The National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) has announced that chief people officer Holly Clark (pictured below) will retire from the association on 3 January, 2019 after more than 12 years of service.
During her time, Clark oversaw all aspects of NBAA’s human resources operation, including employee recruitment and hiring, training, benefits management and compensation and policy development.
“Holly brought these leadership experiences, and a host of other assets, to her focused implementation of HR best practices at NBAA,” said association president and chief executive officer, Ed Bolen.
“Her work has touched upon benefits we all relate to, including medical care, performance-based compensation and retirement savings.
Bolen noted that for her work in NBAA’s retirement-benefits area, Clark was recognised as 2017 Plan Fiduciary of the Year by AFS 401(k) Retirement Services.
“From the professional excellence of our staff, to the quality of our training, benefits and more, Holly has been instrumental in helping make NBAA the world-class association it is today,” Bolen added.
In addition to her professional certification as a SHRM-SCP, Clark has in the past held Certified Compensation Professional (CCP) and Senior Professional in Human Resources (SPHR) certifications.
She received her Bachelor of Arts in psychology with distinction and with honor from Mount Holyoke College. She also has completed graduate coursework at Harvard University and at the State University of New York in Albany.
“Holly helped set the bar high at NBAA with standards for professionalism, and in handling all aspects of our human resources programs with great expertise, commitment, and concern for our employees,” Bolen concluded. “Simply put, Holly has laid a remarkable foundation for us to build upon – our people, processes and culture are a reflection of, and tribute to, Holly’s commitment to excellence.”
