John Reing has been named chief human resources officer (CHRO). In partnership with sector and corporate leadership, Reing will be responsible for developing and executing the company’s integrated human resources strategy, including talent acquisition and management, total rewards, leadership development, and employee relations.

Most recently Reing was a partner within PwC’s Organizational and Workforce Transformation Practice where he advised the company’s global clients across a broad spectrum of human resources- and talent-related topics in order to maximize value creation.
