Welcome: Michelle Marquez, new Director of People, Performance, and Culture

December 2, 2021

Dear Colleagues, 

I’m very excited to announce that Michelle Marquez will be joining Berkeley IT as our new Director of People, Performance, and Culture. The search committee was pleased to have a pool of candidates that brought a diverse set of experiences and skills. Michelle’s experience with the full portfolio of workforce development, HR, and DEIJ as well as her UC Berkeley experience made her a great fit for this new role. 

Michelle joins us from the Haas School of Business, where she has been Assistant Dean of Human Resources and Administration since March 2020. For the past 15 years, Michelle has served as a higher education administrator in roles supporting human resources, workforce development, and DEIB. In her various roles, she has managed college-wide finance and administrative operations, led a human resources team for an organization of 2,500 employees, designed and implemented career development programming, and worked as a labor market researcher supporting economic and workforce development in community colleges. Michelle is very passionate about supporting and advancing diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging in every aspect of her work. In her spare time, Michelle enjoys hiking, running, and riding her spin bike. 

Michelle will start on January 17, 2022!
