Chief People Officer
Carol Howard joined Abrigo in 2018, bringing more than 20 years of experience in human resources at high growth technology firms where she has fostered great company cultures. Most recently, Carol was senior vice president of human resources at social media marketing software company Spredfast, but she has also held HR leadership roles at CompassLearning (now owned by Edgenuity), Lombardi Software (an IBM company), and Abbott Spine. She earned her BS in healthcare administration from Texas State University and her MBA and master’s in organizational leadership and ethics from St. Edward’s University.
One of Carol’s favorite quotes is by Maya Angelou:
“I have learned that people will forget what you say, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
Carol says she likes how this quote goes back to the old adage of treating people how you expect to be treated. Carol says,
“No matter how difficult the conversation or situation, everyone should feel respected and treated kindly.”
