Jennifer Smith

Jennifer Smith leads Exiger’s Global Talent & Culture Team.  She has been with Exiger since 2015, partnering with the business and its leaders in achieving Exiger’s significant growth objectives.  Exiger’s fast-paced evolution has included the growth of four integrated but distinct business units, each of which provides purpose-built, technology-driven and technology-enabled solutions to help clients solve their most complicated issues in managing risk and compliance.  During her tenure with Exiger the company has grown from approximately 100 to nearly 700 professionals and has opened multiple new offices around the world.

Experience

In her role as Chief People Officer, Jennifer serves as an active proponent of driving a culture that everyone across Exiger can be proud of, built on the foundation of Exiger’s shared Guiding Principles and centered around Exiger’s Purpose – working together every day to make the world a safer place to do business.  Jennifer serves as a business partner to Exiger’s senior leaders and as a coach and mentor to her global team.

 

Jennifer has extensive experience supporting organizations in building people-focused practices that weave a culture of commitment and connection through the employee life cycle.  She has served in HR leadership positions with organizations in the professional services and technology-enabled/data services sectors from public to private, early stage/high-growth to global billion+.  She has proven experience in driving successful business outcomes by serving as an Executive Business Partner and People Team Leader, and sharing her expertise in the areas of Talent Acquisition & Branding, Performance Management, Experience & Engagement, M&A diligence and integration, Organizational Design and Development, building scalable HR and People Systems and People Analytics, and in driving an Intentional Culture.

 

Jennifer and her husband Doug enjoy spending time outdoors and traveling (when safe) with their three daughters and their rescue hound Teddy.
