Personal Bio

Dave Gartenberg is the CHRO and a member of the executive leadership team of the privately held, rapidly growing Slalom, LLC. Slalom, LLC is the parent company to Slalom Consulting, Two Degrees, and mLevel. Through its various divisions, the company provides management consulting and technology solutions, staffing in accounting and finance, and markets and licenses product offerings on a software-as-a-service model.

Before joining Slalom, Dave was with Microsoft for almost 13 years. During this time he held multiple roles including a successful three year expat assignment rebuilding HR and the leadership team for the company’s $3.5B UK subsidiary. Dave was awarded Microsoft’s prestigious Circle of Excellence Award for the impact he and his team achieved during the three years. Dave finished his career at Microsoft leading the Customer and Support Services (CSS) Human Resources team which supported over 9,400 employees across 82 countries.

Prior to joining Microsoft, Dave spent more than seven years with Rohm and Haas, a $6B global specialty chemicals manufacturer. He started off as an Internal Consultant in their Leadership and Organization Effectiveness group, and then worked his way through a variety of client focused HR roles, finishing up as a member of the company’s HR Leadership team and responsible for the company’s Office of Technology (the 15,000 person technology backbone of the company, including Research, Manufacturing, Engineering and Corporate Development functions).

Dave earned his undergraduate degree in Economics at George Washington University, Washington DC and spent three years as an Economic analyst working for a consulting firm that was focused on Mergers and Acquisitions. Dave then returned to university and gained an MBA in Organizational Behavior and Development, where he was offered a Fellowship and taught undergraduate Management Science classes.
