Kris Dunn is the Vice President of People for DAXKO, a software company focused on serving the best membership-driven organizations in America. Prior to joining the team at DAXKO in 2009, Dunn was a Vice President of Human Resources for SourceMedical, a Regional Vice President of Human Resources for Charter Communications, a Human Resources Manager for BellSouth Mobility (subsequently known as Cingular and AT&T based on which round of consolidation you are referring to), and a Project Manager in the market research division of Aragon Consulting (now by IBM Global Services).
After picking up his undergraduate at Northeast Missouri State University, Dunn picked up a M.A.E in Education from the University of Alabama at Birmingham and a MPPM from Birmingham-Southern College. Dunn also received the SPHR as well along the way.
As a Human Resources Pro, Dunn is most interested in the intersection of the Human Resources practice, technology and business results in today’s organizations. He has a strong interest in areas like recruiting and performance management, but keeps an eye towards the thousand other areas that impact Human Resources Generalists at every level (VP, Director, Manager, etc.) as well. His eyes get glossy when Human Resources people start talking about being strategic without being specific.
Dunn started The HR Capitalist in December of 2006 with the goal of building a community he could learn from.
