PHILADELPHIA, PA – Pulitzer prize-winning, The Philadelphia Inquirer, has appointed Erin Carroll as their new Vice President of Talent. This critical search was led and placed by Managing Director, Pam Noble, and Managing Partner, Ayla Maloney.
“TCG is honored to once again work with the Philadelphia Inquirer as they build out their People and Culture team,” said Pam Noble. It was an amazing opportunity to help build the function with a dynamic and thoughtful talent leader.”
Carroll will lead and advise the company on talent management initiatives, creating a strategy and vision for the company, partner with the People & Culture team on strategies and best practices, lead the company’s learning and development program, work with executives and others throughout the company to advise, advocate, and act to improve workplace culture, including diverse representation at all levels.
“I had such a great experience with The Christopher Group – they were very friendly, transparent, and I felt very well taken care of,” said Ms. Carroll. “The Philadelphia Inquirer and TCG looked at my previous experience and what they were looking for and they did a really nice job matching the skill set. Culturally it was a great fit because I already feel very comfortable connecting with people at The Philadelphia Inquirer and that’s so important to be successful in a new role when trying to understand a new industry, organizational structure, leadership, and expectations – being able to connect with people from a personality perspective and a mission/value perspective allows the work to be easier to be completed and helps with alignment.”
Carrol brings 15+ years of experience to the Philadelphia Inquirer. Her previous held roles include Capital One, WebiMax.com, Concentra, TD University, and most recently she was the Director of Talent Development at Sallie Mae.
