first_imgKevin Hogarth on Capital One’s ‘evolution’Keen walker Kevin Hogarth has joined Capital One bank as the director ofinternal resourcing, and reckons the move has come at an ideal time. “It’s great to be involved in a business as it moves into a new stageof its development,” he says. “I’m most looking forward to helpingthe company move into a different phase of its evolution. It’s a very youthfuland energetic business, but it’s starting to develop some maturity.” He joins Capital One from Ernst & Young, where he was responsible forresourcing strategy in the UK. He has a strong philosophy at work and sees HRas central to the company’s development. “I think HR is about creating an environment where people can make themost of their skills and it can be right at the heart of where the business isgoing over the next few years,” he says. His main hobby – which has been drastically interrupted recently because offoot-and-mouth disease – is walking around the Yorkshire Dales with his wife. Most of his free time, however, is taken up looking after his 10-year-oldtwins. Hogarth is a graduate of the University of York and is CIPD accredited.
