In 2012, Natalie joined Menttium as an Executive Mentee. She had been recently appointed Vice President of Human Resource with Jostens, a privately held consumer goods company located in Minneapolis, MN.
With a goal of accelerating her own learning, Natalie wanted to be paired with a mentor who could challenge her thinking, be a sounding board as she worked with our senior leaders on their opportunities and challenges, and who would stretch her leadership abilities, and communication style, as she transitioned effectively into her new role. In her transition from Senior Director to Vice President, she was also striving to help take her team to the next level in terms of performance and execution.
To help Natalie achieve her objectives, Menttium paired Natalie with Jim Gwaltney, President of J Gwaltney & Associates. Jim is a former senior level Executive with Ford Motor Company, accomplished author who holds an MBA and PhD. Jim's background is in sales and marketing and is located in Irvine, California.
