Hugh Blane

Hugh Blane doesn't claim to know everything about your business. He does claim however to know more than anyone about converting human potential into accelerated business results - that's why his clients call him The Talent Alchemist.

His consulting firm, Claris Consulting, is retained by clients such as Microsoft, Sony Pictures, Nordstrom, Costco, Stanford University, Swedish Health Systems, Aramark, Spacelabs Medical, Sodexho, Pepperdine University and the University of Texas in Qatar to challenge assumptions, jettison complacency and catapult growth.

Hugh's specialty is working with senior teams and high potential employees and was recognized when he was selected as the exclusive coach for the prestigious Helen M. Young Fellowship at Pepperdine University. He is an Adjunct Faculty member at the School of Law and Entrepreneurship at Pepperdine University and has taught business literacy courses to homeless men and women through the Union Rescue Mission in Los Angeles. He has also served as on the Strategic Planning Committee of the Boys and Girls Club.

Hugh and his family emigrated from Scotland to Canada and then to Birmingham Alabama in 1969 to escape financial hardship and begin their lives anew. The culture shock experienced upon his arrival in Birmingham six years after Bull Connor ordered the use of fire hoses and attack dogs, along with the bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church was profound. His commitment to organizational transformation came as a direct result of being witness to a chaotic time that changed the course of race relations in the United States.

Hugh once ran with the bulls in Pamplona and learned how not to get gored. He is happily married to Alyson and they love traveling, wine and good food. They reside in the small beach community of Normandy Park, Washington with a giant black Schnauzer they rescued named Brooks. They're still debating whether they rescued Brooks or if Brooks rescued them.
