Tye Deines to join Union as Chief Human Resources Officer

Publication Date

Dear colleagues:

It is with great pleasure I share the news that we have successfully completed our search for a new Chief Human Resources Officer (CHRO). Tye Deines, currently the executive director of talent management at the Dartmouth College Tuck School of Business, will join Union on Sept. 20.

Tye succeeds Beth Glassman, who is leaving us to become Vice President for Human Resources at Swarthmore College after serving Union with distinction as interim CHRO for the past nine months.

Tye brings a broad range of HR experience to Union in the private sector, with social service non-profit organizations and in higher education. He has been at Dartmouth for the past eight years, including five years leading the HR function for the Tuck School, one of the nation’s leading business schools. In that role, Tye has been responsible for elevating the school’s recruiting, onboarding and performance management systems and has led more than 100 searches for leadership and staff positions. He began his tenure at Dartmouth in the college’s central HR organization where he worked closely with a number of units, including the president’s office, development, student affairs, finance and athletics.

Prior to joining Dartmouth, Tye was director of Human Resources for Colby-Sawyer College in New Hampshire from 2012-2013. At Colby-Sawyer, Tye led all HR functions and served as the college’s Title IX coordinator, and is credited with generating increased efficiencies and simplifying HR process for the college.

A native of Montana and a graduate of the University of Montana, Tye began his career in the private sector before spending nearly a decade in HR leadership for large non-profit organizations in New York City and Denver. You can read more about Tye's background on Union's web site.

Tye’s varied experience - along with his passion for helping to create engaged and high-performing workforces - elevated his candidacy from among a strong pool of applicants. I am confident he will quickly build on the strong work done by Beth, who deserves our gratitude for her many contributions to Union. Please join me in wishing her nothing but the best as she moves on to Swarthmore.
