Jun 12, 2019 | Atlanta, GA

DHR International’s Managing Partner Ed Flowers hosted a breakfast panel to discuss the emerging trend of CHROs on Boards and how it impacts CHROs.

This event, hosted at the Buckhead Club of Atlanta, was Moderated by Ed, and featured four panelists:

  • Coretha Rushing – Retired SVP & CHRO of Equifax and Current Board Director of 2U, Skip Spriggs - President & CEO of The Executive Leadership Council, former SVP & CHRO at TIAA and Current Board
  • Director, ProSight Global, Inc., Tim Crow - Former EVP & CHRO of Home Depot and Current Board
  • Director of Milacron, and fellow DHR Managing Partner Mike Magsig, of the Board & CEO Practice

About 50 senior-level HR executives attended the event, with several prominent companies in attendance, including chief HR executives of UPS, the Weather Channel, the Atlanta Braves, Carters, XPO Logistics, Diebold Nixdorf and Churches Chicken, to name a few.

The panelists touched on several topics about the value-add of CHROs on boards, the changes created as a result of bringing HR executives into boards and the training and capabilities that senior HR executives need to have to be considered for a board position.

The CHRO Breakfast and Panel was a major success and put DHR in front of many reputable CHROs at key companies in the Atlanta area.

“This an important topic and puts DHR in the forefront of this discussion,” said Ed Flowers. “This event put us on the map in Atlanta. Now we must leverage this event for BD and greater search opportunity.”

Ed would like to thank the panelists, his fellow Atlanta DHR Partners and all of the DHR and Jobplex personnel who attended and assisted with this event.

“This event was a result of great teamwork from DHR marketing and my HR practice colleagues,” said Ed. “The key to success was having an all-star panel that articulated the significant changes taking place on boards and provided insight to help HR executives evolve in their roles.”

This networking breakfast and panel for CHROs was a great way for DHR to exhibit expertise in the HR practice and network with community leaders.
