The National Human Resources Association Los Angeles Chapter (NHRA-LA) has announced its 2023 Executive of the Year finalists. The shortlist includes Anjelica Garcia, Chief Human Resources Officer and SVP at Red Bull North America; Mamoon Syed, SVP and Chief People Officer at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles; and Ann Jackson, Chief People and Culture Officer at Oak View Group.

For almost a decade, NHRA-LA has honored human resources professionals for their exemplary leadership and commitment to their organizations. The annual Executive of the Year Awards Gala, held at the Skirball Cultural Center on September 21, 2023, will recognize the HR community in Los Angeles. One winner will be chosen from the three finalists.

“This year’s theme for the Executive of the Year awards is agility, which represents the Los Angeles HR community’s ability to be nimble and adapt quickly to the changing landscape,” said NHRA-LA Co-President and Bolton Executive Vice President Andrew Agress. “We are proud to recognize our three finalists for their exceptional contributions.”

The Executive of the Year award finalists are the best of the best in the Los Angeles Human Resources community. NHRA-LA will celebrate the finalists and their accomplishments in the months leading up to the awards event.

Anjelica Garcia leads all HR functions for Red Bull’s 6,000 employees in the U.S. and Canada, giving wings to people and ideas that drive change and enhance organizational effectiveness. With more than 20 years of experience in health care human resources, Mamoon Syed provides strategic direction to Children’s Hospital Los Angeles’ HR functions to make a difference in patients’ lives by bringing optimal business practices to the management of physician offices. As Chief People and Culture Officer at Oak View Group, Ann Jackson is working to better the careers and lives of OVG employees by implementing groundbreaking HR practices.

Each finalist will undergo a 360-degree assessment, a panel interview with their peers and a video session to determine the overall winner in September.
