Prior to joining CU, Komarow served as Chief Human Resources Officer for Johns Hopkins Aramco Healthcare, a joint venture between Saudi Aramco and Johns Hopkins Medicine.
There, he built the Human Resources organization for the hospital from the ground up, developed all HR strategy and execution, improved the hospital’s recruiting functions to bring on a record number of new hires, and dramatically reduced onboarding time for international and Saudi national employees.
Throughout this career, he has implemented, migrated or designed human resources systems including PeopleSoft, Oracle, Lawson, ADP, Deltek, Fidelity and SAP. He has extensive experience in the health care industry, working with Emaar Health Group LLC, Health Authority Abu Dhabi and Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi prior to his role with Johns Hopkins Aramco.
“Having worked overseas since 2008, I knew it would take a unique opportunity for me to bring my family back to the USA,” Komarow said. “I am excited to become a part of the long rich history of the University of Colorado and look forward to bringing my energy and enthusiasm to the HR team.”
Komarow holds an MBA with a dual concentration of International Human Resources and International Finance from American University.
