Executive Director Human Resources
GM Holden Ltd
Australia’s car industry has gone through immense change over the last four years, transforming itself almost beyond recognition. At Holden – with more than 10,000 employees across Australia – Ashley has played a key role in support of the workforce through this massive change, while still staying focused on helping teams and individuals unleash their potential. For many businesses funding, customer preferences, the absence of brand loyalty and the adoption of technology is leading to uncertainty, fear and ultimately change. Holden’s success in managing this transition has some important lessons for other organisations facing similar challenges, caring for your people, maximising motivation and keeping focussed on what’s important even while the business changes around them.
