The Tolan Group Recruits SVP of HR for One GI

May 3, 2023 – Executive recruiters are in hot pursuit of chief human resources officers and other senior-level HR leaders across the nation. Why such pent-up demand for top-flight HR experts?

Corporate leaders want HR leaders who are sophisticated, proactive, and strategic-minded, with strong business savvy to drive their people capabilities like they would a P&L, according to executive recruiters. CEOs, in particular, want their HR leaders to proactively recommend a host of forward-thinking initiatives that will provide a competitive advantage. The Tolan Group (TTG) recently assisted in the recruitment of Alex Britt as senior vice president of human resources for One GI. Jennifer Chee, principal, led the search.

Mr. Britt is an executive human resources business partner, who has managed all phases of full-cycle employment and employs current human capital practices that attract and retain high-potential talent, said the company. He is experienced with developing executable strategies that motivate teams individually and financially to exceed corporate objectives. Mr. Britt was previously vice president of HR at Vivant Behavioral Healthcare, a behavioral healthcare company that serves clients in residential treatment centers for adolescents, community-based services for clients of all ages, and ABA centers across nine states. Earlier in his career, he was vice president of human resources at Sequel Youth & Family Services, where he led a team of 34 HR professionals that included program management, talent acquisition, total rewards, and HR compliance.
