Reston, VA, April 23, 2024 – YRCI, a leading provider of public sector professional services and management consulting, proudly announces the appointment of Cristina Chiappe to the position of Senior Director for HR Shared Services and Training where she will oversee the Human Resources Remote Operations Center (HRROC) and YRCI University (YRCI U).

I look forward to collaborating with our talented team to drive innovation and deliver exceptional results for our clients.” 

Chiappe previously served as Director of the YRCI University, where she demonstrated outstanding leadership by spearheading the development of multiple training and re-skilling programs tailored to employees and federal clients, while also establishing the first of many valuable partnerships with colleges and universities to enhance educational opportunities for stakeholders. Prior to joining YRCI, Chiappe held senior positions in the federal government, including serving in the Senior Executive Service (SES) at the USDA National Finance Center (NFC), where she led a team responsible for payroll operations and human resources (HR) services for over 661,000 employees nationwide.
