Lisa Wilke

Lisa Wilke is the HR Practice Leader at Fine Point Consulting, LLC. Working primarily with startups and entrepreneurial non-profit organizations, she partners with company leadership to strategically maximize their people resources in a completely customizable manner. Startup and other high growth companies have unique challenges and opportunities that Lisa is well versed in maximizing. Not only as an HR partner, but also as a business partner.


As an HR leader, Lisa is focused on understanding where the business is today, where it's going, and then maximizing the people resources to help get there. This means focusing on the people (as opposed to policies and procedures). Lisa breaks the traditional mindset of HR, and truly enables high performance and engagement. Her goal is to walk into a room and not hear "uh-oh, HR is here".


Before joining Fine Point Consulting, Lisa had a successful HR career within small and midsize organizations, holding progressively responsible roles. When she joined NeuWave Medical, Inc as the company’s first HR leader she knew she found her passion for startups. NeuWave was acquired by Johnson & Johnson in 2016, giving Lisa a well-rounded experience from starting and leading an HR function through acquisition and integration.


Lisa holds a Bachelors of Business Administration degree in General Management with an emphasis in Human Resources from the University of Wisconsin – Whitewater.
