Patrice M. Gaul Named RLI Human Resources Learning Consultant
Rapid Learning Institute (RLI) is pleased to announce the appointment of human resources expert Patrice M. Gaul to the position of Learning Consultant.
Patrice has a 20-year history in the human resources field. For the past nine years, she operated her own consulting business, Identity Security and Compliance Advisors, while simultaneously serving as special HR consultant to the Midatlantic Employers Association. In that capacity, Patrice provided HR services to the association’s 700 member companies.
Prior to running her own business, Gaul served as Senior Human Resources Generalist for Smiths Aerospace of Malvern, Pa. At Smiths, her duties included recruitment, employee relations, benefits administration training and performance management among others. She is also past president of the Chester County (Pa) Chapter of the Society of Human Resource Managers.
“RLI is a great fit for me,” Gaul says. “Having been on both sides of the business, I think I understand the challenges my clients face. And because RLI’s approach to sales is consultive, I’m not only selling, I’m educating, which is something I really enjoy doing.”
“Patrice Gaul is uniquely qualified for her new position,” says Glenn Eckard, RLI Chief Operating Officer. “Having been both a provider of HR services as well as a longtime HR executive, she brings a rare perspective to her work that will be of enormous value to our human resources clients. Patrice really understands their challenges and speaks their language. Add to that her terrific personality and charm, and it all adds up to a great hire for RLI.”
