A.J. O’Connor Associates announced it has formed the Senior Human Resource Advisory Board. The board brings together senior human resource leaders from the top companies in the Tri-state area of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut with the intent of providing a forum to share ideas and discuss business challenges.
"We formed this group to fill a need for a forum for senior human resource executives," said Andrew J. O'Connor III, President of A.J. O'Connor. "We saw an opportunity to bring together senior leaders to enable them to share ideas with each other in a productive setting."
Senior Human Resource Advisory Board members include senior executives from top companies in the healthcare, pharmaceuticals, consumer products and technology industries, including McCann Healthcare, The Nielsen Company, Realogy Corporation and Thermo Fisher Scientific. Members have an average 20 years experience in human resources and currently oversee the human resources function for their company.

"The advisory board provides me with a good network to ensure my company is current in our thinking and practices," said Tim Grace, vice president of human resources and administration at Schindler Elevator Corporation.
