Jeff Deel joined The Austin Company in 2006 and was promoted to Director of Human Resources in 2011. At a recognition dinner in 2017, Mike Pierce stated, “Within his first year, we knew that Jeff would be a very valuable contributor at Austin.”
In his role, Jeff is responsible for all human resource functions nationwide, including talent acquisition, organizational development, performance management, coaching, succession planning, policy and procedure, compliance, benefits, employee relations and compensation. As a member of the Senior Austin Leadership Team, Jeff works alongside Austin executives to help drive the company vision and identify and prioritize initiatives to improve the operations of the organization.
Jeff states, “I have spent a number of years in the HR realm and have been given the opportunity to work with some amazing people, from line workers to C-suite executives. What I have found, is that, for the most part, people have the desire to do well, but usually have barriers that stop them from accomplishing their goals and being their best. It is most satisfying when I can help individuals identify the barriers that hold them back from being the best they can be. I have been fortunate enough to be able to work in a field where I can do what I love — help people and companies succeed.”
