Nettles will join Manpower at the end of July 2019 from Molson Coors Brewing Company where she was chief people and diversity officer responsible for strategy, talent optimization and culture. In 20 years at Molson Coors/MillerCoors, Nettles held various positions in executive compensation, talent management, diversity and inclusion, labor relations and succession planning.

At ManpowerGroup, Nettles will lead HR and culture across the organization’s 80 countries and territories and across brands and functions – Manpower, Experis, Right Management and ManpowerGroup Solutions.

“I’m delighted to be joining ManpowerGroup at a time when talent and skills are top priorities for organizations, communities and individuals around the world,” said Nettles in a press release announcing the appointment.

Mara Swan, executive vice president global strategy and talent, will stay on to help with the transition of duties before retiring in March 2020.

“Michelle is an impressive people leader with extensive experience in global HR and a proven track record in driving a diverse and inclusive culture across multiple countries,” said Jonas Prising, ManpowerGroup chairman and CEO in a statement. “Her vision of employees as consumers together with her passion to broaden and deepen people’s skills and drive strong leadership capability is a great fit for ManpowerGroup as we continue to digitize and transform our business.”
