Harris Associates

Harris Associates has retained  Hanold Associates for their Chief Human Resources Officer search. Ashley Schiele and Kile Hanold are leading the search for the role based in Chicago, Illinois.

Founded in 1976, Harris Associates creates and manages a wide range of investment portfolios for individuals and institutions worldwide. Harris Associates also serves as an advisor to the Oakmark Funds, a mutual fund family established in 1991 for individuals and families, institutions and financial professionals.

Harris Associates currently has around $120 billion in assets under management and serves a growing roster of global clients. They are owned by Natixis Investment Managers, a French financial firm, but still maintain autonomy over their operations. The organization has nearly 200 employees and operates out of its headquarters in downtown Chicago.

The Chief Human Resources Officer (CHRO) will oversee management of Harris Associates’ most important asset—its people. Reporting to the president of Harris Associates, the CHRO will work closely with the executive leadership team and operating committee to lead all Human Resources activities. This leader will align and scale a proactive and strategic HR function to meet the ongoing growth demands of the business. Leading a team of six HR professionals and four office service professionals, the CHRO will be responsible for developing, implementing and managing human resources best practices, while maintaining high talent, engagement, performance and culture goals.
