Kim brings exceptional insight into the realm of human resources and human capital planning. She was instrumental in preparing my company as we transitioned from a small business into a middle market company; transforming our human capital plan which made us more efficient and effective. Kim is a 'no-holds-barred' advisor who can bring forth the brutal facts with compassion.

Kim provided Executive HR leadership to Materia for approximately one year. In that time, she conducted a comprehensive Organization and HR Assessment. Based on this assessment, she implemented core HR processes, including performance management, incentive compensation plans, and a market-based compensation job-banding structure. She also partnered with me to realign the organization structure, establishing focused Commercial, Technology, and Operations functions along with upgrading talent in key executive leadership positions. We maintained a cohesive partnership in which I trusted her expertise, insights and pragmatic approach.

Kim functioned as the interim Chief Human Resources Officer of our company for ten months. During that time, she successfully positioned Human Resources as a strategic function within the organization. She was instrumental in designing and leading many of our organization-wide change initiatives, including performance management, organization design, reward programs, and employee communication initiatives. Her efforts have laid the foundation for continued organization growth and talent development. I relied on her sound judgment and advice on many topics.

Kim was an integral member of our Executive Team for approximately six months, in which time the company was sold to an India-based global agrochemicals firm. She was a core member of our Global Integration team, focused on HR Function deliverables. These efforts included Compensation design initiatives, such as Retention, Incentive, and Severance as well as mapping and recommendation of core HR processes. She also provided ongoing HR Leadership to execute the company’s annual Talent Management, Performance Management and Compensation Planning processes.
