Hector J. Velez Recently Elected President of The HR Leadership Forum

In Q4 of 2021, The HR Leadership Forum’s Board of Directors announced the election of Vector Talent Resources COO Hector J. Velez as President. Hector is a recognized thought leader in the field of human capital, and in this capacity, he will provide leadership, management, and vision to the Forum.  


As President, Hector will guide the HR Leadership Forum, ensuring it has the proper operational controls, reporting, and people systems to effectively grow the forum and ensure financial strength and operating efficiency.  


“I am honored and excited to serve as President of the HR Leadership Forum,” Velez said upon his election. “During my 26 years in the Human Capital business, I haven’t found an organization that consistently offers both quality programs and a quality membership.”  tale

“This past year, we prematurely lost our President Stephen Battalia, a great friend and a great leader in the HR community,” continued Velez. “The Board and I intend to honor Stephen’s memory with our best programs ever while delivering a quality HRLF experience to every one of our members, sponsors and supporters in the community at large.”
