Dennis is one of the founding fathers of modern HR and one of the 2-3 best to ever carry the CHRO title. He’s been a stellar CEO consigliere, a turnaround expert, a thought leader and a renowned HR operator. He was one of the early pioneers in using meaningful people analytics to directly drive business outcomes and has long been considered a master at working through complex Labor issues. Along the way, Dennis mentored and developed countless HR professionals into leading CHROs and had a meaningful imprint on today’s HR landscape. I’ve been fortunate to call Dennis a friend, mentor, and thought partner for the past 15 years!
