Share Article

50over50HR Awards, which recognizes career excellence in HR, announces addition of two new judges to help manage the overwhelming positive response to the award.

With over 15 nominees in just 4 months – 50over50HR is starting to get noticed. Launched to focus on individuals who have had, and continue to have, a career-length impact on the practice of HR the award celebrates continuous contribution. While some awards like the ubiquitous “30 under 30” and “40 under 40” awards, focus on a short-term impact, 50over50HR is designed to surface and support people who have spent years supporting, changing and making a difference in Human Resources.

The process for 50over50HR is simple – crowd-sourced nomination vetted by a group of judges with HR experience leading to a monthly featured HR professional and an annual award. Judges serve on a rotating basis. And two new judges are being added to the team.


Today 5over50HR announces the addition of two new judges to continue to bring new points of view to the process.

Tiffany Kuehl, SHRM-CP joins the cast. She is a Sr. Human Resources Recruiter with Versique Consulting & Search’s HR team in Minneapolis. She has 20 years of experience in HR and talent acquisition, spanning hospitality, not-for profit, financial services and manufacturing industries, including publicly and privately held organizations, as well as Fortune 500 companies. In addition she currently serves as the Director-Elect of the Minnesota Society for Human Resource Management (MNSHRM) State Council, held several roles on the board of the Twin Cities Human Resources Association (TCHRA), and sits on the Advisory Board of Minnesota Recruiters (MNREC).

Brad Galin is jumps into the fray… Brad’s HR experience includes policy development and training for International Theme Park Services which included extended assignments in China, Mexico, & Brazil. Brad has crafted HR processes and policies from scratch for and worked in the non-profit arena for Stone Belt and now serves over 1000 employees as the Director of HR for the Portage Public Schools. In addition, Brad currently serves as the Director at Large for the Indiana State Council of SHRM.

The full panel of judges for this initiative include HR luminaries Kris Dunn, Victorio Milian, Sarah Williams, Mary Faulkner and now Brad Galin and Tiffany Kuehl. Each of the judges brings a unique point of view to the discussion and should provide a very interesting set of nominees and recipients.


5oover50HR is designed to recognized HR professionals over the age of 50 who have consistently brought excellence to the profession. According to one of the judges and award process manager Paul Hebert, “The idea of being successful in your 30s or 40s is nice. It takes a lot to stand out in today’s world. But to consistently bring excellence and integrity over an entire career is orders of magnitude more difficult. Yet no one ever hears about those people.”

Addressing the idea that maybe 50 would be considered old, Hebert said; “If I were looking for HR talent in my organization – this is the list I’d be focusing on. These people have shown they can be impressive and drive results over time. And are continuing to do it.”
