Tammy redefined the standards of what best practice HR leadership in a globally operating enterprise ought to look like. Some of her best qualities: 

(a) Always translating corporate/legal policies into commercially viable operating procedures
(b) Continuously holding herself and others accountable for maintaining high work ethics and standards
(c) Understanding cultural differences and adjusting actions accordingly/never applying a “one-size-fits-all” solution
(d) Respectfully challenging orthodoxies and the status quo both with peers and superiors
(e) Being an amazing two-way communicator with Talent

What impressed me the most about Tammy is her outstanding personality, and her highly trustworthy and always positive attitude.

Tammy is an exceptional leader with the ability to connect to employees at all levels in the organization. I reported under Tammy in my role with Whirlpool/KitchenAid. Tammy is consistent and committed to having ongoing communication, providing feedback and keeping a focus on the team's development. She leads by example in keeping recognition in the forefront so that top achievers feel appreciated and rewarded for their work. Tammy is always in tune with what is happening in each of our regions and is there to support us but also allows us the room to drive the strategy into our businesses in the way that makes sense for our team. She has great business acumen and ensures that she passes that knowledge down to the team. I am glad to be a part of Tammy's Global Leadership team.
