Cleveland-based IPA 100 firm CBIZ has named Gretchen Farrell as its new chief human resources officer. She succeeds Terri Bur, who retired at the end of 2020 after 25 years with the firm.
Farrell joins CBIZ from Alternate Solutions Health Network in Dayton, Ohio, where she served as the chief human resources officer since 2019. She has previously held top HR leadership roles at The Orvis Company in Sunderland, Vt., and at Lincoln Electric Holdings in Cleveland, where she had a tenure of more than 18 years.
“Gretchen brings a focus on strategy that will be critical for our business in this time of growth,” says president and CEO Jerry Grisko. “She is an experienced leader who has driven change and led transformation in a variety of organizations and settings. Gretchen’s experience and approach will be invaluable as we position CBIZ for the future.”
