As Chief People Officer, Laura Sue D’Annunzio helps Rackspace attract, retain and develop top talent and fosters a strong culture of engagement so the company — and individual Rackers — can achieve their full potential.
Prior to joining Rackspace in March 2018, Laura Sue worked as an advisor to CEOs on strategic HR issues and as a career coach for MBA students at the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University. Before that, she was a senior HR leader at Grant Thornton and Bain & Co. Earlier in her career, she served as a vice president for Booz and Co. and A.T. Kearney, where she worked with major corporations on people-related topics such as culture change, change management and human capital development.
Laura Sue brings to Rackspace a rare combination of expertise in human resources and in business strategy. As an undergraduate at Wellesley College, she majored in Computer Science and Economics and interned in Silicon Valley. She later earned an MBA from The University of Chicago Booth School of Business.
