Our Leaders


Robert Ordever joined O.C. Tanner in August 2014, as our European People and Operations Director. From luxury retail to Premier League football, Robert's operational background has given him a real passion for creating a workplace culture that truly gets the best out of its teams. At O.C. Tanner, his passion and drive helps each of our clients win and remain winners. Outside of work, Robert is a proud Dad and devoted Fulham Football Club fan.


An executive is only as good as the team she leads. Joanna Morley, our Director of Finance, lives that mantra day-in and day-out at O.C. Tanner Europe. She joined our company with 16 years of experience and an FCCA designation. No task is too big or too small for Joanna. She enjoys working shoulder-to-shoulder with her fellow Appreciateologists and is willing to do what's necessary to get a job done. When she isn't crunching numbers for O.C. Tanner, Joanna spoils her niece and nephew, travels, watches tennis and spends time with friends and family.

It's through her example that Carolyn leads and carries on the legacy of her father, Obert C. Tanner. Like him, she believes in honest and transparent business practices, supporting employees and giving generously to charitable organizations and communities. When she's not looking after 1400+ employees, Carolyn is supporting foundations like the YWCA of Salt Lake City. She also served the Salt Lake community as the bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Utah from 1996 to 2010.

Dave Petersen President & CEO

Dave arrived at O.C. Tanner offering his services without a job interview or offer. If the company wasn't pleased after a month's work (without pay), he'd pack his things. Lucky for us, 30 years later he's proven his determination, dedication and capabilities time and time again, in literally every department of the company. Coupled with a bachelor's degree in international business from Brigham Young University an MBA from Thunderbird American Graduate School of International Management, make him a globally-minded leader for our global company.

Giving Back

Our founder, Obert C. Tanner, measured the company’s success by asking his accountant, “What’s our giveability this month?” His intention echoes in our hearts and halls today. It’s why we donate our time to organisations in need, our effort to improve our communities, and 10% of company profits to philanthropic causes.

O.C. Tanner’s charitable strategy is to support the environment, arts, education, children, and organisations that are meaningful to its employees—all things that are important to the organisation and what it stands for.

Corporate gifts
The Tanner Lectures on Human Values. The endowed lectureship at Oxford, Cambridge, Princeton, Harvard, Stanford, Yale, and the universities of Utah, Michigan, and University of California at Berkley, was established by Obert C. Tanner to “contribute to the intellectual and moral life of mankind.” 

The Gift of Music. Every other year, 44,000 complimentary tickets are given away to the Tanner Gift of Music, a two-night concert series featuring the Utah Symphony, Mormon Tabernacle Choir, and guest soloists. The 2013 concert featured singer-songwriter James Taylor. 

Fountains. We’ve donated more than 40 fountains as corporate gifts, fountains that now beautify the landscapes of schools, hospitals, parks, and universities around the country.


 Tanner Cares
Our Tanner Cares program offers financial assistance to employees in times of extreme need. The money comes from all employees. Whenever an employee contributes to a community charity, the company matches the donation dollar for dollar in Tanner Cares. 

In 2011, O.C. Tanner Canada introduced the Employee Donation Program, in which the Company gives $100 to each employee to donate to the charity they choose. In our inaugural year, these were the top 5 charities of choice:

Princess Margaret Foundation Ride to Conquer Cancer 
Canadian Cancer Society 
Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada 
Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation 
Heart & Stroke Foundation
