Redington has expanded its senior team with the appointment of its first chief people officer focused on staff wellbeing and engagement.
Katherine FitzGerald takes up the role, joining the firm’s executive leadership team. She joined Redington as head of people in 2020, and leads all aspects of the firm’s people operations.
This includes culture, well-being and engagement, recruitment and onboarding, alongside performance management.
Since joining Redington, FitzGerald has been involved in a number of people, organisational development and change initiatives at the firm. This includes a refresh of Redington’s family-friendly policies.
Alongside her people and leadership expertise, the Redington executive leadership team will also benefit from FitzGerald’s 20 years of experience working with and engaging stakeholders at all levels on businesses strategic objectives.
Prior to joining Redington, she held several senior people and strategy roles with a focus on collaborative team working, coaching, organisational and implementation skills.
Sylvia Pozezanac, CEO at Redington, said: “The most critical driver of our success at Redington is our incredible and talented team. We are therefore thrilled to recognise this by creating a new executive role.
“We are proud to appoint Katherine as our chief people officer and to our leadership team. Katherine has had a significant impact since joining Redington and this promotion reflects her many contributions and her skills. I look forward to continuing to work closely with her in this new capacity.”
