Walter Jungbauer, CPA
Gwen began her career with the SuperValu corporation as the Manager of Internal & External Staffing. This role was just the beginning for a talented and hard-working human resources executive. Beginning her time with SuperValu, Gwen has held progressively greater roles with both small and large business, including RBC Dain Rauscher, US Bank, Geraty Investments, SuperValu (as Director of Human Resources) and finally her last role with a smaller manufacturing company in Baldwin, Wisconsin. Throughout her career, Gwen has thrived in a variety of human resources roles, but realized she could help more businesses with their recruiting, HR processes and employee development by founding Gierke Jungbauer Human Capital.
People are the biggest driver for Gwen, and she relishes the opportunity to help companies and individuals find that place for mutual opportunity. Like Geno Wickman’s Traction, she helps find ‘the right person for the right seat!’ Gwen understands that most business’s greatest assets are their employees and she’s committed to helping companies attract and retain their best people.
Gwen is active in a variety of causes and organizations and is an active outdoorsperson. She and her husband and three children and two dogs enjoy time together and helping others with their volunteer activities.
