Our team at myHR Partner is different than just about any other company you might work with for HR services. Probably way different.
Our people are HR experts. After all, it’s our only business. We prepare you and your company for the future by providing HR strategies and programs that help you reach your long-term goals. And they’re real people who collaborate with you and your team as colleagues, not as an impersonal vendor. (Check out Our Workplace for a look behind the scenes here.)
Our culture starts with our CEO, Tina Hamilton
Tina Hamilton describes herself as a career entrepreneur. Raised by a family of entrepreneurs, her first business was the purchase of a franchise. She successfully sold that business due to a merger in 2001 and launched a new venture – myHR Partner – in April 2002. (Best move ever!) Her love of enterpreneurship lets her connect quickly with business owners and organizational leaders to understand their needs and help them overcome challenges.
Tina has established herself as an engaging writer and energetic speaker. She has been interviewed and published in the Wall Street Journal, Fortune Magazine, Fast Company and many other news outlets. She has been honored with numerous awards and accolades over the years. (Check out her full bio for a list.)
Tina is the daughter of a Holocaust survivor. She lives in Allentown, Pa., and has a daughter, son/daughter-in-law and two beautiful red-headed granddaughters.
Our Management Team
Kelly Coblentz, PHR
Director of HR Services
Kelly is responsible for overseeing all of the services we provide for clients. It’s a big job to make sure that we create beneficial relationships with clients and build teams that support their needs. Luckily she has the smarts and education to do it: a BSBA in Human Resources Management, an MBA and PHR certification. She has a passion for growing, preparing and enjoying food – a passion that extends into volunteer work with her husband, who started the Lehigh Valley Chapter of Farmers and Hunters Feeding the Hungry to help those in need.
Jenn manages the office and supports all of our HR professionals, which allows the team to focus almost exclusively on client needs. She’s the one who everyone comes to for solving problems or finding a solution – essentially acting as the team’s “Swiss Army Knife.” She’s also the go-to person for administrative questions from clients and suppliers. She loves to read, travel and spend time with her family.
Our expert advisers
We believe in the benefits of oursourcing! We’ve enlisted several partners who bring specific expertise and allow us to scale as necessary.
Jim Ciminelli, Chief Financial Officer
Jim acts as myHR Partner’s CFO, providing guidance on resource planning and accounting to ensure our financial stability. He watches the numbers while we take care of clients. He spent 10 years as a CFO for a mid-size manufacturer, so he can relate to the issues our clients face and how we work with them. When he’s not working with the “awesome myHR Partner team” (his words, not ours), he enjoys golfing, hiking, kayaking, reading and hanging with his two teenage boys.
Michael Drabenstott, Chief Marketing Officer
Mike provides strategic guidance for myHR Partner’s communications efforts with clients and prospective clients. Websites, social media, e-mails, news coverage — he’s guiding it all. Mike ran a successful advertising agency for 12 years with two partners. (The agency was a myHR Partner client!) He decided to depart in 2016 to work with closely-held business and not-for-profits where he could have more of a lasting, meaningful impact. He enjoys running, extreme day hiking, reading non-fiction, cooking, crossword puzzles and craft beer.
