The Christopher Group has placed Michelle Jones as the new Chief Human Resources Officer at American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP). Located in Bethesda, Maryland, this search was completed by Founder & CEO, Tom Christopher, Recruiting Director, Jeff Wilbanks, and Senior Operations Manager, Matthew Duda.
“Partnering with TCG and Jeff specifically was absolutely fantastic,” said Michelle. “COVID-19 hit during the process and Jeff always kept the dialogue open and honest with what ASHP was thinking. Jeff is different from all the other recruiters I have worked with in the past, as we always had real authentic conversations rather than being treated as a commodity for a placement. It is the reason I recommended TCG to my previous employer to fill my replacement.”
Michelle was previously the Chief Human Capital Officer at Pact and has held other previous senior HR leadership roles at Humentum and Envision EMI.
As the Chief Human Resources Officer at ASHP, Michelle will be a key member of the ASHP Senior Leadership Team to serve as a strategic, innovative, proactive, and best-practice driven thought leader on all human resources-related, and talent acquisition and staff development matters for over 200 ASHP staff members. She will directly align the work with the ASHP Strategic Plan, membership mission, vision, strategic business interests (domestic and international) that support ASHP and the members it serves.
“It was an absolute pleasure to work with Michelle on the ASHP opportunity,” said Jeff. “Michelle brings so much value to an organization as a strategic HR Leader and will be able to make an impact in a short period of time. More importantly, she is a relationship builder and it is easy to see why Michelle has so many champions and glowing reviews. We wish Michelle continued success and will be rooting for her. ”
