Equifax Inc. has named Carla J. Chaney as its new Chief Human Resources Officer, replacing Coretha M. Rushing who is retiring after 13 years with the company.
Chaney is a human resources leader with more than 20 years of experience and joins Equifax from Graphic Packaging International where she served as executive vice president of human resources and communications.

She has a successful history of designing, executing and aligning human resource programs and processes to support business objectives, and I know she'll be a dynamic and collaborative growth leader for this company," said Mark Begor, CEO of Equifax. "She has a history of business partnership and an ability to attract, retain, and motivate top talent. We are energized to have Carla joining our leadership team."
Rushing will spend the next several months working with Chaney in her transition to Equifax.
"Coretha leaves behind a strong legacy of attracting and retaining top talent. She has truly created an inclusive work environment, and Equifax and the HR profession have benefitted substantially from her strong leadership over the past 13 years," added Begor.
Chaney joined Graphic Packaging International in 2013, where she led HR programs and acquisition integrations across the globe, as well as driving improvements to its employee development programs.
