Kathy Smith

Vice President, Talent Management and Development, Nationwide

As the leader of talent management and development, I get to help our bright, caring and committed people to be their best. And I get to do this in an amazing context – in one of the most admired companies and great places to work - and in a time of accelerated change and innovation.

In a typical week, you can find me:
- developing great leaders and teams
- helping our associates and leaders get ready for the future
- framing insights on our people to support decisions and accelerate action
- evolving our people processes to ensure alignment with business needs
