San Jose, Calif. — July 27
RiseSmart, a provider of outplacement services, recently announced that China Gorman, former chief operating officer of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), has been appointed to the company’s strategic advisory council.
“China is one of the foremost thought leaders in the field of human resources today; she is also an accomplished executive with significant experience in career transition services,” said Sanjay Sathe, founder and CEO of RiseSmart. “We look forward to her strategic contributions as we continue to increase our share of the $3 billion outplacement market.”
Gorman has held strategic leadership roles in human capital management for more than 25 years. Prior to joining SHRM in 2007, Gorman had tenures as president at two of the largest career transition consultancies — DBM North America and Lee Hecht Harrison, where she also served as chief operating officer.
“I am excited to join RiseSmart’s strategic advisory council, because I truly believe this company is transforming corporate outplacement to the benefit of transitioning workers and their employers,” Gorman said.
Gorman travels extensively speaking to business, professional, corporate and academic groups. She serves as chairman of the board of trustees of the Council for Adult and Experiential Learning (CAEL) and is on the board of Jobs for America’s Graduates (JAG).
