Rupp brings exceptional experience across all facets of human resources strategy and operations on a global scale, most recently serving as Head of Human Resources for Hewlett Packard Enterprise’s Greenlake business, in addition to being a key leader in the Transformation Office where she focused on transitioning HPE into an as-a-Service company. While at HPE, Rupp oversaw the facilitation of multiple M&As, served as Chief of Staff to the Chief People Officer, and led in the creation and strengthening of both people and business transformations as well as culture programs.

As a board member of Prospanica (formerly the National Society for Hispanic MBAs), Rupp enjoys empowering and enabling fellow Latinx professionals to achieve their full potential. In today’s rapidly changing economy, to be a leader in the global market means leveraging diversity to meet the changing employment landscape – a key business imperative which Rupp plans to bring forward in her new role.

Our spirit of innovation and shared values continue to attract first-rate professionals,” said Faisal Masud, CEO, Fabric. “Fabric has a unique opportunity to reimagine how we evolve commerce, and this is equally important in how we manage, how we lead, and how we organize.”

“Val brings the rare combination of realism and optimism to the table, giving valuable insight and solutions to complex global business challenges while scaling organizational growth. Her expertise in people and culture development will enable us to keep investing in our employees, accelerating Fabric’s overall capabilities and impact as we aim to deliver a connected commerce solution for more intuitive customer experiences.”
