CHICAGO (December 13, 2016) – Interpublic Group (NYSE: IPG) agency Golin announced Carrie Galli as the new executive director of human resources to lead global HR, and help drive forward the company’s ambition to be the defining agency of the decade. She officially began this role on October 31 in Golin’s Chicago headquarter office and reports to Gary Rudnick, president of the Americas.
Galli brings more than fifteen years of HR experience to Golin, most recently working at Edelman where she served as senior vice president of global learning and development. Previously, she spent a decade at FCB in a variety of HR roles. At Golin, Carrie leads the agency’s global HR function, including generalist HR, recruiting, Diversity & Inclusion and Learning & Development.
“Golin is an agency that continues to stay ahead of the industry curve, especially when it comes to culture,” says Galli. “I’m excited to help continue their bold trajectory toward stronger talent management, employee development and recruitment, because Golin isn’t afraid to take risks. Especially when it means they have the opportunity to do what is best for their people and their business.”
“Golin is the relevance agency, and we’re thrilled that Carrie could join our team at a time when making our clients more relevant couldn’t be more critical to our business,” explains Rudnick. “We’ve cemented our proprietary tools, methodology and partnerships and now will rely on Carrie’s expertise to oversee programs that will help further enhance our workplace culture and our staff’s development opportunities.”
Galli also helps champion Golin’s industry-leading employee benefits program, Life Time, which launched earlier this year to offer first-of-its-kind policies for unlimited time off, enhanced family care, extended health & wellness and work-from-anywhere flexibility.
She holds a B.A. in Psychology and Legal Studies from Ithaca College as well as a Masters degree in Organizational Psychology from the Chicago School of Professional Psychology.
