Glassdoor names new CHRO
A controversial review site which can sometimes cause headaches for HR professionals has named its new CHRO, appointing a 25-year industry veteran for the position.

“Glassdoor is disrupting the employment space through greater workplace transparency, putting the power of information into the hands of employees,” said Carmel Galvin, who’s taken the reins.

“I’m thrilled to join a company focused on improving the world of work and the way in which employees and employers connect,” she added.

San Francisco-based Galvin has previously worked in a number of senior HR positions including CHRO for Advent Software, VP of talent and culture for Deloitte, global HRD of Moody’s KMV, and VP of HR for Barra Inc.

“I’m delighted to welcome Carmel Galvin as she brings a wealth of experience and enthusiasm for this role, which is critical to helping Glassdoor scale our People operations globally and stay on the leading edge of talent acquisition, retention and employee satisfaction,” said Glassdoor CEO and co-founder Robert Hohman.

“HR is a vital function at any company and especially at Glassdoor as we have a deep appreciation for the importance and impact that professionals in this field can have in maintaining a great company culture and in supporting the growth of the business,” he added.

Irish-born Galvin received her bachelor’s degree in political science and business from Trinity College Dublin and master’s degree in Business Studies at the University College Dublin’s Smurfit School of Business.
