions, Hudson RPO (North America)
  • Laura Trollope, Vice President, Global Total Talent Solutions, Randstad Sourceright (North America)

You can also connect directly with other members and raise your profile in the community by dedicating just an hour a month to a committee. This is a valued role that supports the growth of the Association, and I’d like to thank our newest members for their participation:

  • Mike Brann, Director, Business Development, Broadleaf Results
  • Karen Feeney, Vice President, Organizational Development, KenCrest
  • Brielle Heflebower, Senior Marketing Specialist, AMN Healthcare
  • Cristine Kane, VP Solution Design & Technology Innovation, Hudson RPO
  • Suzie Mitchell, Vice President, Client Delivery, Broadleaf Results
  • Rose Rutledge, Director, Client Services, Yoh

I challenge all members to become more engaged in 2021 – it’s rewarding personally, and the involvement has a positive impact on your organization. Start by showcasing your thought leadership on our global stage: shine the spotlight on a successful initiative or talk through how you conquered a challenging situation by presenting a 20- or 30-minute livestream. Contact Wendy Metzgar, Director of Membership Services, at to propose your topic. We are now scheduling programs throughout 2021.

As always, I’d like to thank our members for their continued participation and support. Exciting things planned for 2021 – stay tuned!
