“The SHRM Foundation is pleased to welcome Mark Schmit. As an accomplished HR practitioner, he understands the needs and interests of the human resource industry and its professionals,” said James Schultz, HR general manager for the Chevron Corp., and chair designate for the 2013 SHRM Foundation Board of Directors. “Mark’s valuable knowledge and experience will guide the Foundation as it serves the profession through thought leadership, educational support and research.”
Prior to joining SHRM, Schmit was western regional vice president at APTMetrics in Denver.

I am very excited and enthusiastic to be joining the Foundation and helping to move it to the next level of excellence.”
