White’s Residential & Family Services, one of Indiana’s oldest and largest nonprofit social services agencies, announces the promotion of Amy Trowbridge as Chief Human Resources Officer. Ms. Trowbridge has more than 20 years of experience in the human resources industry.
“White’s values loving, caring for, and investing in our people above all else. The creation of a Chief Human Resources Officer is a reflection of that. Amy Trowbridge has demonstrated she is the right person for this key leadership role by her character, determination, empathy, and joy in serving others,” said Ron Evans, White’s Residential & Family Services CEO and President. “I am thrilled she accepted the call to be the first Chief Human Resources Officer at White’s.”
Amy has been at White’s Residential & Family Services since 2013 and was most recently the Vice President of Human Resources.
Amy earned a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Purdue University and a Master of Human Resources Management and Industrial Relations from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. She joined White’s in 2013 as a member of the leadership team, serving then as the Director of Human Resources. Before joining White’s, Amy served as a human resource professional in various positions at Frito-Lay, Zimmer, and Manchester University. In addition to serving at White’s Residential and Family Services, Amy proudly serves on the Board of Daniel’s Place in North Manchester.
“When I joined White’s in 2013, I made a deliberate decision to abandon my idea of a traditional career ladder. My goal was to serve Christ better, care for hurting people, and provide for my daughter, Eva,” Ms. Trowbridge said. “I did not expect the progression of my career when I came here. The evolution of this position demonstrates White’s commitment to organizational health. It is a progressive step toward recognizing how important people and culture are in an organization’s ability to succeed. I am privileged and honored to serve in this role.”
In her new role as the Chief Human Resources Officer, Amy will be responsible for oversight of all human resources functions. This role is critical for any organization as it confronts the challenges of the future in workforce development. White’s RFS continues to invest in their most valuable resource — employees. As the new CHRO, Amy will provide a strategy for driving employee recruitment and retention and growth and development of the organizational culture. This role will be critical in White’s continued growth and provision of superior care to teens, children, and families in crisis throughout Indiana and the nation.
