About the Competition

Since its inception, the HR Executive of the Year award has been presented to 19 recipients, while 40 individuals have been named to the HR Honor Roll.

A panel of five judges reviewed this year's submissions and based their selections on the following criteria: the candidate's ability to handle significant problems in the human resource field, the candidate's role and/or success in establishing the HR function as an integral part of his or her organization, the candidate's management skills as demonstrated within the HR function and the candidate's contributions to the HR profession.

Judges for this year's contest included Joan Crockett, senior vice president of HR at Allstate Insurance Co. and winner of the 1997 HR Executive of the Year award; Dennis Donovan, former executive vice president of human resources at Home Depot and the 2003 HR Executive of the Year winner; Fred Foulkes, director of the Human Resource Policy Institute and professor of management policy at the Boston University School of Management; Dr. Jac Fitz-enz, president of the Human Capital Source; and David Shadovitz, editor-in-chief of Human Resource Executive®.
