Welcoming Ron to Gartner.

Two  months ago, after 10 years here, Jim Holincheck decided leave Gartner.  I wish him well. He will be missed; as a colleague and mentor.

Jim, Jeff Freyermuth,  Sunil Padmanabh, Chris Pang, Koji Motoyoshi  and I worked  to provide what we believe is the deepest and broadest coverage in the industry. With that in mind, it was essential to fill the gap left by Jim’s departure and I’m very pleased to announce today that Ron Hanscome is now with Gartner.

Ron has heaps of experience, as an analyst, consultant, practioner and in product management.  He has worked with several of my colleagues and management  in the past, when he was with Meta group.  He is well known to many in the industry.  I’ll be working with Ron and the team to shape the research agenda for  remainder of 2012 and into 2013.  I’m really looking forward to having Ron contributing to Gartner’s thought leadership in HCM. I’d encourage vendors to set up briefings with Ron.

You can follow him on twitter here.
