For Title Resource Group’s SVP of HR, it’s Truly All about People
Debbie Higgins has over 25 years of experience in all disciplines of human resource management. At Title Resource Group, she oversees the human resources function for 2,000 TRG employees in 385 offices across the United States. This includes performance management, learning and development, compensation, benefits, organizational change and development, and the company’s affirmative action plan.
Debbie is the executive sponsor of the TRG Diversity & Inclusion Council. She is also executive sponsor of the TRG Cares committee, which raises funds and organizes events for local and national charities, and helps support a local women’s shelter.
Outside work, Debbie is actively involved in fundraising, volunteering for, organizing, and participating in bike rides, runs, and other events to benefit multiple sclerosis, cancer organizations, a local food bank, Special Olympics, and the Willow Tree Center’s anti-bullying campaign. She served on the Willow Tree Center’s board for three years and held the position of president for one year. Debbie was instrumental in sending more than 30 local middle school children to the Willow Tree Center’s annual camp, which focuses on teaching children how to cope with the stresses of growing up, live a healthy life, and avoid negative peer pressure.
“There are so many great women in HR roles,” said Debbie. “I have been fortunate to learn from many smart, focused professionals, who happen to be women. My first mentor was a wonderful inspiration to me. I cannot emphasize enough how important she has been to my development. If any woman starting her career has not found that mentor yet, find him or her!!”
