Walsh College’s Conversation with Leaders Program Announces Speaker Christina Vanderelzen, GM Director of Global Talent

Christina Vanderelzen, the director of global talent at General Motors, kicks off Walsh College’s Conversation with Leaders: Career Growth and Development program on Thursday, Oct. 12, from 6 to 7 p.m. at the Troy campus.

This complimentary session is open to the public and offers a unique opportunity to hear directly from Vanderelzen about her career journey — from material flow and labor to moving her family to Italy, to human resources director for global design, and now managing GM’s global hiring plan — and the value of lateral and vertical movement within a company.

“We are honored to host Christina Vanderelzen at Walsh,” said Jenny Tatsak, Ph.D., chair of the Business Communications Department and director of the Success Center. “Her career path, as well as her most recent experiences in global talent acquisition, will provide invaluable insight and a real-world perspective on the many critical issues facing businesses and professionals.”

The event is hosted by the College’s Success Center, which provides designated space and resources for executive coaching and prepares Walsh students with communication and technical skills necessary for leadership roles and professional growth.

“This presentation is perfect for Walsh College students, alumni, and all business professionals who want to network and learn how a career can take various turns along the way,” Dr. Tatsak added. “Conversation with Leaders is one of many examples of our focus to provide students with contemporary, real-life business knowledge.”
