Rebecca is passionate about business, partnership, and leaving things better than she found them. Rebecca has a unique perspective on the people function gained from having worked in start-ups where there was no HR infrastructure and building it from the ground up to working for BlackBerry, a large global organization who went through a significant transformation since its smartphone days. Rebecca’s experience has equipped her to support clients of various sizes and stages through their growth journey.
Most recently, Rebecca was the Senior Director, Global Talent Development & an HR Business Partner at BlackBerry, where she worked for the past 9 years. In her role as an HR Business Partner, she supported senior executives throughout the organization, including members of the C-suite, with growing and managing their teams to achieve the Company’s business objectives. In addition to her HR Business Partner role, Rebecca led the Global Talent Development portfolio with an emphasis on leader and employee development, onboarding, performance, communications, DE&I, employer awards, and philanthropy. Prior to BlackBerry, Rebecca joined as the first HR leader at TextNow (formerly Enflick) and Miovision, where she established an HR foundation and supported the businesses through significant growth. Rebecca’s passion for startups has also led to several partnerships and mentoring opportunities that has supported businesses with their HR roadmap.
Rebecca is a graduate from Wilfrid Laurier University, holds the Certified Human Resources Leader designation and is certified in Myers Briggs (MBTI), Situational Leadership (Ken Blanchard), Taking the Stage (Humphrey Group) and Korn Ferry’s leadership content.
