Brian Hinchcliffe

Brian Hinchcliffe is CEO of Kurru, LLC.  He is a seasoned consultant, with particular expertise in compensation systems, organization development, career transition, and leadership development and coaching.  In addition to management experience spanning airline, financial services and technology companies, he has consulted extensively to companies in the US, Australia, Asia, the Middle East, UK and Europe.

Brian has sold and implemented the CLASSIFY / AGRADE system to high profile clients, including Boeing and Nestle, in industries ranging from mining to manufacturing to services.  With significant facilitation and training skills, he has worked with people “from board room to boiler room”.

Brian’s accomplishments include: leading the organization sub project of a major business turnaround, which generated significant culture change for a $US 1 billion global corporation; designing and introducing modern, business-focused human resources processes into a bureaucratic, seniority-based environment.  He also conducted organizational audits of regional offices in New York, London, Paris and Dubai, and recommended savings of more than 50% in staffing costs.

In other achievements, Brian completely re-wrote a Schedule of Authority, detailing approval levels for all financial and human resources activities, to decentralize decision-making and increase accountability.  With client executives and managers, he drove development of a corporate customer service strategic plan in a militant, unionized environment, in place of operational “fire fighting”.

As a career transition consultant working with Right Management Consultants, he has assisted more than 300 executives and managers in the US and Australia to re-orient their careers, conducting job search seminars, and fostering client relationships.  As a volunteer, Brian co-founded and co-facilitates the CareerBridge job search network which has been instrumental in more than 130 professionals and managers finding new jobs since 2001.

Brian has also delivered sessions at conferences and workshops on organization change, and compensation, presenting recently to groups including HR Southwest Conference, Texas Compensation & Benefits Conference, University of Texas at Arlington, and APICS.  His article “The Juggling Act – Internal Equity and Market Pricing” was published in “workspan”, the national journal of WorldatWork (formerly American Compensation Association).

Brian holds an MBA from Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia, one of the top forty business schools in the world, and a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Sydney.  He is an active member of Dallas-Fort Worth Organization Development Network and North Texas Compensation Association.
