If you ever want to meet the prototype of an HR Executive who really deserves his seat at the strategic table, find a way to meet Rusty Reuff. For the past seven years, Rusty has been the Czar of HR at fast growing
Electronic Arts. Prior to EA, he held positions with the PepsiCo companies for more than 10 years. At the start of his career, he spent
six years in commercial radio as an on-air personality. He currently serves on the corporate boards of All Covered and Sports Potential, Inc.
Rusty was never a typical HR weenie. The times we visited
with him at EA, he was always operating hands-on in the affairs of the boardroom. Leadership and charisma, unusual qualities in an HR leader flowed from him like a pheromone trail. Rusty was a serious player in the future of the company.
His contributions are recognized and well understood throughout Silicon Valley.
Recently. Rusty announced that he was leaving EA and HR. Snocap, the powerful new valley startup has chosen him as their new CEO. It's an unusual move and one well worth applauding. Rusty is the kind of fellow you want to follow. That's what real leadership
is all about.
Best of luck, Mr. Reuff.
