Greg Giangrande is a C-Suite executive with a deep background in entertainment, news, business/finance, sports and lifestyle multi-platform global media brands. Giangrande is the author of  “Go To Greg, ” a weekly career advice column in the NY Post. He is also a regular on-air contributor for local and national media commenting on career and workplace issues.

Most recently Giangrande served as the Executive Vice President, Chief Human Resources Officer and Chief Communications Officer for Time Inc., where he reported directly to the CEO and managed a global employee population of over 7,000. In his dual HR and communications role, he oversaw a staff of 100 globally – with diverse expertise in talent management, staffing, employee relations and labor negotiations, broad-based compensation, executive contracts and compensation, learning and development, benefits, diversity and inclusion, HR technologies, corporate security, brand and corporate communications.

Leading with a progressive vision that drives high performance, Giangrande has shaped organizational transformation and company culture at some of the most iconic companies in the world – from Time Inc. to News Corp, Dow Jones and The Wall Street Journal.

Giangrande joined Time Inc. in 2012 to oversee all aspects of human resources globally and implement a new talent strategy to attract, retain and engage innovative digital talent. In 2014, he was a member of the executive team that took the company public, spinning out from Time Warner and transforming a traditional, print-driven operation into a leading multiplatform consumer media company. As part of managing the transition to a public company, Giangrande reimagined the HR organization to bring a focus on talent, performance and culture and introduced data and analytics tools and capabilities. In the company’s first year as a public entity, Giangrande launched an award-winning benefits program in partnership with Willis Towers Watson. With a forward-thinking human resources strategy, he has abolished traditional “personnel” practices for every department he has led.

A dynamic presenter and impactful speaker, Giangrande built, launched and led a management training program with an emphasis on ethics and integrity in leadership, which was required for the nearly 1,000 managers across the US.

In his role as Chief Communications Officer, he lead corporate communications and media relations, brand public relations, crisis communications, employee communications, corporate events and corporate social responsibility. He reimagined Time Inc.’s PR strategy, proactively getting ahead of news and generating features focused on Time Inc.’s transformation in outlets including The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, AdWeek, CNBC, Bloomberg, Financial Times and securing speaking opportunities for executives on stages from the MPA to Cannes and CES.

Before joining Time Inc., Giangrande spent 15 years with News Corp in a variety of executive human resources roles. Most recently, he was Executive Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer for News Corp subsidiary Dow Jones & Company/The Wall Street Journal, where he also managed internal communications. He conceived The Wall Street Journal’s digital journalism training program, designed to educate editorial employees on digital platforms, and partnered with editorial leadership to successfully launch.
