Brian Kedzior gets inspired by change (it's a bit strange … he knows this), and his current mission is to make business more HUMAN. That could mean helping companies forge deeper connections with customers, developing leaders who can build genuine relationships with their teams, getting Team Members to connect with their company's purpose, or anything in between.
As Senior Director of Organizational Development and Change Management, Brian and his team help Walgreens leaders turn strategy into reality by identifying and developing the business capabilities needed to achieve their goals. Whether it’s process, technology, people or culture, the goal is the same; help the company grow and evolve.
Pre-Walgreens, Brian spent time in public relations, a handful of years at Allstate, six years growing and leading the U.S. Change Management practice at Bank of Montreal, and even some time as an independent consultant. He has spoken at events across the country on leadership and change, recently served on the Board of Directors for the Midwest Chapter of the Association of Change Management Professionals (ACMP) and is a certified, trained ninja (ok, that last one is made up).
