Jackson Hole Group, LLC Welcomes Cathy Unruh as a New Principal

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Jan 8, 2013) - Jackson Hole Group, LLC (JHG), an executive-level consultancy firm that counsels CEOs, Boards and C-suite executives on the critical business and organizational challenges they face, is pleased to welcome Cathy Unruh as its newest principal. In her role, Unruh will support large organizational change initiatives, HR strategy and transformation efforts and will advise CEOs, senior HR and senior executives.

"What attracted me to the firm is their unique approach to business and HR consulting," says Unruh. "The firm looks at talent and organizational issues through the lens of business strategy. They don't provide off the shelf programmed solutions. Rather, they probe to understand a company's needs and tailor solutions to address those needs."

Unruh's experience lends tremendous value to this consulting approach at JHG. She has spent more than 20 years in high-level HR positions in international organizations, working for Levi Strauss and Company, where she most recently served as Chief Human Resources Officer, Global Human Resources, and Gap, Inc., where she held the roles of Vice President Human Resources, International and Vice President Human Resources, Corporate Human Resources and Strategy. In both companies, she was known as a visionary and pragmatic HR executive with the ability to drive complex organizational change.

At Levi Strauss, Unruh was responsible for the apparel firm's worldwide HR function with regional headquarters in San Francisco, Brussels and Singapore, and offices in 42 countries. She collaborated with the CEO and executive team to determine vision and strategy, and designed and led initiatives that transformed business and human resource operations.

"Companies that are growing are dynamic and embrace change," Unruh explains. "What works well today may not work a year or two from now. You have to continually assess your business model and talent requirements to ensure relevancy to where the business is headed. I am very comfortable with change, and excited to leverage my expertise and experience to help and support others in being successful in their roles."

"We are very excited to have Cathy joining our firm," says Jim Wiggett, CEO of JHG. "Her experience in creating business results and in understanding the strategic implications of organizational work compliments the work our firm does in these arenas. Cathy's strategic mind and practical style will add value to our client work immediately."
