In Cyndi Ryan, operational leaders and executives find a true strategic HR business partner. Her business savvy and ability to build trust at all levels make her a highly effective HR executive. I’ve had the good fortune to be a member of teams she has led to advance major change initiatives at Baylor Health Care System. She keeps everyone well informed and feeling like a valued member of the team. Rather than simply directing others, she gets into the trenches with the team to analyze information, remove obstacles and make timely, effective decisions. She remains cool and clear-headed under pressure and always conducts herself with integrity. Any organization would be privileged to have her, and I would celebrate an opportunity to work with her again."
