Karin Thul

Principal | Fort Lauderdale, Florida

“I love finding the secret sauce to turn a group of all stars into a high-performing team.”

A top-shelf assessor and former Chief of Staff for Deloitte – when asked to list her accomplishments for this bio, Karin replied, ‘Ugh. Gross.’ Her reaction to the task perfectly exemplifies her ethos: affable, humble, and witty. Her genuine approach is part and parcel of the mutual respect she emphasizes in each client relationship.

Karin works across a spectrum of solutions delivering strategic organizational insights while also articulating how a growth strategy or transformation will translate to key members of the management team. This is reflected in a career history that is difficult to boil down to key highlights: building and defining the HR Business Partner team at Magic Leap, leading assessment and development projects for Egon Zehnder, and defining the vision and operating model to drive transformation for Deloitte’s Organization & Talent Business Unit. Her broad experience is reflected in her work with Ampersand in assessment, leadership development, and organization design.

Yoga is Karin’s thing, and she brings considerable flexibility to her consulting. Expect her to bend over backwards (perhaps literally) to make you comfortable and get to the bottom of your most vexing talent and organizational issues.

It’s obvious to us that Karin has whipped up her own “secret sauce” for life –dogs, kids, an Airstream trailer, and nonstop adventure. We should all be so lucky.
