For more than 25 years, China has held strategic leadership roles in the human capital management industry. Her expertise in business strategy, market-share growth and new business development together with her people and results oriented leadership style have enabled her to successfully lead global organizations through turnarounds and rapid growth cycles, as well as through business slowdowns, with exceptional results.
China is the former Chief Operating Officer for the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM). The Society represents nearly 250,000 individual members in over 140 countries, and has a network of more than 1,000 affiliated chapters in the U.S., as well as operations in India and China.
Prior to joining SHRM in 2007 as COO, China was President of DBM North America, and President of Lee Hecht Harrison, the $250 million global consulting division of Adecco, which became the performance leader in its industry under her leadership.
China has traveled extensively—throughout the United States and abroad—addressing business, professional, corporate and academic groups on topics related to the strategic value of HR, culture, career management and implementing effective people management strategies. She currently serves on the boards of the Chicago-based Council for Adult and Experiential Learning (CAEL) and Jobs for America’s Graduates (JAG).
A native Midwesterner, China earned a bachelor’s degree from Principia College in Elsah, Illinois and has completed significant post-graduate work in Organizational Development.
