Human Resources Specialist
Meghan Nichol is a strategic HR professional and a results-driven leader fostering organizational success through talent. She contributes passionately as a team player, a team builder, and in a leadership role.
Her 15 years of strategic start-up HR and business management experience has been centered around three pillars: building meaningful relationships, harnessing potential in others, and ensuring people and culture initiatives are in line with company objectives.
Meghan has spent the majority of her HR career helping to scale digital media and technology companies, while also spending some time in the wealth management industry.
Previous to her current role as the Head of HR at Redlen Technologies, a Canon Inc. company that is an industry leader based on their proprietary Cadmium Zinc Telluride precision radiation detection and imaging technology, Meghan spent seven years as the Head of HR at BroadbandTV (TSX: BBTV), a digital media and technology company that she helped grow from start-up phase through to a successful IPO; the largest IPO on the TSX with a sole female founder and CEO.
She worked with the Leadership team to design and execute strategic HR programs and closely partnered with BBTV’s Founder & CEO to deliver on the company’s commitments across three of BBTV’s four quadruple bottom lines – people, social and environmental. Together, they evolved the traditional HR portfolio towards one that drove the company’s desired impact on its employee, local and global communities. Empowering women leaders in digital media and technology was a leadership priority and, as a result, Meghan was able to support the growth of the women population at BBTV from 14% – 47%, with over 50% women representation at the management level. Her work while at BBTV was recognized for two HR award nominations at a national level.
She has held mentorship and coaching positions throughout her personal and professional life. She holds an honours diploma in HR, along with the CPHR post-graduate professional designation in human resources management and a leadership certificate from Queen’s University.
A passionate athlete, and all-around sports fan, Meghan was a competitive dancer and soccer player throughout her life. Currently, the majority of her athletic pursuits are spent running, cycling, and playing tennis on the west coast of Canada where she lives with her family, and her dog, Roger Federer.
