Transition at the SHRM Foundation

Reuse Permissions
Executive Director Mark Schmit has announced his retirement from the SHRM Foundation and will transition out of the position in April. Mark has lead the SHRM Foundation since October 2013, and during his tenure he lead the SHRM Foundation's thought leadership initiative, the SHRM Foundation's 50th anniversary, and our current transition to a new strategy focused on empowering HR professionals to build inclusive organizations.

We are grateful for Mark's leadership and will continue to champion workplace and workforce transformation for many years to come because of the foundation he built. 

During the transition, the two senior SHRM Foundation staff members will remain at the SHRM Foundation and continue to move the new strategy forward in Mark's absence. Beth McFarland, director of programs, will serve as acting executive director during the transition and Ashlee Smith, development director, will continue to lead our fundraising efforts.
