VP Human Resources (Pro Sports Team) – CP076
Lou talks with Mike Danubio, VP of Human Resources for the Boston Red Sox, about his career in HR. Mike explains that he was trained as an accounting professional, but after several years at one of the top firms, he was drawn to an opportunity to lead a nationwide HR initiative in campus recruiting for the firm. Mike offers an insightful view of the various HR disciplines, the value of a ‘generalist foundation’ in the profession and the personal and career rewards of finding your niche in one of the disciplines and leading that function. Although Mike moved to increasingly responsible HR positions in companies of various industries, much of the conversation centers on the unique aspects of his current role as an HR Executive in a Pro Sports organization ... in this case, The Boston Red Sox baseball team.
