Head of Human Resources
Zurich North America
Since joining Zurich four years ago, Brian Little has helped the organization become significantly more agile and effective as it reduced size and overhead but stayed profitable.
Little's team provides human-capital strategy, talent management, learning, employee relations, and HR policy management for Zurich and its 8,000 employees. The group also serves as the interface to global recruiting, HR information systems, HR operations, benefits, and compensation.
Brian brings many tremendous assets to the table, because he has expertise in leadership development, executive coaching, recruiting, learning, diversity, and strategy. He also has extensive HR experience across four different industries — gas and electric utilities, petroleum, telephony, and financial services.
Little is a 2012 CareerFOCUS Eagle Award winner who says that one of the pillars of business success is to "Consistently nurture and leverage diversity, because it is good for customers, shareholders, employees, and the community."
