Managing Partner: Human Capital– BlackRain Partners
Wendy has a keen sense for HR practices that manage business risk, respect people and attract top talent. This has been acquired through years of HR experience in companies of different business categories, sizes, and ownership types.
She has a master’s degree in human resources and master’s in health care administration. Wendy offers BlackRain Partners’ clients honest, open, business-minded consulting with a sense of urgency. She guides them through change management, recruiting and talent management, benefits, cost control and employee relations. She is highly skilled at assessing organizational roles, processes and procedures, and extremely passionate about Strategic Human Resources, which means analyzing the big picture and delivering sound solutions that address real-business issues.
But, her focus always remains on the bottom line.
Before joining BlackRain Partners as the Managing Partner of Human Capital Strategies in 2012, Wendy directed change management and HR in national and international companies – often during critical growth periods, such as mergers and acquisitions. As exp US consolidated 30 companies under one brand, she ensured HR programs and services were consistent and accessible to all employees throughout the highly diversified and decentralized engineering firm. She also implemented 401(k) risk strategies and a sustainable health-insurance structure. These efforts significantly reduced voluntary turnover from a high of 19.5 percent to 8.8 percent.
When not meeting the business needs of clients, Wendy can be found volunteering with the Seminole Advisory Board Council, Shepherd’s Hope Program Committee, The Greater Sanford Regional Chamber of Commerce, the Young Entrepreneurs Academy (YEA) @ the Oviedo-Winter Springs Chamber of Commerce.
