Chief People Officer | Principal
At Henderson, we’ve been putting people first since 1970, so we’ve always been committed to providing an environment that helps our employees reach their full potential. As we continue to grow and foster a dynamic and inclusive workplace, we are proud to have Mindy Garrett as our Chief People Officer and our firm’s top employee relationship builder. She adds unique value to the executive team as a human resources industry veteran, bringing more than two decades of U.S. and international experience. She’s adept at employee engagement, talent development, recruiting, and HR operations, and is passionate about fostering professional and personal success for our employees.
When we set out to fill the CPO role, it was important for us to not only find an expert in human resources, but also someone who got the Henderson culture. Described as “thoughtful, empathetic, and easygoing,” Mindy was (and is) the perfect fit. Outside of the office, Mindy is an avid reader and loves traveling. As a self-proclaimed morning person, she enjoys getting an early start to her day and spends the bulk of her free time attending youth sports with her husband for their two kids. Henderson proudly counts on Mindy to help ensure our business strategy continues to align with our people strategy, including our increased focus on diversity and inclusion. With her expertise in our corner, we are well-positioned to remain one of the best places to work within the AEC industry.
