Leading Executive Search Firm now provides Human Resource Solutions for Enhancing Business Performance!
January 24, 2012, Overland Park, KS. Scott Samuels, President of Horizon Hospitality, announced today the expansion of Horizon Hospitality with the creation of Horizon HR Solutions, LLC. “Since our company’s inception in 1998, we continue to recognize the increasing demand for pre-employment screening, pre-hire assessments and post-hire development/coaching tools. This demand has become so great that we have made a strategic decision to create a division of Horizon which will focus on enhancing these services and resources for our clients across the country,” Samuels stated.
Horizon HR Solutions, LLC will be led by Catherine Loudon and based at Horizon’s Corporate Offices in Overland Park. “I am extremely excited to have Cathy join our team. She is a true out-of-the-box thinker and a seasoned HR professional who shares my vision of developing exceptional human resource solutions,” Samuels added. Prior to joining Horizon Hospitality, Ms. Loudon served as Director, Business Partner of Human Resources for Truman Medical Center in Kansas City where she worked with key business leaders on all elements of HR services, including employee relations, performance management, organizational alignment and team building. Prior to Truman, she served as Director Human and Organization Development for the City of Olathe; Manager of Organization Effectiveness at Black & Veatch Corporate Office; and Lead Project Manager for Emerging Leadership Programs at Sprint’s World Headquarters.
“I am excited about the opportunity to help our clients with tools and resources which will enable them to maximize their success. Every organization is different, so don’t expect a cookie-cutter approach. We will take best practices and leading edge thought-Leadership to help clients create high performing environments,” said Loudon.
Recognizing that many hospitality organizations lack dynamic and innovative Human Resource Solutions more commonly found in larger Fortune 500 companies, Ms. Loudon will work on creating practical and cost-effective human resource tools specifically for Horizon’s many hospitality clients across the country.
