Kaleen Robinson

Chief People Officer

Being the chief people officer at a talent-focused firm might sound like a challenge, but our CPO, Kaleen Robinson, has it covered. She leverages her extensive experience in making connections and managing geographically dispersed workforces to help Salo create meaningful career experiences for our nationwide consulting and internal employee teams.

Kaleen comes to Salo from Alight Solutions, where she was the vice president of human resources. While there, she oversaw the development and implementation of dynamic workforce strategies that accelerated business growth. For example, she led annual talent review processes and succession plans in business units of more than 10,000 employees. She also played the role of executive coach to many leaders across the business. Finally, she led high-performing HR teams across North America, India, and Poland—partnering closely with the global business to deliver results.

Prior to Alight, Kaleen worked as the vice president of human resources for Hewitt Associates (which was then acquired by AON)—a complex, highly matrixed organization with anywhere from 35,000-75,000 employees and contractors in 120 countries. At AON, she led the development and implementation of business-aligned HR strategies, solutions, and programs. She also drove the cultural shift to integrate the company’s global footprint by building strong cross-cultural competencies and training for managers and teams.

Kaleen lives in the Chicagoland area with her wife and three dogs. They have four grown kids and one daughter-in-love, all in various stages of college, transition program, working, and parenting of their three granddaughters. She loves anything out-of-doors, especially water sports like swimming, paddleboarding, and kayaking.
