Hartnett brings an extensive track record of success in partnering with CIOs to address their strategic challenges, develop strong talent pipelines, and build their brands.
In the wake of robust growth and increased market demand for developing a future-ready IT workforce, Ouellette & Associates (O&A) has hired Erica Hartnett as its new Director of IT Workforce Strategy and Client Initiatives. Hartnett, who will work as a member of the management team, comes to O&A from International Data Corporation (IDC), where she served as CIO Client Partner.
“Erica brings a depth of knowledge and experience in creating value for technology executives at mid-market and Fortune 500 companies that will be pivotal in helping us shape what will become a game-changing role,” says O&A CEO Dan Roberts, of the newly created position. “We know that with O&A’s extensive IT leadership and talent development capabilities, she is going to achieve amazing results with and for our CIO clients.”
Hartnett will be responsible for developing and nurturing client and strategic partner relationships, including serving as the trusted advisor and go-to resource for clients on all things related to workforce strategy. She’ll also be responsible for orchestrating the talents of a dedicated team of colleagues in the seamless delivery of O&A’s IT talent transformation services.
Chief among these is The Technology Leadership Experience (The TechLX), a year-long, cohort-based, multifaceted learning journey for developing IT leadership talent. Recently named by CIO.com as a “Top 10 IT leadership development program,” The TechLX elevates IT leaders higher and faster up the maturity curve by building the confidence, competence, commitment, and consistency needed to meet the demands of today’s economy.
According to Roberts, “The best CIOs are one hundred percent committed to building and executing a workforce strategy that is more holistic, differentiated, and data driven. These talent builders are laser focused on knowing, growing, engaging, retaining, and attracting top talent.”
Hartnett brings to O&A an extensive track record of success in partnering with CIOs to help them achieve their workforce strategy and build a talent brand that retains and attracts the best people.
“My passion is helping CIOs and other technology executives address their strategic challenges, develop strong talent pipelines, and build their brands,” says Hartnett. “I’m excited to leverage O&A’s robust capabilities and partner with our clients on their initiatives. I’m also looking forward to exploring how we can continue to adapt and grow our services to meet their evolving needs.”
