Alexandria, Va. – The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) announces that attorney and human resource professional J. Robert Carr has been appointed chief global communications and marketing officer.
He will lead a new division merging SHRM’s marketing, public affairs, government relations, and organizational communications.
The appointment marks a return to SHRM for Carr who previously served as chief professional and business development officer until he departed two years ago to become executive director of the National Bar Association. Carr’s executive leadership while at SHRM also includes former roles as chief human resource and strategic planning officer and chief ethics officer. Carr also previously led SHRM’s diversity initiatives.
Henry G. (Hank) Jackson, SHRM’s president and CEO, said of the appointment:
“Bob Carr’s experience is exactly what SHRM and its member’s need—he brings executive vision, leadership in the for-profit and non-profit sectors, practical training and HR skills, and the unique experience of having worked for SHRM previously. His leadership experience beyond SHRM paired with past experience leading operations for SHRM conferences, seminars, and educational programs provides him the insight to design offerings that address modern business issues.”
Carr’s executive experience also includes previous positions with some of the most powerful lobbying organizations in Washington, D.C. He served as senior director for strategic planning and human resources at the Association of Trial Lawyers of America (now the American Association for Justice). He also served on the executive team of the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP), and as director of AARP’s human resource group and its volunteer resource center.
“SHRM is a great organization and I am pleased to have the opportunity to return at this time,” said Carr.
Prior to joining SHRM the first time, Carr was a principal of Carr & Associates LLC, a law firm specializing in employment law.
Carr’s education includes a bachelor of arts degree in economics from Morehouse College, a juris doctor from Columbia University Law School, and a masters of laws degree from Georgetown University Law Center.
