One association executive and three senior HR leaders were welcomed into the academy by their peers in recognition of their level of achievement, including Timothy Bartl, executive vice president, general counsel and secretary of the HR Policy Association and CEO of the Center on Executive Compensation; Peter M. Fasolo, executive vice president and chief human resources officer at Johnson & Johnson; Donna Morris, executive vice president for customer and employee experience  at Adobe Systems Inc.;  and Christine Pambianchi, senior vice president of human resources for Corning Inc.

The NAHR’s first class of Fellows was inducted 25 years earlier. To acknowledge the milestone, six members of the founding committee who were present at the induction ceremony were asked to stand and be recognized.

To date, with the addition of its 2017 class, 172 individuals have been named Fellows of the NAHR.

Tim Bartl joined the HR Policy Association as its assistant general counsel and vice president of corporate affairs in 1997, when it was known as the Labor Policy Association. He’s been instrumental in expanding the association beyond employment policy into areas such as healthcare and executive comp. At the Center on Executive Compensation, he oversees operations, policy and federal advocacy activities and has played a key role in growing its “subscribers” over the past 10 years from 26 to 134.

Peter Fasolo joined Johnson & Johnson in 2004, after 13 years in management at Bristol-Myers Squibb. Under his leadership, J&J has transformed its approach to HR strategy and service delivery by establishing a global network of shared services. He also has played a key role in leveraging analytics capabilities to better align J&J’s talent and innovation strategies. During his tenure, the company has been able to place internal successors in 80 percent of all senior-management positions.

Donna Morris joined Adobe 15 years ago. She has played a key role in reshaping virtually every aspect of Adobe’s employee experience over that period and, in 2015, her responsibilities were expanded to include the customer experience. Morris is a champion of diversity, and is responsible for  developing cutting-edge benefits aimed at attracting and retaining talent. She’s a member of the board of directors at the Society for Human Resource Management.

Christine Pambianchi joined Corning in 2000 as a division HR manager and has led the company’s global HR function since 2008. Among her achievements are creating a Talent Management Center of Excellence, expanding Corning’s MBA recruiting process at core schools and enhancing the company’s leadership-development curriculum. Her efforts in the area of diversity has led to increases in the number of women, African-Americans and other minorities in leadership roles—39 percent, 17 percent and 83 percent respectively.

Next year’s annual dinner and installation ceremony is scheduled for Nov. 8.
