For more than 25 years, China has held strategic leadership roles in the human capital management sector. 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. CEO of the CMG Group, a consultancy serving solutions providers in the human capital management sector, she is a sought-after speaker and thought leader in the broad human resources marketplace.
Most recently China was Chief Operating Officer of SHRM (the Society for Human Resource management). Additionally she was President of DBM North America, and Global 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 North America and globally – speaking to business, professional, corporate and academic groups on topics related to the strategic value of HR, culture and engagement, career management and implementing effective people management strategies.
Recently appointed to the Strategic Advisory Council of RiseSmart (www.RiseSmart.com) in San Jose, CA, she also serves as Board Chair for the Chicago based Council for Adult and Experiential Learning (www.cael.org) and on the board of Jobs for America’s Graduates (www.jag.org), headquartered in Alexandria, VA. 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.
