In these complex and demanding positions, held largely at a global financial services firm, she developed significant experience and expertise creating and executing business strategy, managing global operations, leading projects, facilitating change, developing people, building teams, and synthesizing information to deliver outstanding results.

Over and over, Randi was called upon to jump in, stabilize, and lead operations in transition.
Possessing a unique combination of business and people skills, Randi then transitioned to JPMC’s HR function. She moved from a generalist to a senior project manager in the HR space, and earned her Six Sigma Black Belt certification managing large-scale process improvement projects. She was named HR Service Delivery (HRSD) quality leader following the JPMorgan Chase merger. Randi spent 8 years in HRSD at JPMC, including leading a strategic business management team that drove infrastructure functions and project initiatives across a global organization during two mergers.
Throughout her career, Randi has been recognized as a terrific coach and mentor, and an excellent facilitator and communicator, interests stemming from her early experience as an English major at Tufts University. She is also a graduate of the Smith College Executive Education for Women program; Randi was selected to attend this program while at JPMC in recognition of her strengths as a leader.
