Robin Switzer has been named USNH director of Human Resources Services, replacing Joan Tambling, who retired after 35 years of distinguished service with USNH.

Switzer comes to USNH from Northeastern University, where he served as director of HR operations and systems. Prior to this appointment, he was director of global HR operations for Thermo Fisher Scientific. He has also held senior posi­tions at Fidelity Investments and Tufts University.

"This position within USNH is unique because it serves a dual role of supporting our four campus HR functions and running operations such as benefits and compensation management that are more cost and staff efficient to operate centrally. It requires someone with deep knowledge of HR in higher education and excellent interpersonal skills. Robin brings both assets to the table and we're very pleased to have him join us," said John Small, USNH board of trustees member who served on the search committee.

"I am very pleased to join USNH with its tremendous reputation and dedication to HR services for each of the institutions in the system," said Switzer.  "This is an exciting opportunity for me to help enhance the planning and operation of the HR programs while collaborating and serving as a business partner to the HR resources and senior leaders on each campus.  I look forward to working with Chancellor MacKay, trustees, the USNH HR team and the HR leaders across the system."
