Senior Vice President, HR
I bring over 30 years of industry experience working for major international companies including IBM, Unilever, and the Stonyfield Farm unit of Groupe Danone, where I was the Vice President of Human Resources. In my last position, I led HR and organizational development for a global engineering services firm headquartered in Madison, Wisconsin, USA who had customers such as John Deere, Caterpillar, Cummins, Harley Davidson, General Electric and many more. The opportunity to join an exciting, growing company such as VGL led my wife and I to make the decision to change path one more time and make the move to Austin, Texas in the USA. Away from work, I enjoy golfing, family history research and my charity of choice is to be involved with agencies and organizations that fight domestic violence.
Despite having nearly twenty years of experience in the consumer goods industry, I have much to learn with our online delivery model, which is a first for me. But it is interesting to see our products on TV or the internet and observe the great job our hosts do in connecting with our consumers to purchase our jewelry and lifestyle products. Much like it has been in my past when you launch a new product, it is very exciting to see the products we manufacture and buy from suppliers appear on tv and the internet, where you get to see the consumer reaction to what you have done.
I am a big believer in building relationships and follow the saying “People like to work with people they like”!
Lastly, I want to take a few words and talk about VGL’s vision, mission, and values. For me, vision, mission and values create the overall purpose of the organization – what we do, why, and how. They are the guideposts that frame our behaviors at work every day. If you are ever wondering about something that you are working on or if a decision you are about to make is the right thing to do, I would suggest that you reference the vision, mission, and values to help you make the right decision
