Michael “Mick” Roberts
Vice President and Principal
Mick Roberts has nearly four decades of HR generalist experience with Fortune 500 and Fortune 100 companies and is regularly sought out for his advice and counsel in the area of labor relations and union contact negotiations. His expertise with labor relations assessments, compensation plans, and designing flexible job structures ranks him among the best in the world. Perhaps most noteworthy is Mick’s ability as a skilled facilitator; working comfortably with management, union leaders and employees to identify opportunities for improving communications, working relationships and developing strategies for “win-win” agreements.

In addition, Mick has served on numerous government business councils and boards, including Chairman of the Indiana Business Group on Health, and Chairman of the National Foreign Trade Council (Midwest Region).
Prior to joining the Hutchison Group in 2000, Mick served as senior human resources executive for the Sundstrand Corporation and United Technologies Corporation, where he was responsible for the company’s global human resource concerns in Europe and Asia. He is a graduate of Purdue University with a BS degree in Industrial Management and Engineering.
