Fathom Consulting is thrilled to welcome Cherise Salim as its new Director of Human Resources! Cherise is no stranger to the professional services industry; she joins Fathom from a law firm, where she helped the organization implement and mature their entire HR function. Prior to that, Cherise held a variety of roles with companies that Fathom is thrilled to call clients—including 3M, Cargill, Goodwill Easter Seal, and Be The Match—and has even served as a consultant herself. It’s no wonder we identified Cherise as a great add to the Fathom team!
Cherise is looking forward to growing Fathom’s HR function—or creating “HR 2.0,” as she’s called it—continuing work to advance our vision and lean in to our Great Place to Be culture. “I have been surprised by the enduring relationships that Fathom employees have fostered not only with colleagues but also with clients,” said Cherise. “The past two years of COVID have changed the way relationships are established and maintained. However, seeing the close and flourishing bonds the team has is amazing.”
Cherise’s immediate focus is getting to know new colleagues on both a personal and professional basis, and garnering a deeper understanding of the business and the work that Fathom does. “I am super excited to be a part of all the wonderful initiatives that are happening and look forward to a remarkable end of 2022 and start to 2023,” Cherise said.
The team has also enjoyed getting to know Cherise, who impressed us with her “All About Cherise” collage during her first all-staff meeting. Cute baby photos? Eighties leg warmers and glamor shots? We loved learning about Cherise a new mom, a fitness and dance enthusiast … and one-time fashion model!
With Cherise now on the team, CEO and Managing Partner Kate McRoberts has her eyes on the future. “We are so excited to be able to collaborate with Cherise throughout our firm’s next chapter of growth,” she said. We are already benefiting from her deep and varied HR expertise and knowledge of DEI best practices across the field. She has impressed us all with her positive energy, strong communication and relationship building skills, and her proven track record of enabling employees and teams to accomplish their goals.”
