Clint Wallace has been named Head of Human Resources for Johnson & Johnson’s Global Consumer Healthcare Operations. J&J is a DiversityInc Top 50 Hall of Fame company.
Wallace joins J&J as Head of Human Resources after serving as Senior Vice President of North America at multinational healthcare company Sanofi (ranked No. 25 on DiversityInc’s 2022 Top 50 Companies for Diversity list) for six years. Wallace has also worked in HR positions at BASF (No. 12 on the 2022 Top 50 Companies for Diversity list), GE Healthcare and Pratt & Whitney.
In a 2019 interview with DiversityInc CEO Carolynn Johnson, Wallace said he established himself as a leader by building relationships with people and building a “teaming spirit.” He said he has also taken initiative around a purpose.
“I’ve often said anything and everything that we do should always start with a purpose,” he said. “In building that relationship, in making that connection with that purpose it’s always been of use to me. I’m a retired military officer, even as an officer in the United States military where I spent 21 years of my life, I had a rank of being an officer which would command me certain respect and certain customs and courtesies. I never let that be the driver for people to do ask I’ve asked. I’ve always let strong relationship building be the driver of what would be the catalyst for them to see me in a role that they would want to listen to or be influenced by.”
