As a member of the Impinj executive leadership team, Christina is focused on strengthening Impinj’s HR organization and driving strategic initiatives that create a strong foundation across the company. She oversees the company’s investment in people and culture, leading programs and processes that support global talent acquisition and employee satisfaction and performance. With her deep experience she brings with her a passion for creating environments where people and teams thrive—where employees experience a greater sense of belonging through authentic communication and collaboration.  

"It is more important than ever to invest in a workplace culture that prioritizes people, and we are thrilled to welcome Christina to Impinj,” said Cary Baker, Impinj chief financial officer. “Christina’s solution-oriented, people-first approach to HR will help Impinj continue to scale globally, retain our amazing employees, and attract top talent.” 

Christina brings more than 15 years of HR experience to Impinj. Prior to Impinj, she led the HR program at NetMotion, where she partnered closely with leadership and employees to improve culture and retention, drive recruitment and develop international teams. Her efforts resulted in two consecutive Seattle Business Magazine 100 Best Companies to Work For awards in 2019 and 2020. Previously, she held head of HR roles for Point Inside and Akona (acquired by iSoftStone). Christina holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Washington State University. 

When not working, Christina enjoys hiking through the woods (but not getting lost), enjoys her annual “Larch march” around the Cascade Mountains, giving to programs that work to resolve food insecurity, and spending time with her family.
