Chief People Officer
Chief People Officer Caroline Fanning is passionate about Avanade’s people and about creating employee experiences that make us all feel inspired, confident and cared for. She leads Avanade’s global human resources organization and is responsible for our people programs from talent acquisition to employee development and beyond.
Caroline joined Avanade in 2016 as Europe HR lead and in 2018 assumed responsibility for Global Business HR, working with teams around the world on initiatives such as the use of predictive analytics to manage attrition, organizational effectiveness and the development of a consistent employee experience, from onboarding through to our alumni network. She led the HR component of Avanade’s initial pandemic response, including liaising with our team across the globe as they managed self-reporting, flexible working, self-care and more.
She holds a bachelor’s degree in science from Aston University and has completed post-graduate work in executive leadership at Cornell University. Caroline’s favorite way to unwind: a long dog walk with a country pub at the end.
