Chief People Officer, TaxJar
Elaine’s singular goal has always been to help companies break the norms for what’s possible in the workplace, believing that everyone desires the chance to be part of something meaningful, that work does not have to suck and instead, can be a place where autonomy, belonging and wellbeing all co-exist to create the right conditions for team members to thrive.
Taking all she has learned from working closely with Innovators like Tony Robbins, Steven Covey and Ken Blanchard alongside gaining deep operational experience with storied organizations such as Pepsico, Dun & Bradstreet, Northwell Health and now, TaxJar. Her move into the Technology sector as Chief People Officer is the culmination of all she has learned from the best CEOs and thought leaders around the world who have supported and nurtured higher purpose missions and values systems that drive strong performance.
Her ability to galvanize the workforce, build alignment, and generate motivated teams to deliver results, while nurturing the growth of leaders at all levels, enables Elaine to get to the heart of the matter quickly, causing people to have more meaning at work, while focusing manically on results that drive growth. Elaine has proven time and again her strategies and formula for
success is unmatched in a sea of mediocre and broken processes that fall flat.
Elaine has also spent time as an entrepreneur, co-founding her own business: The Good Trouble Company. GTC was founded on the belief that honest relationships + the right risks = confidence to act. You only need to spend a few minutes with Elaine to
realize that building great cultures, developing great leaders and innovating extraordinary people practices is more than just a job to Elaine, it’s an ecosystem she knows how to create, nurture & develop and one that creates tremendous value for the organizations she serves.
Outside of work, you’ll find Elaine spending time with her family and friends, both here in the U.S., and at home in the U.K. By her own admission, she is “never too far from planning her next travel adventure, or dreaming up ways to buy and renovate a house on a beach somewhere”.
