Kristie Evans

CEO, HR Logistics, HRPMO Inc. and HRPMO University

Kristie Evans is Founder and CEO/Managing Principal of HR Logistics and HRPMO, as well as a highly sought after management consultant, speaker and educator. Since its founding in 2003, HR Logistics has supported clients through over 120 projects ranging in scope and size. HR Logistics clients’ trust her to advocate for their best interest, provide full transparency and accountability, and drive results in all engagements. This partnership often means HRL is fortunate to work with a client across multiple projects.

Launching HRPMO composed of HRPMO University, HRPMO Talent, and HRPMO as a Service is a natural evolution of her delivery model and her passion to increase HR’s value. By improving operational performance, aligning with business strategies, and increasing stakeholder and customer value using business intelligence, technology, and analytics, the Human Resources function becomes the strategic workforce partner the organization needs. In Kristie’s opinion, the next evolution of Human Capital Management is the movement to Human Capital Risk Management – the addition of risk management capabilities to the tools of Human Resources professionals.
