Meet Your HR Connection Concierge

Hi, I’m Cindy Lu, founder of CHRO Partners. I am here to help you get the guidance and support you need to succeed as a CHRO.

During my 24 years of experience being a leader in people-intensive businesses I’ve come to realize ONE core competency is crucial in ensuring you make fast and better decisions to help the growth of your team and company.

And that is - connections and relationships with the right people. Having access to a network of top-tier peers you can lean on for support and leverage for ideas makes a world of difference in your ability to successfully tackle challenges and build winning human capital strategies.

This is one thing I had to learn the hard way, desperately trying to do all that was required of me on my own, relying on my wits and what information I learned from training and webinars.

And while those could potentially help, they are no substitute for the real-world business and talent experience successful CHROs can offer you. Like they did for me.

Finally understanding this is what made me transform companies like The Novo Group from a fledgling angel-backed human capital professional service firm to the winner of the Milwaukee Metropolitan Association of Commerce's "Future 50" THREE YEARS IN A ROW for companies seeing extraordinary growth.

It also helped me develop the skill set necessary to join the corporate boards of Aileron and TJ Hale and the core executive team at Parson Group, making it the  #1 Fastest Growing Private Company of 2000 according to Inc. Magazine.

Through my own experience and struggles, I know how valuable having an advisory board was for solving challenging problems quickly.  Not to mention forging long-lasting and impactful connections can help you succeed in your career much faster and easier. 

And that’s why I decided to create CHRO PARTNERS a safe, vendor-free space for HR professionals to come together and share their ideas and experiences.

Check Out What Members Are Saying About HR Mastermind. 


Marion Terrell, II, CHRO at MINT dentistry

“The decisions that we are making affect lots of people. And so I don't take that lightly.

If I can connect with people who have seen the movie before, who have a different way of thinking about things, it is extremely critical for me to ...have access to those folks.”

Josh Lipscomb, SVP Total Rewards, HRIS and HR Ops at Varsity Brands

“It's a space where I can speak freely in a safe environment and get input from peers for real business problems.

But also the friendships, I've been in Mastermind for several years and getting to connect about others' kids and family life is a really great outlet, but it's made me a better HR leader.”

Suzanne Myers, CHRO Arcosa

“I’ve been a part of Cindy's Mastermind group now coming up on three years, and it's one of the best investments that I've given to myself.

I really enjoy the colleagues that I've met over the years and the networking opportunities, but most importantly I'm just always surrounded by people with great minds and people who I can call and really lean on when I need some assistance.”
