Kyla Thoman

Project Manager

  • Industry:Retail, Hospitality, & Food Services

Kyla is an enthusiast of all things 'workforce management' with a passion for retail scheduling and forecasting. She is a fierce problem-solver with team-centric, 'lean-in' attitude. Known as a positive disruptor, she is always looking for new opportunities to learn and improve.

Recently, Kyla has led the global scheduling and forecasting implementation for Nike; scaling Kronos WFM to over 600 Nike and Converse stores across 5 continents in less than two years time. In addition to her role in the global expansion work, Kyla has managed Nike's US fleet Attestation roll-out, a major technical upgrade from v8.0 to v8.1.3, and a global Employee Self-Service enhancement opportunity. In addition to her successes with Nike, Kyla has worked closely with Ralph Lauren through a variety of workforce management initiatives focused around Attestation, Timekeeping, and a global upgrade.

Before managing software implementations, Kyla worked in the retail industry and has garnered years of experience across the retail spectrum: store operations, planning & allocation, e-commerce, and merchandising. She loves to "talk shop", but finds ultimate satisfaction in understanding and solving for business needs.

Kyla earned a B.S. in Retail Management from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She lives in Indianapolis with her husband, Chris, and their two poodles. She is an avid runner; enjoys boating and crafting; and loves Chicago sports!
