Executive recruiters are in hot pursuit of chief human resources officers (CHRO) and other senior level HR leaders across the nation. The best HR chiefs are seen as integral strategic advisors to the C-suite and the ones in demand are those who are sounding boards for CEOs. Why such pent up demand for top flight HR experts?
According to executive recruiters, corporate leaders are hiring more like-minded sophisticated, proactive, strategic HR individuals with strong business savvy to drive their people capabilities just as they would a P&L.
The recruitment of these executives continues to be critical for companies. In the latest instance: Hanold Associates placed Toni Spinazzola as CHRO of Miami-based Harvard Maintenance, a top-ranked managed services provider. Jason Hanold, CEO and co-managing partner of the recruitment firm, led the search.
Ms. Spinazzola will report to Stanley Doobin, owner and president of Harvard Maintenance, and Nathalie Doobin, owner, president and CEO of Harvard Services Group and Harvard Enterprise Risk Solutions. As CHRO, Ms. Spinazzola will design, execute and lead the human resource capabilities and strategies to align with Harvard’s business plans, growth needs, culture and core values. She is also expected to play a critical role in driving Harvard’s vision, mission and values throughout the enterprise.
