About Greg Giangrande

Greg Giangrande has been called “one of the most highly-regarded executives in his field” by Adweek. As Executive VP and Chief Human Resources Officer for Time Inc. he oversees HR globally for 8,000 employees. He’s held executive level HR positions at News Corporation, The Hearst Corporation and HR leadership positions at Conde Nast and Random House.  Greg also writes a weekly advice column called “Go to Greg” for the NY Post and makes appearances on Good Day NY.

He’s also called all of the shots in his career, accepting only the opportunities that were aligned with what he calls his “True North.”

I never wanted to look back and regret not having spent enough time, or shortchanging my kids in that role. I could deal with regretting not having spent enough time in my professional career. But I don’t think I could deal with looking back and not having spent enough time raising my children.” –Greg Giangrande

Greg's anchor, his “True North” has always been his dedication to his family and keeping his career in balance with that has guided his decisions.

Greg believes that most people tend to overcomplicate their career decisions.  What it comes down to is holding tight to what matters to you, then focusing on providing as much value as you can, learning where you can excel and then doubling down on that!
