Holzer’s HR leadership experience spans several industries, including those served by Verisk. Recently, Holzer served as executive vice president and CHRO of Realogy. Prior, she was executive vice president and CHRO for Computer Sciences Corporation (now DXC Technology). She has also served as CHRO for Chubb Insurance and chief diversity officer at American Express.
She currently serves on the board of directors for South Jersey Industries, an energy services holding company consisting of a natural gas utility and a group of nonutility energy businesses. She’s also a Human Resources Management Department Advisory Board member at Rutgers School of Management and Labor Relations.
“I am thrilled to join Verisk and build on the company’s commitment to an inclusive and values-driven culture,” Holzer said. “The pace and breadth of the company’s innovations across a diverse set of industries are tackling some of the world’s most complex problems. This presents unique challenges that I’m ready to embrace.”
Holzer will report to Stephenson. She succeeds Vince McCarthy, who stepped in a year and a half ago to lead the company’s HR function. McCarthy has held several leadership roles in his 12 years at the company, including group president and head of corporate strategy and development.
“We’re fortunate to count on Vince’s leadership and can’t thank him enough for his many contributions, particularly during the last year and a half as we faced historic challenges. Vince will continue to be a valuable resource and partner,” Stephenson said.
