"KAR Global continues to invest in the innovation and people that are driving our evolution into a digitally and data enabled auto tech company," said Jim Hallett, chairman and CEO of KAR Global.

Galvin has served in executive leadership and C-suite roles at Autodesk, Glassdoor, Advent Software and Deloitte over her career in human resources. As an HR executive, she has led diversity and inclusion, employee engagement and culture management efforts at companies with varied locations, languages and cultures across the world.

For the past two years, Galvin has overseen all people functions across the globe for Autodesk ? a publicly traded 3D design, engineering and entertainment software company ? as chief human resources officer. Prior to joining Autodesk, Galvin served in a similar capacity at Glassdoor, where she developed and drove the company's global talent strategy and worked directly with its board to establish executive compensation, equity programs and succession planning initiatives. She began her HR career in 1991 at IBM in Ireland.

"At KAR Global, our employees and our board of directors are laser-focused on becoming the leading end-to-end global remarketing solution for our customers," said Hallett. "Carmel can help us continue our journey toward powering automotive marketplaces across the world."
