Following a record-breaking year of recruiting top HR leadership into some of the best known brands across the industry, Hanold Associates has just been tapped by the National Football League (NFL) to lead its search for a new chief human resources officer (CHRO). Jason Hanold, CEO and managing partner of the Chicago-based recruiting firm that bears his name, is leading the assignment which kicked off just days before Super Bowl LIII.
The incoming leader will oversee all of the NFL’s HR functions including organizational design, leadership development, learning, benefits, compensation, employee and labor relations, HR operations, talent acquisition, and talent development. The right candidate will bring 20+ years of operating, financial and people leadership experience in consumer-centric, well-branded organizations.
Jason recently sat down with Hunt Scanlon Media to discuss the search, the importance of the role within the NFL, the supply and demand curve for top HR leaders, and some of his better known CHRO placements.
