Dear Colleagues,

I am pleased to announce the appointment of Lisa Seales to the role of Executive Director for Talent Services. Many of you may already know Lisa as she has been with Columbia for over 15 years in various roles across the University. Most recently, Lisa was a CUHR Client Manager for 5 years where her clients included CUIT, Finance, the Provost’s Office and Research Administration. Prior to her role in CUHR, Lisa served as the Director of Human Resources at Columbia College where she managed all aspects of the HR function. Before working at the College, she held other roles within the University, including working within CUHR on Training and Development initiatives, and started her career at Columbia at the Business School. Lisa holds a B.A from Wheaton College and a M.A.,Organizational Psychology from Columbia University - Teachers College.

Lisa’s most recent role in CUHR as CUIT’s Client Manager, coupled with her breadth of HR experience across the University, make her uniquely qualified for this role. She has been instrumental in the development of several of our recent Talent Management initiatives and has been a champion of CUIT and the work that we do, positioning her to continue to build on the Talent Services portfolio.  

Lisa will join us effective July 3rd. She will be working with Denise in the coming weeks to ensure a seamless transition for the many functions that her role performs, including working with Jessica on communications and the other responsibilities involved with being a member of SLT. Please join me in welcoming Lisa to the CUIT team!

Regards,

Gaspare
