As part of Human Resources’ commitment to providing additional resources in talent acquisition, it is our pleasure to introduce Tom McMahon to our Human Resources team. In January, Tom began his position as Director of Talent Acquisition. This role is a homecoming for Tom who graduated from IU and the Kelley School of Business before launching into a successful HR career over the past 30 years, with particular emphasis on talent acquisition.
Tom joins us from AkzoNobel, a multinational paint and chemical company, where he was most recently redesigning their global hiring process. This assignment came after Tom successfully improved every aspect of the company’s talent acquisition process in North America. Prior to his seven years at AkzoNobel, Tom worked in talent acquisition roles at Federal Signal Corporation, Transunion, Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, U.S. Cellular, Molex Inc., Panduit Corp, and Amsted Industries. In addition to his BS from Indiana University, Tom has a Masters in Human Resources from Loyola University.
Tom’s emphasis throughout his career has been creating a positive and memorable experience for every candidate who applies for a position. Through his use of Six Sigma and LEAN principles, Tom has found many opportunities to streamline the hiring process while increasing the quality of the candidate pools at the same time. In his new role at IU, Tom will bring these same principles as he and the Talent Acquisition team focus on our hiring and onboarding processes.
While Tom will be based in Bloomington, he will spend time on all of our campuses to ensure that Indiana University has a talent acquisition process that works well for everyone.
Please help us welcome Tom back to Indiana University as he and his family relocate from Chicago.
