Career spotlight: S. Chloe Bedenbaugh

Editors note: The spotlight features South Floridians On The Move in their recently appointed positions.

Who: S. Chloe Bedenbaugh, 52, Delray Beach

From: Director of human capital at PRIZM, Inc., a management consulting firm specializing in sustainability and based in Gaithersburg, Md., from January 2009 to December 2012.

To: Vice president of human resources at Deerfield Beach-based Elizabeth R. Wellborn, P.A. (ERW Law), a law firm with additional offices in New York.

Start date: December 2012

Why the career move: After years of successful growth in the sustainability industry, PRIZM was acquired by Hitachi Consulting Corp. Since I was working remotely for the company, I decided it was time to work in the state that I have called my home for several years. ERW Law's commitment to integrity and excellence made the firm a great fit for me. 

Experience: Prior to joining ERW Law, I held positions as senior business partner at Freddie Mac, human resources leader at Covance Labs and senior human resources director at Science Applications International Corporation. Serving the community is also very important to me, so I'm proud to be chairperson of the City of Delray Beach Green Initiative Advisory Board and a South Florida admissions volunteer for The American University.

Education: degrees Master's degree in personnel management from The American University in Washington, D.C. 

Top goal in your new position: At ERW Law, we are developing a platform to help integrate our goals for social responsibility, community engagement and our business. We believe that to succeed as a firm, our employees and the community must be succeeding as well. My goal is to develop the organizational platform to help make this a reality, as well as model it consistently myself.

What have you learned so far: I've learned that our founder, Liz Wellborn, is actively engaged in the community and encourages her employees to be as well. An example of this is last year's Dunn's Run, which benefits The Boys and Girls Clubs of Broward County. We had 115 employees participate – the largest turnout of any company participating. Liz not only sponsors the run, she also covers the entry fee for all employees who want to participate.

On the side:

Hobbies: I am a Zumba aficionado and participate in classes at several local studios. I also attend "Gotta Dance!" Week, at Canyon Ranch, in Tucson each year, which brings people from across the country together to learn dance techniques from skilled instructors and celebrity guests. 954-356-4662 @mindingyourbiz
