Triangle Performance, LLC was created to provide "the edge" to those organizations that understand the impact that their people, particularly senior management, have on the ultimate success of the company.
Here, strangely enough, Human Resources isn't as much about "people" in the literal sense, as it is about business success; fostering, motivating, improving on existing human capital to take an organization to new places. Certainly, cost reduction strategies can play an integral part. Additionally, revenue enhancement, productivity and efficiency improvements, and learned skills in management and teams play an equal role.
D. Kevin Berchelmann, President, CEO and principal consultant, is a highly acclaimed strategist and thought leader in executive and organization performance. From executive teambuilding, strategy development and compensation, to individualized coaching, performance improvement and retention, Kevin has been incredibly successful in delivering results and measurable value in this critical environment.
A decorated 13-year Armed Forces veteran, he served during the first Gulf War, and had tours of duty in Germany, Spain, and Turkey. His last position was as an Air Force First Sergeant - top enlisted position -- for the largest Air Force squadron in Germany.
And "no," you can't see any pictures of him during those lean military years...
Kevin's corporate background includes senior executive roles in human resources, operations and general management for multiple Fortune 1000 and privately-held firms. Company profiles and industries include technology, manufacturing, professional services, construction, not for profit and biopharmaceutical. Additionally, he has had extensive experience with investor-led, vendor-backed start-up and ongoing firms.
He's a sought-after speaker, invited to present, "Contingency Retention: Keeping the Key Employee," at the Winning the War for Talent: Recruiting and Retaining Employees conference held in San Francisco, and "Motivation & Performance Incentives: Creating Star Performers," at the 2000 Customer Care Summit in Las Vegas. His presentation for the International Zinc Association, "Human Resources - a Global Focus," was lauded as the best presentation during the 5-day international executive event, Zinc College in Golden, Colorado.
Kevin's credentials are commensurate with his work with executive teams: Undergraduate and graduate degrees in Business, certified Senior Professional in Human Resources, and active member and/or Compensation Strategy Advisor for multiple Boards of Directors. He is a member of SHRM, ASTD, the Institute of Management Consultants, and the Human Resources Planning Society. Kevin and his family live in Houston.
