Director, Human Resources, Dentsu Aegis Network
Certificate in Human Resources Management 2011
During my undergraduate studies at York University, I decided to concurrently pursue a Professional Certificate in Human Resource Management from York’s School of Human Resource Management. Toward the end of my final year at York, I saw a posting on York’s online Career Centre. Feeling that the position and company culture were a perfect fit for my current studies and career aspirations, I applied. That first temporary position led me on an exciting career path traversing across different areas within talent/HR.
I began my career at LoyaltyOne, supporting the company’s recruitment and talent management efforts to taking on a hybrid role that gave me exposure to business partnering, a variety of HR projects, as well as International HR. I continued to move progressively into more senior roles, until being promoted to the role of Manager, HR Business Partner supporting the AIR MILES Rewards Program.
After almost 6 years at LoyaltyOne|AIR MILES, I decided to try something new in the pursuit of gaining different company and industry experience, so I moved on as the HR Manager, People & Culture at Holt Renfrew supporting their corporate teams. Shortly after, I moved into my current role as Director, Human Resources at the Dentsu Aegis Network. In this role, I am focused on understanding business objectives and needs, and providing knowledge of HR services and strategic talent solutions to the business. It is exciting to be working at one of the largest multinational media and digital marketing communications companies. Dentsu Aegis operates in 145 countries and with 50,000+ associates globally, which translates to a ton of exciting talent/HR and growth opportunities.
With the benefit of hindsight, enrolling in York’s program in Human Resource Management was one of the wisest choices I have made. I am grateful for my education and to those who have supported my development. I am looking forward to the challenges and learning opportunities that are ahead.
