Working Together



Geoffrey Bain
Global Retail Executive

“Put simply, Kristin is the best HRBP I have ever had the pleasure of working with.  During our 2 years of working together, I was in awe of how easily Kristin navigated the organizational matrix and regulatory complexity, to deliver high-quality solutions.  In leading her team by example Kristin established a high standard for partnership and delivery.  As an essential member of our leadership team, Kristin contributed significantly to our results.  Her leadership and communication style made her an effective and trusted coach with individuals and teams.  Kristin continues to be one of my most trusted advisors in the people space and I would recommend her to any organization.”​

"Kristin Binkley is a true professional that brings a unique complement of skills and experience to her consulting practice.  It's rare to engage with a People consultant that is experienced in the full talent lifecycle - from Talent Acquisition to Development to Succession.  She has deep experience in Employee Relations as well allowing her to advise from all perspectives.


She's truly an expert in the problem AVOIDANCE business - yet can quickly pivot to the problem SOLVING business when situations arise.


When you need a partner to advise you from A to Z - KB is the call you should make!"

"Kristin is wonderful to partner with.  She helped lead a transformation of a global HR team and demonstrated her ability to not only work with all kinds of leaders, but compassionately manage people through change.  Her unique experience and background allows her to contribute highly to any team, project or business.  I look forward to the opportunity to work with Kristin again!"


Deb Muller
CEO HR Acuity

“As a leader in Employee Relations I have the privilege of working with ER leaders and executives from all industries.  Kristin distinguishes herself from her peers in her ability to creatively approach proactive solutions within an organization helping them make large step changes rather than focusing only on incremental improvement. ”
