She succeeds Dave Cowfer, who has elected to retire after providing exceptional human resources leadership to Novolex for more than seven years.
“The 10,000 people who make up our Novolex family are the heart of our company and I am pleased to have Lisa leading our human resources organization,” said Novolex Chairman and CEO Stan Bikulege. “Lisa brings considerable expertise in talent acquisition, talent development and organizational design, and she is known for driving continuous improvement. Lisa will make an immediate impact on our continued focus on creating a culture that represents the communities in which we operate, provides equitable access to opportunities to learn and grow, and where all our people feel included.”
