The MDO extends a warm welcome to its newest member, Jackie Linton.
Jackie will serve as Deputy Managing Director and Director of the Center of Excellence.
The Center of Excellence is a new initiative within the MDO. Under its current structure, the center exists to improve three main categories. The first category focuses on organizational development, namely talent retention and succession planning. The second category focuses on project management, creating disciplines and processes to increase efficiency. The third category focuses on performance management, using metrics to keep score on how departments are performing.
Jackie is well qualified to head up the Center of Excellence. Before joining the MDO, she served as the Vice President for Human Resources at Synagro Technologies, an environmental services company based in Houston. Before Synagro, Jackie’s career was split between engineering operations and human resources.
“I think my background has prepared me well for this position. It is all about performance improvement and I’ve seen it from both sides.”
The MDO team is most excited for Jackie’s arrival and her work with the Center of Excellence.
