Global Human Resource Management
Dave Pritchett has nearly 35 years of experience as a global human resources executive, supporting worldwide manufacturing operations, with expertise in improving employee and union relations, labor contract negotiations, organization and talent assessments, business acquisitions, divestitures, restructuring and integration.
Over the past few decades Dave has logged nearly two million air miles providing valuable human resources support and leadership to business operations in both Europe and Asia. He has worked with European unions for over 12 years and represented companies at the National level of the European Works Council, and served as the chief company spokesman for labor negotiations, including negotiations with a Chinese union as part of an important business divestiture in China. His knowledge and understanding of the different business cultures enable him to effectively bridge the gap between “western style” management and local leadership in other countries. These skills have proven especially helpful during acquisitions and divestitures.
Prior to joining the Hutchison Group, Dave held senior human resource management positions with the Sundstrand Corporation and United Technologies Corporation, focused on supporting worldwide manufacturing operations. Dave is a graduate of Purdue University, with a Bachelor’s degree in Industrial Management.
