Alexandria, Va. – The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) has appointed G. “Ravi” Ravindran as managing director of the society’s subsidiary company in India, Strategic Human Resource Management India Private Limited (SHRMI). The society is the leading voice of the human resource profession, representing the interests of more than 245,000 professional and student members from around the world.
“We look forward to Ravi’s strategic insight and operational leadership as we expand our commitment to the India market and the HR profession there,” said Brian J. Glade, SPHR, GPHR, who is SHRM’s vice president of international programs.
“Building on the solid foundation established by his predecessor, Nina Woodard, SPHR, GPHR, he will help us deliver on new opportunities for growth and impact within the HR community. We are excited to have him leading our India team."
Ravindran will be responsible for managing and expanding all activities and business operations of SHRMI, including its relationships with clients, business partners and employees. He will also serve on the group’s board of directors.
A key challenge is establishing partnerships with educational institutions, government and policy makers, and creating a brand identity for SHRMI as the premier association for HR professionals in India.
