After serving as chair of the WashingtonExec Strategic Human Capital Council since 2014, Steve Woolwine is now stepping down from his role.
As a member of the council since 2012, Woolwine brought in and moderated dozens of programs with a broad mission of helping executives be more efficient and collaborative with their peers.
Woolwine and the council hosted external business panel topics such as effectively working with the C-suite, regional workforce pipeline predictions, and M&A employee messaging. Internal corporate programming topics included veteran workforce assimilation, navigating generational workforce cultures, and cost-effective human capital technology.
Woolwine serves as senior vice president of human resources at AECOM and is responsible for driving the business strategy and alignment of human capital. With over 20 years of experience, he has led organizations in a variety of industries, specializing in leadership development, mergers/acquisitions, talent acquisition, employee relations and compensation planning and design.
Woolwine was instrumental in the transition process when URS was acquired by AECOM in 2014. He originally joined URS in 2011 as part of the Apptis, Inc. acquisition, serving as the senior vice president of HR and recruiting.
“It is important for human capital professionals to have a forum at the executive level in order to exchange ideas and best practices,” Woolwine said. “The group is unique and a great support system for the challenges and opportunities that relate to the federal contractor workforce. I am proud of what we have accomplished in the past couple of years and look forward to supporting the council in the future.”
WashingtonExec CEO and founder JD Kathuria thanked Woolwine for his role on the council.
“We thank Steve for his leadership over the past couple years,” Kathuria said. “Human capital executives are often the front liaisons between the C-suite, internal employees, client-facing team members and benefits vendors. We look forward to building out the council in the years to come.”
Each participating government contracting company sponsors an HR executive and nominates one critical talent individual for this WashingtonExec council. This one-of-a-kind group provides HR leaders the opportunity to help develop the next generation of HR leadership while building their own networks.
