Knowledge Infusion, a leading provider of strategic advisory and consulting services focused on HR, talent management, and emerging technology solutions today announces that Cassie Fireman, SPHR will join the leadership team as Chief Performance Officer. In this newly created position, Cassie will be responsible for ensuring optimal performance of people, process, and technology linked to customer satisfaction and financial objectives. With her deep practitioner experience, Cassie will also consult with Knowledge Infusion clients to help them transform their HR function as she has done herself.
With over 15 years of HR and talent management experience, Cassie will lead the human resources, operations, and service delivery functions of Knowledge Infusion to ensure optimal performance and alignment with overall strategic company objectives. In her new role, Fireman will be able to measure the impact that Knowledge Infusion talent is having on overall business goals and objectives.
Cassie was most recently Vice President of Talent at Echelon Resorts where she was responsible for developing the organizational visions and strategies for the $4.8 billion dollar resort in Las Vegas.

"As Chief Performance Officer, Cassie will have a clear view into the levers that are driving our own performance," said Jason Averbook, CEO of Knowledge Infusion. "She will ensure that as we grow we maintain the highest service levels and are one of the best places to work in the industry, while measuring and monitoring our key financial objectives. Cassie is one of the most strategic HR leaders that I know. We are thrilled to welcome her to the KI family and very excited about the impact she will have both internally and with clients."
"HR has traditionally had a disconnect in understanding the relationship between how people perform and how the business performs," said Fireman. "Whether you are a 15,000 person organization or a 50 person organization, the principles of measurement and performance stand true. Knowledge Infusion is full of the greatest talent and passion in the industry and I am looking forward to working with clients to drive their success, and ensuring that we become leaders and innovators in our own HR and talent management practices."
