VP Human Resources
Vice President, Human Resources
I joined the bank into the newly-created VP of HR position to create an HR infrastructure to match the then-current rapid growth. I created and presented management training programs, restructured training from a university environment to “learning at a distance”, restructured the benefits plans (saving $1.1MM per annum) and the worker’s comp program (12% reduction in comp costs), revised the employee handbook, created a HIPAA manual and associated training and introduced innovative recruiting and interviewing techniques. At the direction of bank examiners, the bank deeply retrenched and my position, along with four other recently created VP positions, was eliminated.
