As Head of Transformation and Change, Yvette is responsible for leading multiple change initiatives underway, aligned with the organization’s strategic pillars of service excellence, customer experience, product development and growth. Yvette has extensive experience in global human resources with organizations in the Twin Cities, including LaCrosse Global Fund Services, Curtis Squire, Inc., and most recently, Pavilion Financial Corporation, where she was Vice President, Global Human Resources. She has successfully led enterprise-wide change in organizations focusing on organic growth and growth through acquisition. Yvette has a degree in industrial/organizational psychology and organizational training & development from the University of Minnesota.
