Nicole Underwood

HR Director

The world fascinates me – so many places, cultures, foods, experiences and, most importantly, people.  Where they came from, what they have experienced, where they are going and how they can use their knowledge, experience and skills to make a daily impact.  While many people come to Xinova to build and solve problems, I am the first to admit I am neither an innovator nor an inventor.  However, I have a passion for people, connecting people, helping people scale, creating a culture where people can thrive and be their very best.  This is what Xinova is striving for every day and I am excited to partner and build for our future.  When given the resources and culture to improve, our employees develop skills to take into the world and connect with amazing people who solve problems every day. 

At three years of age I told my mother that I would work in one of those big buildings downtown one day. At four I dressed up as a “business woman” for Halloween.  At 16, in my advanced business study program, I realized I would never be able to spend all day doing “business stuff.”  I knew the world where I belonged existed; but it existed beyond the strict confines of accounting, finance, marketing and economics.  I quickly realized the human dimension of business was what truly fascinated me in the business world. After all, what is a business without its people?  This led me to achieve a double degree in Business Studies and Human Resources, closely followed by an M.B.A with a dual emphasis in Human Resources and Organizational Development.  While the people component is key, it is critical to understand that to be an effective HR leader it is as important to understand the business as it is to understand the people in the business. 

My journey has taken me through several Fortune 500 organizations and one very successful private consulting organization.  I had the opportunity to make an impact at a smaller level, on different pieces of the people puzzle, for the business and its employees.  Xinova has given me the opportunity to partner with our leaders to create an amazing place for our employees to work and our innovators to create. 

When not building a people-focused culture, you will find me at soccer, football, and baseball games with my two boys.  My husband and I have a passion for travel and helping our boys explore the world.  Since moving to the Pacific Northwest, we have become avid hikers and are always on the hunt for a new adventure
