Mark Fogel – Nominated Twice for 50over50HR

Color Mark FogelMark was the first person ever nominated for the 50over50HR Award. In fact, he was nominated twice the FIRST DAY the award was open for nominations – a testament to the impact he has obviously had on those in the HR practice!

That by itself means we need to make sure he was the first person to be publicly recognized. The verbatim nominations are re-posted below.

From the nomination forms:

Mark builds great HR teams. He is an architect of High Performance HR who brings new and innovative ideas to the table continually. He possesses deep industry knowledge, meaningful insights and a broad range of capabilities having worked in a wide array of industries and sectors.

Currently he is disrupting the HR space as the Senior HR Executive for Success Academy Charter Schools in NYC with oversight for the organization’s HR, Talent and OD functions.

Mark’s background includes over a decade as Chief Human Resource Officer at Leviton and the Marcum Group as well as co-founding Human Capital 3.0, a boutique HR advisory firm. Mark has been honored by The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) nationally as their Human Capital Leader of the Year in 2007, and by HR Executive Magazine as an Honor Roll recipient in 2010 and “Best HR Ideas” in 2012. He has also been a recipient of SHRM’s innovation in a down economy award in 2009, Adelphi University’s Teaching Excellence award in 2013, and named one of Long Island’s 50 most influential business leaders by Long Island Business News. His HR teams have garnished numerous national and local awards for HR innovation, wellness and employee engagement.

Mark has followed the path less travelled for much of his career. Recently he implemented world class “Success for Life” wellness programs (including financial, physical and emotional programs), and a hybrid of the Marcus Buckingham feedback model for performance reviews with a 1700 person population at the country’s most disruptive education reform and Charter school organization. Mark is always pushing the fringe ideas to action with creativity, speed, and agility.

I work with Mark and he is a great developer of the entire HR team. He works to build our technical skills and help us to grow professionally. He may not be the biggest name in the HR space, but those who know him also know he is at the forefront of Great HR.

UPDATE 10-25-2015: Another nomination has been uploaded for Mark Fogel!

Update to Mark Fogel – Brian Rothschild

Mark is at the forefront of HR. We were colleagues at Adelphi University, where Mark has been teaching graduate level HR part time in their MBA program since 2011 and I most recently served as the Assistant Dean for their Business school.

Mark continually received the highest ratings from students year after year. He brought the workplace into the classroom and took a keen interest in his students learning and loving HR. I know of at least 3 students that Mark brought on as interns at his work place and a couple others that he helped secure internships with at other businesses. A few even switched their interest to pursuing a career in HR as a result of Mark’s influence and mentoring. The university (Adelphi) acknowledged his passion, dedication to the field and innovation in the classroom by bestowing their teaching excellence award on him 2 years ago.

Mark has won several national and local awards of distinction and frequently speaks and moderates panels at Adelphi and in the community, he continually is giving back to the next generation by serving on volunteer advisory boards at local colleges (Stevens Institute – where I current work is one of them). He doesn’t have to do this, but he feels it is important to help the next generation of HR executives get the right education and internship opportunities to succeed in the business world. He is a truly giving person that cares about the future of HR.

With that said I proudly nominate Mark for this award of continuing distinction in his field.
