Jennifer Briskin has been named chief people officer at customer experience agency Definition 6, the Atlanta- and New York-based company said. She will work closely with Definition 6 CEO Jeff Katz and President Jason Rockman in her new role, integrating businesses and culture through instituting diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) initiatives as well as talent development, human capital strategies and employee wellbeing practices.
“Jennifer is an HR rockstar,” said Katz in a statement. “She is constantly in innovation mode and the perfect leader to help steer the next chapter of D6 as we continue to evolve and grow. Her track record of structurally organizing companies and priming them for success always starts with the people, as she has a special gift for energizing individuals and teams alike, with a shared purpose.”
“I am fortunate to inherit a talented team that’s hungry to learn. A passion that trickles down from the top,” said Briskin, also in a statement. “There is a wonderful synergy with the executive team at D6. It is something that doesn’t happen often and because of that, I sense we will be able to climb any mountain. It’s why I knew I had to say yes.”
Prior to joining Definition 6, Briskin was president of HR Innovations, Inc., a strategic organizational development and human resource consulting firm she founded in 1999. During that time, she facilitated more than 25 company acquisitions, directed international client groups across multiple global cities for up to 5000 employees, and served as interim chief human resources officer for multiple businesses.
Following an early career in corporate communications and public relations, Briskin segued into the world of human resources as an HR executive at Tupperware, followed by a lengthy tenure as human resources manager at General Electric.
